Creating excitement about science

Rice University faculty and students are using Play-Doh and microprocessors to inspire the next generation of scientists in the Houston area.

The ConocoPhillips Rice Elementary Model Science Lab provides teachers with programs and experiments designed to spark the interest of elementary school-age children.

The program targets science teachers who have the potential to become leaders on their campuses.

Greetings, I am a video producer at Rice University in the Office of Public Affairs. I became a Rice Owl in June 2011. Before that, I was at KPRC-TV in Houston as a special projects photojournalist for seven years, where I covered everything from hurricanes to sports. Southeast Texas has been my home my entire life. I am lucky to have a wonderful wife and two of the cutest girls I have ever seen. Go Owls!
