ScienceMakers have made advances in scientific research and include chemists, engineers, and physicists, as well as science education administrators.

In 2009, the National Science Foundation awarded The HistoryMakers a three-year grant to interview 180 of the nation's top African American scientists, create curriculum based on the interviews, and hold public programs featuring the scientists. The goal of the ScienceMakers initiative is to create positive role models, increase the number of African Americans, women, and other minorities entering STEMprofessions, and use their life stories as a way to encourage others to enter scientific professions.
