This resource shares a modified template that was created to provide meaningful inclusion in science. The template attends to the importance of the cognitive and the emotional and important considerations that our children, particularly children of color and particularly our Black children need to know and understand to help them thrive. I created this modified template in 2017 as a research template that could be used as a potential resource for the K-12 classroom. The template was not my original idea but was derived from a pre-existing template available on NASA.gov. However, what led me to use this template and to modify it was that very few of the exemplars represented Black scientists of engineers. As a matter of fact only about a handful were Black. I added three questions to the template that I thought were important - namely the questions on the obstacles and challenges faced, how I made it, and advice to people of African origins.
