Getting young scientists into the science teacher pipeline

the School of Science, he is spending the summer at The Children's Museum, the world's largest children's museum, where he dons a tie-dyed lab coat and presents hands-on chemistry experiments, including one he developed during his internship to make biodiesel fuel from plant oils, to enthusiastic visitors of all ages.

"I really like chemistry and originally I planned to be a chemist, but while working as a recitation leader, which is similar to an undergrad teaching assistant, I kept having light bulb moments when I saw students finally getting it. It was then that I decided to be a high school chemistry teacher. Working in informal science education this summer at the museum has reinforced that decision," said Andry of Moorseville, Ind.

"All three Noyce Interns here at the museum this summer are curious and you can see that they have a spark for science. Without that spark, it's very hard to make science fun. They are clearly on life-long science learning paths and hopefully those paths will take them into middle school or high school classrooms as teachers and mentors," said Michele Schilten, M.S., school programs manager at The Children's Museum.

Artis Hailey of Hammond, Ind., and Abby Soltis of Des Moines, Iowa, are the two other Noyce Interns working at The Children's Museum this summer. Both are Butler University undergraduates also working for IUPUI engineering degrees through the IUPUI/Butler University Engineering Dual Degree Program.

Hailey's enthusiasm for science focuses on the technological end of the spectrum. A dual economics and computer engineering major, he already is thinking about career options and is enthusiastic about teaching technology to middle and high school students.

"There aren't very many technology teachers out there and the need to get kids to think outside the box to solve problems is great," Hailey said. "I'd like to get more kids as excited about technology as I am." As a Noyce Inter
