We’re brave, but not Jeremy Babendure (’97) brave.
Now that he’s finished his Ph.D. in biomedical sciences at UC San Deigo, Jeremy is directing the university’s BioBridge program, which brings cutting-edge science to high-school classrooms around San Diego. Which is, to say the least, a courageous thing to do.
Of course, from all reports, it’s a terrific and wildly successful program. You can see Jeremy on the news here, and here. For the video-averse, additional reporting is here. For the video and article-averse, it’s on an eight-track tape, here.
(Back when we were in ninth grade, somebody accepted a $10 bet and swallowed a formaldehyde-laced dissection frog. Jeremy says nothing like that has happened yet.)
