If you have a special respect for science, one way to pay tribute and learn more about the topic is via a scientist essay. Choose a favorite scientist and try to describe his or her achievement, discovery, or contribution. To do this, you’ll likely have to wrap your head around the topic, to understand the state of the field prior to the discovery, to explore how the discovery was made and what made it possible, to describe its impact and legacy, to explain the experimental or theoretical challenges. The particular discovery or scientific discipline is likely to dictate which scientist you plan to write about. Check out the essays below for a few topics and samples of proper writing.
