ORHS science dept. chairperson testifies before Congressional committee

Abstract:
When students use specialized equipment, they can understand the complexity and principles behind science in ways that lectures, textbooks or simulations can't teach, Nita Ganguly, chairperson of the Oak Ridge High School Science Department, testified Tuesday before a Congressional subcommittee in Washington, D.C. She was invited to speak on the benefits of providing nanotechnology tools for high school students.

Ganguly testified at the hearing before the Research and Science Education Subcommittee of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Science and Technology. The Oak Ridge Public Schools Education Foundation assisted with travel expenses to Washington so that Ganguly could appear before the subcommittee.

The subcommittee heard testimony on the Nanotechnology in the Schools Act, H.R. 2436, which calls for grants to provide tools needed to strengthen the capacity of secondary schools, colleges and universities to prepare students for careers related to nanotechnology.
