Topic: 
Botswana to Bolivia - The Life of an Itinerant Science Educator
Tuesday, October 16, 2018 - 4:30pm
Venue: 
Hewlett 200
Speaker: 
Philip Deutschle (Salinas High School and Hartnell College)
Abstract / Description: 

Ranging across Botswana, Bolivia, Nepal, Denmark, The Navajo Nation, and small-town New Jersey, the intricacies of being an international science educator are explored. Does everyone think and communicate as "we" do? How can we maintain our sanity in an increasingly insane world? What are ways that we can best communicate scientific knowledge? These topics are explored in a web of poignant and often humorous anecdotes. The speaker, award-winning educator Phil Deutschle, holds degrees in Physics and Astronomy, is the author of, "The Two-Year Mountain: A Nepal Journey" and "Across African Sand: Journeys of a Witch-Doctor's Son-in-Law," and is the producer of the feature-length documentary, "Searching for Nepal."
