PECORE 3. Twentieth Century Scientists Who Exemplify the Interplay of Creativity and Giftedness Introduction In the 20th century, innovative scientists made many contributions to our society and well-being, as well as expanded our basic understanding of natural phenomena. Children today study the structure and function of cells, DNA, and the atom using computer simulations and videos at home and at school. In this chapter, we focus on the life histories and accomplishments of three 20th century Nobel Prize-winning scientists to gain an understanding of the factors that may have influenced their interest in science and unlocked their creative potential.

At the same time, a certain level of structure and predictability is needed in order to not have creativity be diluted by too many stimuli or be stifled by activities that are too narrowly focused. Epstein also recommended that the optimal learning environment for fostering creativity be one that incorporates formal liberal arts instruction balanced by informal opportunities to explore and cultivate individual interests. Davis (2003) noted that certain personality characteristics are common among highly creative individuals.
