History-Making Scientists

Welcome!

ColorMePhD is excited to feature History-Making Scientists who inspire us. Throughout history, the contributions of many BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) in STEMM (science, technology, engineering, math, and medicine) have been overlooked. We would like to begin to recognize the work of these brilliant individuals with this series of free coloring pages.

This resource is a work in progress: If you would like to nominate someone to be featured, please send an email to julie@colormephd.org with your name, full name of scientist you would like us to feature, and why this scientist inspires you. Please use the subject line "History-Making Scientist Nomination" for your email. Thank you!

In honor of Black History Month, we will be posting a series of free Coloring Pages Featuring Black History-Making Scientists throughout February. These remarkable scientists, engineers, and physicians excelled despite facing racist threats and countless barriers placed in their way, and inspired generations with their ground-breaking research and dedication to education.

Stay posted every Monday and Friday starting February 1st for new pages!
