Physics for MCAT2015 within in the Early Medial Education Program: Summer 2014

Covered were all five content categories of MCAT2015 Foundational Concept 4 ”Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems”, with focus on the physics related topics and weigh in the results of the ”MCAT importance survey raking”. The course was designed to give students a general overview of physics prepare for the current medical school curriculum.

Scientist-in-Residence Program, Spring 2014:

Scientist-in-Residence program of the New York Academy of Sciences.
Together with two science teachers (Athena Theodoris and Kara MacDevitt) of the International High School at Lafayette we created the science elective ‘Finding Patterns within Chemical Reactions’ for high school students.
Over the course of several weeks, the students investigated the Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction in 1D, 2D, and 3D systems.

  • During the classes:
  • Research presentation at the New York Academy of Sciences:
  • Field trip to SUNY Downstate Medical Center:

STEM after school Program

The STEM after school program is a collaboration of the New York Academy of Sciences and the State University of New York.

Gavriel Feuer and I developed and teach the course ‘Game programming in Python – a STEM inspired approach’. You can download a PDF file of the cut-down version of the curriculum containing the introduction section and the first chapter. If you are interested in teaching this curriculum, please contact me and I can send you PDFs of the curriculum (a detailed instructors manual and a student handout). This is only to make sure that we keep track of where, by whom, and for how many students our curriculum has been used.
The NYAS created a short video with the title ‘Be a Part of the Solution in Science’ to promote the STEM after school program on Youtube. Our curriculum has also been taught by other mentors at SUNY Stony Brook and SUNY Polytechnic Institute.
