Resource:Biographies of Scientists
Provider:Eric Weisstein's World of Scientific Biography
Summary: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:

*Alphabetical Index - An A to Z list of all of the scientists and mathematicians whose biographies are archived on the website. Click on any one, and a new page opens with the scientist's picture and bio. References are provided as well.

*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.

As mentioned previously, there are over 1,000 entries and I only read about 10. Therefore, AS ALWAYS, parents should preview the site to determine suitability of content.
