Content of the sessions will range from technologies used in researching the deep ocean, identifying infectious microbes and communicating complex scientific concepts through stunning imagery.
“Life fascinates me! There is no greater miracle in nature! Students in my class learn to appreciate the processes of life right from the intricate molecular detail all the way up to the grand systems of nature. As a facilitator, I always seek to reinforce students’ natural sense of wonder and try to help them to develop an inquiring mindset. I believe that a good education is not merely about an accumulation of facts, but rather an exciting journey of personal discovery about the natural world as well as about the self as a learner.”
