Great Scientists Series

This project began with my desire to share about the great scientists of time with my daughter. As I researched for information, I found that there was a large number of books that were part of the public domain which contained information on these scientists. While I was putting the information together to use with my daughter I realized what a great resource this would be for others and that's how the Great Scientist Series began.

At this time I am working on compiling the information into 4 volumes that will follow the historical time period divisions as laid out in The Well Trained Mind by Jessie Wise & Susan Wise Bauer. Each volume includes a list of the scientists of that age, a timeline of the major scientific discoveries, timeline figures and a collection of articles about those scientists from the public domain. So far two of these titles are available…

My hope is to one day separate this information into 5 discipline differentiated volumes as well.

Currently these volumes are available as eBooks free of charge or as "at cost" books from my Lulu Store.
