We could not be more thrilled to welcome two new members to the EAGR team, Dr. Timothy Linksvayer and Dr. Frederic Bertley, who will act as our UPenn Faculty Advisor and Franklin Institute Staff Advisor respectively.
Dr. Bertley is the Vice President Science and Innovation of The Franklin Instutite, and will provide support by hosting EAGR workshops, advising our educational outreach efforts, helping EAGR to build connections with students, science educators, and community members.
Dr. Linksvayer is an Assistant Professor at The University of Pennsylvania. He will be advising the development of EAGR courses, providing consultation on experimental designs, networking with local academic colleagues, and interacting directly with students during EAGR workshops.
As the EAGR network grows, Dr. Linksvayer and Dr. Bertley will be indispensable assets to the program as leaders in Philadelphia’s scientific education community. Their time is greatly appreciated, and their presence as advisors on the EAGR team is sure to enhance the workshop experience for students and educators alike.
