As an elementary school teacher, I realize how important physics really is and how much I really do love learning how things work. I constantly encourage my students to ask questions and figure out the why and how of things.
This summer, I was able to practice what I preach.
I interned as a Kenan Fellow with the NC Science Festival on an elementary school program about the physics of flight. It has been an unexpected yet wonderful experience especially working with my mentors ─ Jonathan Frederick, the director, and Marissa Hartzler, the statewide programs coordinator for the NC Science Festival. Their limitless creativity is so inspiring!
