National Recipient

David Keefe

David Keefe decided to make sure the science education of his students at Menihek Integrated High School in Labrador City, Newfoundland, did not suffer because the school is in an isolated mining town. He made the most of the resources available and took advantage of funding from corporate sponsors to expose his students to a wide and varied science program. In Labrador City, and now at Ascension Collegiate High School in Bay Roberts, Newfoundland, he has exposed students to the joys of scientific observation through his star parties and has shown them how science applies to everything from auto-mobiles to model rockets.
