About Me
I teach Physics and Environmental Chemistry at St. Mark's, a private coed boarding school in eastern Massachusetts. I'm particularly keen on project-based teaching in science! Some past projects included a solar-powered pickup truck, a 50-gallon biodiesel processor and various electronic, robotic and rocket projects.
We have moved away from using textbooks in Physics and in Environmental Chem; most of the materials students use is authored by their teachers accessed on their computers. My AP Physics class "publishes" their rocket research findings to their classmates on a wiki.

Over the past ten or so years, I've been working at bringing a more environmental approach to my high school science classes, while still engaging students in science, technology, engineering and math with appropriate rigor.



I'd like to share some of the things that are working for me, and I'm curious about the experiences teachers of younger students have with teaching science to their age groups. I'm curious - can we imagine a way to create an educational experience for students that… Continue
