Baseball Card Project You will create a baseball card for your famous scientist What does it look like? A baseball card has 2 sides with information The front side is visual The back side is informational Requirements: You must use at least one credible source. NO WIKIPEDIA
Front of the Card picture of the person something to do with their experiment a formula that made them famous Niels Bohr Physicist 1885 - 1952
Back of the Card Describe the contribution to science that made the person famous Include the date of the scientific theory Include a citation from your source (s) Niels Bohr was a physicist in Denmark 1913 – Bohr published expanded theory of the atom This explained that electrons traveled in certain successively Larger orbits. Bohr then published a theory on atoms emitting radiation. This showed electrons jumping from a higher energy level to a Lower energy level and emitting light. This later became known As Quantum Mechanics 1922 – Bohr won the Noble Prize in Physics for his work on Atomic Structure. Source: Ottaviani, Jim.
