Compelling Stories at the Heart of Science and Society

The Science History Institute in Philadelphia collects and shares the stories of innovators and the discoveries that shape our lives. As the natural repository for the history of chemistry, chemical engineering, and the life sciences, the institute preserves, interprets, and houses an archive and library of award-winning digital content that includes videos, articles, and a podcast for the scientifically curious public and scientists alike. Visitors to the website will find free online resources with interesting information and opportunities for interaction. For example: “Distillations” reveals the role of science in our world with articles, podcasts, and videos that uncover hidden stories and seek new perspectives on science and technology. “Try This @ Home” is an engaging video series featuring hands-on scientific activities and tutorials that teachers, students, and their families can try in their home setting. In the “Historical Biographies” section, students meet people behind some of science’s most important milestones—from Lavoisier to Carver, Curie to Crick. The “Things Fall Apartvirtual tour (on Google Arts & Culture) takes students on an exploration of the life and afterlife of things—and why we fight to preserve them. And in the Science Matters role-playing game, students debate the positive and negative viewpoints on environmental issues by adopting roles of characters representing differing positions.
