Who Are the Scientists with a Visual Impairment?

This assignment came about in order to encourage my students to consider the work of scientists and mathematicians who are visually impaired.

Students research a scientist or mathematician of their choice who is blind or visually impaired and write an essay on the chosen individual.  
 
This assignment was designed to be done outside of class as an extra credit assignment but could be completed in class.
 
In this case, students will need the means to research the scientist of choice.  I would recommend taking the class to the library to research or allowing students to work on devices if internet access is available. Assist as necessary.
