Each of you will be assigned to research an individual who made a significant contribution to the field of PE.  You will be asked to research this individual and report your findings in the form of a poster presentation.  The poster should contain at least the following elements:

1. A photograph or drawing
2. A description of the major contribution (s) to the field
3. A brief biography
4. A description of how the contributions have affected the field

You may add other elements if you feel that they add to the quality of the project.  Each student will present his/her poster to the class, so please prepare a five-minute oral presentation that will enhance the poster.

Here are a few Internet sites to help you get started.  Please don't discount other sources such as encyclopedias, textbooks, or other items found in the CIMC or other libraries.
