Pictures of famous scientists in chronological order running from the Ancient Greeks up to modern day 'TV' scientists.
Each page has a picture and a description of what the scientist discovered.
I have done my best to include scientists from a wide range backgrounds but unfortunately, there's no getting away from the fact that most historical scientists were white males.
I also don't teach much biology so most of the scientists are chemists or physicists.
Feel to comment back on scientists you think should be included and why and I'll try to update it.
This is a useful starting point, and I really appreciate the hard work you've put in, but based on your inaccurate portrayal of Galileo, it'll be necessary to fact-check the rest of the resource before putting it up on the wall. Your comment regarding Galileo's relationship with the Church is very misleading. May I recommend some reading? There's plenty out there; Tim O'Neill's work on Quora is a good start: http://qr.ae/TF225B
Thanks for your feedback and for the link regarding Galileo. Feel free to update him accordingly. The timeline was intended to link into various threads / personalities discussed in the schemes of work I encountered at KS3 to KS5 as well as showing the development of ideas throughout history.
As much I would have loved to have had the time to reference and cross-check each and every one of the scientists' histories, unfortunately teaching got in the way...
