Resource:Eric Weisstein's World of Scientific Biography
Provider:Eric Weisstein's World of Scientific Biography
Summary:Age Range: 11-18 (Grades 6-12, with parental supervision). This website offers over 1,000 encyclopedia-style biographies of scientists along with illustrations.
Description:When you get to the site, use the menu on the left side of the screen to search for a scientist by:
  • Branch of Science - Search for a scientist by his/her field of study from Archaeology to Sociology.

  • Gender/Minority Status - Women, African Americans, Asian Americans, etc. (Note: This section is woefully short on scientists of varying races and ethnicities. Fortunately, the FAQ section on this website tells you how to submit names for inclusion.)

  • Nationality - Find scientists from many nations including the U.S., China, Egypt, France, Germany, Israel, Japan, Pakistan, and Russia.

  • Prize Winners - Read the Bios of Scientists and Mathematicians who have been awarded prizes (i.e., The Nobel) for their work.

  • Alphabetical Index - An A to Z list of all of the scientists and mathematicians whose biographies are archived on the website. Choose the letter, then click on any name, and a new page opens with the scientist's picture (if available) and bio. References are provided as well.
As mentioned previously, there are over 1,000 entries and we only read about 10. Therefore, AS ALWAYS, parents should preview the site to determine suitability of content.
