George Washington Carver: Agriculture Pioneer
By Stephanie Macceca
Born into slavery, George Washington Carver worked hard, earned a university graduate degree, and eventually became a world-famous expert on plants. By experimenting with peanuts and other plants, he learned how to make many useful products from them. Carver taught students and farmers how to grow plants without damaging the soil. For more information on plants, read The World of Plants, another book in the Mission: Science series.
