Product Description

Valerie Thomas, African American Scientist & Inventor, NASA Pioneer: Valerie Thomas was a highly successful African American NASA scientist during a time that females, particularly black women, were shunned by the scientific community. She played a vital role leading many important programs at NASA, especially those related to satellites. She is best known for her invention of the illusion transmitter, the precursor to today's 3D technology.

In this assignment, students read a 2-page reading about the life and scientific accomplishments of Valerie Thomas. They then answer 10 text-dependent reading comprehension questions related to Thomas' scientific work.

Great as a sub plan!
