HISTORY WITH SCIENCE

OH provides short, entertaining stories about little-known people and events told with a science emphasis. Created with the help of educators and students, each OH is based on primary materials and accompanied by supplemental online resources from government agencies, journals, respected publications, as well as other media. The Rabbit Hole curated searches will lead you to related material, always up to date thanks to the power of the internet. OH can be your gateway to inquiry.

 

Our authors range from amateur historians, educators, interested hobbyists, and professional historians who want to reach a broader audience. If you want to contribute to OH, we want to hear from you!
