Teachers and Indifference
I started out as a lab assistant, but I'm now a chemistry teacher and researcher.
New School is an amazing place. We've managed to set up a working laboratory using school facilities. This lets younger pupils and final-year students alike feel like real scientists. We try to make science cooler and more popular. It's difficult to study chemistry without practice— it's in the nature of this science. The wrong approach can kill students' interest in chemistry and science, leaving them with a fear of failure. We've been able to devise the most visually impressive, and in some cases unique, experiments. For example, did you know that a magnet can attract liquid oxygen? That's the kind of thing we look at in our practical classes.
