Nicholas Gross

Part-Time Instructor

I have always been driven to understand how nature works and help others understand it also. I find it particularly satisfying when I can design an experience for participants (students, teachers, and the public) that gives them freedom to explore a phenomena, test their preconceptions and then draw conclusions that are more aligned with expert understanding. In this way participants have an experience that is very much like the process of science.
