Peter Giordano

Peter Giordano, head of the science department at St. John's College in Brantford, Ontario, is a science booster both inside and outside the classroom. One example of this is his work with the school's science club. When the club had very few girls as members, he asked other teachers to introduce promising female candidates from their classes, and actively recruited them. The number of girls in the club increased dramatically as a result, and the past two presidents of the club have been girls. Mr . Giordano has also encouraged graduates to continue contributing to the club. He is building on this success by creating an electronic database of former students and the careers they have pursued in science, technology or mathematics.
