Topics might be: the technical innovations created or research conducted in a particular geographic region, institutions of science and technology, the individuals or communities working in technology, etc.
These are individual projects. You will determine the type of your final product (essay, report, annotated bibliography etc).
To complete this research you will likely need to locate 1) one or more primary historical sources (documents written during the time you are focusing on and by scientists, or science administrators working in the city), 2) at least two secondary historical sources that place the primary sources in their historical context (works written by contemporary historians), and/or 3) a map of the region during the time period (or close to it).
Formal Title (underlined): A descriptive sentence that tells the reader about the project (here is your chance to be poetic).
