Teacher Workshop
Act 48/CEU Credits Offered

It wasn’t just men that were shaping scientific practices in the 19th century; women had a big impact, too! Discover how these savvy ladies’ handmade herbaria and school books influenced scientific thinking over a hundred years ago. Learn new ways to replicate their experiments and see some unique items from the Historical Society’s collections. Documents will include ready-made lesson plans, primary source materials, and texts, some created by women, with the opportunity to learn how they were used and why they are still important today. All participants will also receive HSP’s spring issue of Pennsylvania Legacies focused on the history of science.
