Classical Science Department

LCHS is a habitat for learning designed to prepare young men and women for successful individual futures as members of a larger community. Science and technology/ engineering are integrally related to mathematics.

An effective program in science and technology/engineering addresses students' prior knowledge and misconceptions. Investigation, experimentation, and problem solving are central to science and technology/engineering education. Students learn best in an environment that conveys high academic expectation for all students.

Investigating Deflategate in Honors Chemistry

Serendipity- in Honors Chemistry we are studying the IDEAL GAS LAW.  For you sports enthusiasts, the Ideal Gas Law describes the relationship between the temperature, pressure, volume and quantity of a gas. It is also something that the New England Patriots CLEARLY missed in high school Chemistry class. #wellsreport #obsessed #nerdsrule.

Courses I teach: This is my second year with LCHS, I will be teaching one section of CP Physics and four sections of Honors Physics.

Colleges I attended: University of Chicago, PhD from Physical Science Division; Chinese University of Hong Kong, earned MPhil degree working on Organometallic Chemistry, and BSc degree, Second Upper Honor, Chemistry major and minor in Marketing.

Year I started teaching at LCHS: 2016.

Favorite topic in science: For year 2017, it will be the Total Solar Eclipse across Continental US  – This event provides scientists the opportunity to study the Sun and its Corona for ninety some minutes when the data from all the telescopes (same type and same parameters taking the TSE) comes in.  I was at Carbondale, IL on August 21st, 2017 to experience it in person!!  Wow...How small we all are!

Favorite scientific fact: The number of water molecule in a bucket is greater than the number of bucket needed to hold all the water on Earth. 
AND 
Among all the water we have on Earth, 97% is in the form of salt water. Only 3% is fresh and among them, two thirds are ice. So what percentile is fresh liquid water?

Favorite activity outside of teaching: Learning about advances in sciences and IT, cooking and photography, watching movie and documentary, and enjoying Chinese food, especially dim sum, with friends and family.

If you could be an element in the periodic table it would be: Osmium, Os – It has the most mass per unit volume.
