Two LSOP Interns Awarded Noyce Scholarship
Brenna Sydow and Emma Szalach, both interns at Little Shop of Physics, are the two recipients of the 2021 Colorado State University Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship. This highly competitive $10,000 scholarship is named after Robert Noyce, the co-founded Intel, and is funded by the National Science Foundation. The goal of the scholarship is to support undergraduate STEM majors who are interested in becoming teachers. For each year that they receive a Noyce Scholarship, future teachers commit to teaching at a high-need K-12 school. This helps to ensure that these well-prepared teachers end up in the schools that need them most.Congratulations Brenna and Emma!
Brenna Sydow is a Natural Sciences major with a biology concentration. This photo was taken at a teacher workshop in Oranjemund, Namibia. Brenna blends biology and physics as she works as part of the LSOP Traveling Science Experience and LSOP Live. She brings her creativity to building experiments and enthusiasm to working directly teaching students and teachers.
Emma Szalach is a Natural Sciences major with a biology concentration. This photo was taken during The Goo Show! episode of the LSOP Live. Emma has been an integral part of our pivot to remote learning, working on LSOP Live and other videos, as well as taking the lead on our TikTok presence. Emma is currently working to redesign one of our displays in the CSU Physics Department.
