Discovery Timeline Presentation

Create 5- to 10-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation (with speaker notes) that shows a timeline displaying at least five significant discoveries made by humans prior to the 20th century, and five significant inventions made by humans prior to the 20th century. Neither should come from prehistory. Identify each item as a discovery or invention.

  • A discovery, as defined here, is when new knowledge is uncovered about something that already exists. For example, the discovery of the electron by J. J. Thomson in 1897 would be considered a discovery. Consider fields like medicine, biology, botany, and astronomy.
  • An invention is defined as the creation of something new and something that can be built.  An example would be the steam engine, invented by Thomas Newcomen in 1712.
