From digital collections and historical biographies to informative videos and virtual games, explore the Science History Institute’s exceptional educational resources—all in one place!
Our historical biographies and video series tell the stories of the women and men behind some of science’s most significant innovations. That includes Arnold O. Beckman, whose Beckman Legacy Project is featured prominently on our digital collections website of more than 5,000 digitized items. The Instrumental Chemist documentary film and Instruments of Change interactive exploration also highlight Beckman’s numerous contributions to scientific instrumentation. Another excellent resource is Distillations, which features a magazine, podcast, videos, and blog that focus on the roles of science in our society, with an issue archive containing more than a decade’s worth of content. The Institute also houses outstanding collections of historical objects, artworks, photographs, books, oral histories, and archives. And be sure to check out our virtual games and role-playing games that bring new perspectives to chemistry.
