Biology, Chemistry, and Hispanic Studies major Kelsey Barber ’17 (Nisbet Honors) spent her summer shadowing the chief orthopedic surgeon at Wellstar Paulding Hospital in Dallas, Georgia.
“I’m hoping students taking the class will have a new appreciation for how science helps explain what is going on in the world around us.”
This fall, Kelsey is teaching an Astronomy and Physics course to freshmen and sophomores at Spartanburg Methodist College. The class is designed as a basic introduction for non-science majors to these complicated concepts. Kelsey assists students during labs, teaching them to work with instruments, understanding concepts, and working algebraic problems related to the course.
Kelsey said, “The job has been very rewarding because it allows me to share my love of science with those who may not like science, or have not really learned anything about it before. I’m hoping students taking the class will have a new appreciation for how science helps explain what is going on in the world around us.”
