VIEWS: 5 PAGES: 5

									                               SCIENTIST’S SPEED DATING

Choose a scientist that you are interested in researching. You will become this scientist in
mind and body! You are also single and looking for a partner. Well, you’re in luck – you will be
participating in a speed dating activity tomorrow in class. During this activity you will have the
opportunity to learn about other famous, single scientists who will be looking for a partner as
well – little did you know scientists could be cool eh?!?!

You will need to sell yourself to others so that you may be chosen for a partner. To be as
prepared as possible, rehearse your answers, be confident, dress the part – all of this will earn
you dates and marks! Make sure you fill in the sticker “Hello my name is…”

Information that you may be asked:
   1. Birthplace, background information
   2. Education
   3. Salary (remember money is not everything!)
   4. Your most significant contribution to biology – how has this impacted society?
   5. Why you would be the perfect date

You can fill out the attached information sheet to help you get started. You will also be
handing this in.

Some famous scientists to choose from:
Karl Ernst von Baer                  Robert Hooke                  Günter Blobel

***Include a bibliography on the back of your information sheet***
   How this will work:




                                                                                                 1
   1. Tomorrow, you will have 5-6 minutes to meet with a scientist and get to know them. You
   will record their information on the sheets provided and then move on to the next potential
   life partner. You will need to do this for 6 different scientists and be able to deliver your
   own material in an interesting and efficient way.
