NCCAT alumna helps students in science

We are always excited to hear how NCCAT alumni continue to make a difference in classrooms across the state. It was good to read recently about Allison Stewart, a teacher at FPG Bilingüe Elementary School in Chapel Hill-Carrboro, who used her summer internship with the NC Science Festival to help students. Here is what she wrote for the Kenan Fellows ...

"As an elementary school teacher, I realize how important physics really is and how much I really do love learning how things work. I constantly encourage my students to ask questions and figure out the why and how of things. This summer, I was able to practice what I preach. I interned as a Kenan Fellow with the NC Science Festival on an elementary school program about the physics of flight. It has been an unexpected yet wonderful experience especially working with my mentors ─ Jonathan Frederick, the director, and Marissa Hartzler, the statewide programs coordinator for the NC Science Festival. Their limitless creativity is so inspiring!"
