| ||Hello! I am Mrs. Sountsova. I teach physics and mathematics at Bancroft School in Worcester, Massachusetts. This summer (2011) I participated in one of the most exciting program for teachers: Research Experiences for Teachers in Biophotonics at Boston University. The RET program was designed to provide teachers with an opportunity to acquire research skills in the cutting edge areas of biophotonics and develop photonics-relevant curriculum materials for implementation in the classroom. The teachers worked in pairs under a faculty/principal investigator's supervision.|
My RET partner was David Bennett, a chemistry teacher from Newton North High School. We worked in the Laboratory of Integrated Nanophotonics and Biosensing Systems under supervision of Professor Hatice Altug.
