Abstract Details (PID = P168)
Title:Western Bias in Science (P168)
Description:Do all students see themselves reflected in the stories they hear about the history of science in our classes, or do they just hear about Western European men, like Newton, Darwin, Bohr, and Einstein? Might hearing that great scientific ideas have come from men and women all over the world inspire more of your students to pursue careers in STEM? Participate in a one-period activity that you can use to show students that people like them have contributed to the body of scientific knowledge, and learn about resources to help you tell a more complete story of the history of science.
