African American Scientist Biography - Vivien Thomas, Cardiac Surgery Pioneer

Middle school nature of science READING WITH QUESTIONS worksheet activity:

Vivien Thomas was a successful African American cardiology researcher during a time that black scientists were shunned by the academic research community. Despite this, he played a vital role in the development of several life saving surgical techniques, including surgically correcting blue baby syndrome and implanting automatic defibrillators. Despite decades without proper recognition, his work has implications across modern cardiology.

In this assignment, students read a 2-page reading about the life and scientific accomplishments of Vivien Thomas. They then answer 10 text-dependent questions, some of which focus on the major steps of the scientific method that can be seen through Thomas' work.
