Science Source: Biographies of Thinkers as Doers

Here’s one for educators and students curious about our world beyond class assignments.

The Time 100 site offers excellent, readable biographies of 20th century thinkers and doers who helped make the world we live in today.

I appreciate Neal Postman’s description of Philo T. Farnsworth who credited his high school science teacher in ID with inspiring and teaching him enough about electrons, electricity to figure out by age 14 how to design the first “electronic television.” He first demonstrated a working model to the public on September 10, 1927, at age 21. Congratulations, Mr. Tolman, science teacher, for your world changing efforts.

This site offers quick study material for students preparing for national competition tests in science, politics, entertainment, etc.

A great site for novice biography readers and those of us trying to fill in what we’ve forgotten or missed.

I imagine grad students and sophisticated party guests use this site to prepare for light conversations with others who have little else in common besides “education.”
