Inspiring Women Scientists http://bit.ly/Z9Vtdk Inspiring Women Scientists in Microbiology and Ecology
I turned to my community on twitter to help me come up with a list of inspirational women scientists in environmental microbiology and ecology that have made an impact in their careers. Who are the top women in the field right now? Who is it that we would love to see speak?
Here is what we have so far ...
The Field Museum's Women in Science http://www.fieldmuseum.org/exhibits/exhibit_sites/wis/ The Field Museum's Women in Science
Read interviews with 13 women about why they chose careers in the sciences. All women work at the Field natural history museum in Chicago. The interviewees include an anthropologist, geologist, botanists, zoologists, and experts in exhibits and in environment and conservation.

What Do Scientists Do? http://tinyurl.com/g63q4 What Do Scientists Do?
This lesson will require students to do a report on distinct scientific fields using the Internet resources provided. The lesson should provide students with an idea of the diversity of science disciplines. Learning about the different science disciplines can help students see the connection between what they learn in the classroom and what goes on in the enterprise of science. The class will produce a booklet on science disciplines, with each student contributing a chapter.

The purpose of this project is to have the students ?eet?the scientists that they will study and relate to them as real people.
Quantum Physics made relatively simple : videos http://bethe.cornell.edu/index.html Quantum Physics made relatively simple : videos lectures
IN 1999, legendary theoretical physicist Hans Bethe delivered three lectures on quantum theory to his neighbors at the Kendal of Ithaca retirement community (near Cornell University). Given by Professor Bethe at age 93, the lectures are presented here as QuickTime videos synchronized with slides of his talking points and archival material.
Intended for an audience of Professor Bethe's neighbors at Kendal, the lectures hold appeal for experts and non-experts alike. The presentation makes use of limited mathematics while focusing on the personal and historical perspectives of one of the principal architects of quantum theory whose career in physics spans 75 years.

Quiz : Who wants to be a scientist? http://www.sycd.co.uk/only_connect/everywhere/quizzes.htm Who wants to be a scientist? is based on a well-known quiz format. It is a PowerPoint presentation, although it works well in class or as a lunchtime competition using overheads. To save ink print overheads in black and white.
Questions are taken from the multiple choice biology units provided below. The quiz could be run during lunch times as an inter-form competition, or within class time. After you have saved the PowerPoint quiz to your computer you can customise the questions as you wish. Each team will need their three lifeline cards to use once in the game. The game runs for about 20-30 minutes with four teams. You do need the killer question at the end for tie-breaks.

Famous Scientists Project http://www.metcalf.ilstu.edu/assign/sixth/science/famous.htm Famous Scientists Project
For this project, find a scientist who has made a major contribution to society. Find a biography of the scientist as well as information about that person's field of study. The sites below are a starting point for you. In addition, you must use some search engine to find out more about the person or the field of science.
You will be expected to type a three-page paper about your scientist and also present a PowerPoint presentation to the class about your person. Based on the information from your PowerPoint presentation, the class will vote to see if your scientist should be entered into the Sixth Grade Hall of Fame.
