Edward van Nostrand
Edward van Nostrand, head of the science department at Holy Heart of Mary High School in St. John's, Newfoundland has a strong belief in the power of integration to motivate and excite students. He has made it his mission to show students who are not normally inclined to study sciences how they can use scientific technology such as computers and the Internet to improve their critical and creative-thinking skills. He then gets students to use these tools in activities that range from creative writing to science fairs. Parents have reported that this approach has brought their children great success in the sciences.
