Free Science Studies: Great Inventors & Their Inventions

We are nearly finished giving our free science studies a much needed update! These 16 lessons correspond to the popular book Great Inventors & Their Inventions by Frank P. Bachman.

Many homeschool families are familiar with this free public domain title that introduces readers to the inventors and inventions that have shaped our lives today. Christian Liberty Press has a more recent version that brings the text up to date.

By spending two weeks on each lesson you’ll have 32 weeks of science.

Inventors covered include:

  • James Watt.
  • Robert Fulton.
  • Michael Faraday.
  • Eli Whitney.
  • Johannes Gutenberg.
  • Samuel Morse.
  • Alexander Graham Bell.
  • Thomas Edison
  • The Wright brothers.
  • And others!

We have been at this now for over 20 years. The Internet is changing more rapidly now than at any other time in history. Therefore, reputable, stable resources are becoming increasingly difficult to find.

So we have added a handful of newer resources. We have updated or deleted links as necessary.

You’ll find parent/teacher suggestions, ideas for further investigation, hands-on and interactive activities, book recommendations, lesson plans and other units, and notebooking pages and printables.

Links to the free eBook and suggestions for using the lessons are on the introduction page.
