Interactive video lesson plan for: The Woman Who Saved the U.S. Space Race (And Other Unsung Scientists)

Activity overview:

One saved the U.S. space program, another invented a better treatment for leprosy, and a third spawned an industry in the American Midwest. Mary Sherman Morgan, Alice Ball and Rachel Lloyd all had amazing accomplishments in chemistry, but their work was nearly lost to history. Celebrate their work with us in the latest episode of our sub-series, "Legends of Chemistry". Don't forget to subscribe for more legends and chemistry fun: http://bit.ly/ACSReactions
