Timothy Brennan
Woodstock, VT
Environment: Rural
 
Big Idea:

It's important to balance theory with observations and to provide evidence for any claim. Students will apply this thinking to four big ideas in electromagnetics.

Tamica Stubbs
Charlotte, NC
Environment: Urban
 
Big Idea:

Schwann cells and myelin sheaths on neurons possess insulative properties which enhance the neuron's capability to generate, sustain and propagate an electrical signal along the axon to communicate with neighboring cells.
