Shadow Hills High School
“I believe that physics is often be viewed as difficult or boring. I want to help my students realize that physics, while challenging, is anything from boring. I hope to help students realize and understand that physics tries to describe how everything works, and how these concepts relate to their lives beyond the classroom.”
Hannah participated in a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Haystack Observatory. Through the program, she identified and mapped 36 GHz methanol masers in star-forming regions. In the two summers immediately following completion of her undergraduate degree, she worked at the Science Center of Iowa Summer Camp, where she developed and implemented hands-on science curriculum for campers in first through eighth grades. Additionally, Hannah taught physics and astronomy to students in grades four through eight at Astrocamp—an experiential, outdoor science camp—for two years.
Hannah enjoys fishing, kayaking, doing jigsaw puzzles, and baking.
