Stephen Hawking‘s life story is quite impressive.
Sabrina is working on a short research paper. She is allowed to choose any scientist from 1800 to the present, so she is studying Stephen Hawking and telling me all about him. I knew that he is disabled, but had no idea that he has fought through ALS longer than anyone. Learning some about his life outside his many scientific pursuits has been fun for her.
That always helps the subject of study come to life more. It helps people seem real, like they actually have feelings and memories and favorite things, which is good, because they do.
