Marcel Degas – 2013 summer intern in the Industry Initiatives for Science and Math Education (IISME) program (http://iisme.org/).
Bio: My name is Marcel Degas and I have been teaching Biology at San Francisco International High School for 3 years now. SFIHS is a High School specially created for recent immigrant students who have been in the country for 3 years or less. I am originally from Huntington Beach, CA, but have spent significant time living in France and Syria. At LBNL this summer, I hope to gain exposure to cutting edge science research then brainstorm how to incorporate what I learned into my classroom. Ultimately, I hope to better prepare my student body to become the researchers of the future.
