Andrew Cherkas

Andrew Cherkas is the founder of the "Society of Bubbleology." This group of distinguished scholars at Stouffville District Secondary School in Stouffville, Ontario, learns about mathematics and art using soap bubbles. Other students have been introduced to cryogenics through a study of ice-cream making. These are only some examples of a hands-on approach to problem-solving that Dr. Cherkas has successfully used to excite students, particularly girls, who may not normally be interested in science.
