• Princeton University Materials Academy (PUMA)
     
    I am honored to serve as one of the master teachers for Princeton University's Materials Academy at the Princeton Center for Complex Materials (PCCM).  The Princeton University Materials Academy (P.U.M.A.) is a strong program committed to improving the science education of under-represented high school students in Trenton, NJ and the surrounding districts. P.U.M.A. brings 30-50 high school students to the labs of the Princeton Center for Complex Materials (PCCM) for 2-3 weeks every summer to teach them about science and engineering. Students learn through hands-on, inquiry-based activities, labs modeled after actual experiments currently done by PCCMs researchers, and lectures by faculty members and lead teachers. Topics covered include nano-technology, cancer research and materials science.
