Description This biography and associated teaching material is part of a book of 20 life sciences modules designed to increase students' exposure both to female science role models and to hands-on, inquiry approach activities as recommended by the National Science Education Standards. Modules are designed to drop easily into middle and high school life sciences curricula, not to "add on". Each module includes: a brief biography of a female science role model and hands-on, inquiry approach and/or problem-solving life sciences, activities with a multidisciplinary focus. Role models include both contemporary and historical women, women of color and women with physical disabilities. Each activity is related to the work of the role model. Activity format includes suggestions for teachers, assessment ideas, and handouts for students.
