Inspiring West Virginians on LearningMedia

Oct 29, 2015

Lewis Cantley, groundbreaking medical researcher and an Inspiring West Virginian.

For over five seasons WVPB has broadcast Inspiring West Virginians, a radio series telling stories of West Virginians who are exceptional leaders in science and business.  We visit them where they are, learn about what they do, hear stories of their childhoods and the influence of a West Virginia upbringing.  Added to that are the perspectives of friends, relatives and colleagues.

Five of those stories have been made into short videos and posted to West Virginia LearningMedia  for use in the classroom.  The videos are accompanied  with curricula for math and science. http://wv.pbslearningmedia.org/collection/inspiring-west-virginians/
