In this case study, the author examines how to engage history of science students with primary sources. Students learned about material culture analysis and then applied sensory and intellectual engagement skills to answer Bingo card clues about rare scientific and medical texts. Using a game format encouraged non-history majors to engage with historical sources in a fun and engaging way. In future iterations, scaling down the Bingo cards to build in more time for group reflection would help reinforce the learning objectives.
