TEACHING

 

I teach a planetary science course to in-custody students through the Prison Education Project. This course allows those on the inside to further their education so that they can be prepared to contribute positively on the outside.

My work with PEP is on a volunteer basis and has no connection to Caltech, Brown University, or NASA. Please contribute to prison education by volunteering.
