My NSTA / Peers / Rebecca Jane Austin-Datta

"Why?" is my favorite scientific word: there are more questions than answers in science, and I am impatient to find out the rest of the answers... As a High School Chemistry Teacher, I wanted to inspire students to become scientists - after four years teaching in Duval County I am proud and pleased that many of my HS students went on to major in chemistry, bio-chemistry, and related majors. I am currently applying my chemistry knowledge to my own studies as a full-time PhD student in Public Health, and am about to embark on an adventure as a CDC Science Ambassador Fellow.

    I am teaching a Semester class of Career Research (8th Grade) and this collection of Career of the Month from The Science Teacher journal will be a wonderful resource.

    Medical Science Careers

    Next semester I am booked to teach a Middle School class on Career Research... we are a Medical Magnet school, and I wanted to have some ideas up my sleeve to help start the semester with a sparkle. I already have excited students emailing me wanting to know what the class scope is (they heard about the Food Science Research class I led last year!), so these resources are EXACTLY what I needed to help me start thinking of outside-the-box medical science careers.
