Product Description
This is a 13 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Famous Americans – George Washington Carver. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

African-American educator and agricultural researcher George Washington Carver grew up in MO with the white family that originally kept his mother as a slave. After earning his master’s degree in agriculture from Iowa State College in 1896, he headed the agricultural department at Booker T. Washington’s Tuskegee Institute for nearly 20 years.

Carver’s research and innovative educational programs were aimed at inducing farmers to replace expensive commodities, and he developed a variety of uses for crops such as cow peas, sweet potatoes and peanuts. Carver never made a significant contribution to scientific theory, and he developed no commercially feasible new products.

His ideas of sustainable agriculture based on renewable resources were out of step with his times, but perhaps not with the future. His early work enriched the lives of countless sharecroppers, and later in life he was a potent source of inspiration as a symbol of African-American achievement.
