This WebQuest is designed to introduce students to the key scientists or "pivotal players" in stem cell research. Their discoveries and advancements in technology have helped our knowledge of stem cells evolve into what we know today. Student groups will construct a newspaper to discuss the contributions of the following individuals who have been deemed critical to our understanding of stem cells. Their job is to discover WHY. What did each person do that increased our knowledge of stem cells? What technologies were used or invented? In other words, if these people never existed, what would the scientific world be missing?
