The How to Be a Scientist: Smithsonian Women as Career Role Models project brings the stories and work of three contemporary Smithsonian scientists to your students through project kits of free, classroom-ready materials! Each kit highlights a scientist’s career journey and the importance of her work through educational resources including online interactives, 360° videos, classroom activities in a Smithsonian Learning Lab collection, and more.
