Katherine Smyre

Katherine Smyre teaches 7th grade science at West Cary Middle School in Wake County. Through her project, A Day in the Park: Invasive Species and the Arts, Katherine will develop tools to help teachers take advantage of the North Carolina Museum of Art Nature Park and research the invasive plant species restoration that is occuring there. Students will learn about science as well as create art from their research. Dr. Rita Hagevik, NC A & T, and Joseph Covington, of the North Carolina Museum of Art, are Katherine’s mentors.
