What is the best thing about teaching in ESV? Meeting students from all across the state

 

Dr Melanie Denney

Brainstorm – BIG ideas in Neuroscience

What are your areas of interest in science? Love it all, but I do have a soft spot for chemistry.

What is the best thing about teaching in ESV? I love that we get to share some really exciting and unusual scientific ideas and applications with students that otherwise might not get a chance to hear about them. I also think that it is great that we give the students a range of tools in collaboration that they can take and use in future studies and beyond.

 

Dr Vernon Cook

Ms Lianora Bay

Brainstorm – BIG ideas in Neuroscience

What are your areas of interest in science? I get super excited about anything living, anything to do with rocks, and the history of things. I really like to explore the details of how things work as they are and how they came to be that way.

What is the best thing about teaching in ESV? We get to cover content that we don’t always have time to explore in other classes. We get to practice different teaching strategies due to its online nature, such as the green screen and creating digital discussions. It is often the first time students have come across some of the concepts or ideas, and it’s refreshing to see the varied ways that students approach them; they often respond from different angles to what I expect, and I value that element of risk-taking in their responses.

Ms Zarina Yusoff

Frontiers of Physics

What are your areas of interest in science? The field of Physics just excites me and I love exploring everything about it. My specific areas of interest would be aeronautics and it allows me to understand and break down the study, design and manufacturing of the science of flight.

What is the best thing about teaching in ESV? I love teaching ESV as it is a challenging new experience for me. It also opens the door for me to meet up with so many other young and enthusiastic students who have a major passion in the field of Astrophysics.

Mr Luke Bohni

Frontiers of Physics, The Nature and Beauty of Mathematics

What are your areas of interest in science? I’m an astrophysicist/mathematician at heart and love investigating weird and wacky ideas like multi-dimensional geometry and the mathematics of magic tricks.

What is the best thing about teaching in ESV?  ESV is a great opportunity to spread the word about the really cool things that are going on in the world of physics and mathematics. I love getting to know new students and getting them excited about the cool concepts and ideas that are covered in our ESV classes.
