Dr. Robert Binder spoke with The Neighborhood Academy students!

20 Jan 2023

Through our partnership with The Neighborhood Academy, we had the exciting opportunity to have Dr. Robert Binder, (Professor, Department of Immunology) speak with 3 science classes this week! The Neighborhood Academy is a private, college preparatory high school and middle school for grades 6-12 in Pittsburgh, PA. 100% of their senior students are accepted into college. Dr. Binder presented to one 8th-grade science class and two 10th-grade science classes. His presentation titled "Who and what is a scientist?" touched on why scientists are so important and what their job is like. He worked through a fun interactive thought experiment demonstrating the scientific method. The students were excited to hear his story and asked many engaging questions. We hope that the students are inspired by his journey and will begin a journey of their own! 


Thank you to Dr. Robert Binder and The Neighborhood Academy!
