This assignment will take you back to another time....

The President of the United States plans to honor a scientist from the past. He has appointed a special team to find out about several people who may be choices for this honor. Only one will be chosen. You and your partner have been asked to report on George Washington Carver. He is the man who discovered more than 100 uses for the peanut. However, Dr. Carver worked on other projects besides peanuts. You will find out about his other research and learn how his work still helps people today. You and your partner will display your findings on a large poster.
