NYU Visits First Grade Science

Students in several science classes had an exciting and unique opportunity to learn about science from some of the brightest minds in the field. Guest teachers from New York University (NYU) visited Peck to teach students in some of the first, third and eighth grade classes about solar panel materials and other scientific concepts.
Two of our guests were doctoral candidates in material science, studying the latest developments in this field, working on research relating to solar panel technologies. They are team members of the lab of Dr. Stephanie Lee, an associate professor at NYU who led the lessons with the students. They engaged the students in hands-on experiments, helping them understand how light bends and how materials can be crystallized. Students also learned about polarized lenses, an important component of solar panels.

Lower School Science Teacher Dr. Kathy Kennedy was thrilled with the visit. "We are always looking for ways to inspire our students and to give them exposure to new and exciting fields of study," she said. "These young scientists from NYU have done just that, and we are grateful for their time and expertise!"
