Abstract

Students often have images of scientists influenced by the common stereotypes of the white male wearing a lab coat and eye glasses. Preservice teachers will teach children when they become a teacher, and their ways of viewing scientists can affect their students' understandings of science and scientists. To remediate their primary perceptions of white male scientists, the preservice teachers were asked to create digital stories including graphics, audio, and animations using either Window Movie Maker or PowerPoint during a six -week course. They used the Internet to research and then write their own science stories including "Women Scientists of the World" and "Forgotten Black Scientists". The preservice teachers commented that their digital story telling projects gave them an opportunity to learn about many outstanding female and minority scientists either forgotten or ignored from Athens to the 21st century.
