Collage of images realting to History Teaching Guides for Women and Minorities

Over 50 teaching guides that highlight the often forgotten historical contributions of women and minorities to the physical sciences are available on this site. These teaching guides meet national educational standards, can fit into social and natural science courses, and are available for free. These resources are easily integrated in classrooms from first grade through the college level, and they will provide students with a diverse set of roles models while also calling attention to ongoing diversity issues in STEM. A teaching guide typically includes a lesson plan, discussion questions, and an answer key, as well as other readings and resources.

In addition to the Teaching Guides, the Center for History has also created two educational games about the history of physics, Phystory and Heads Up.
