Brian Koberlein, front, senior lecturer in RIT’s Department of Physics, and his team of educators asks Gwyn Guthiel and her middle-school classmates at the Harley School to “Prove Your World” during a science outreach presentation April 5. Koberlein and his colleagues are developing an inquiry-driven science television program, “Prove Your World,” for 8- to 13-year-olds—an age group with a teetering interest in science and technology. “Prove Your World” asks students to investigate science questions they find interesting. The pilot is in pre-production and will air on WXXI. Also pictured are artist and puppeteer Kevin Schoonover ’86 (graphic design), left; educator Julie Koberlein, back; Grant Guthiel, professor of psychology at Nazareth College, second from right; and Susan Sherwood, science education consultant, right. Not shown is Gail Grigg, professor of inclusive child education at Nazareth College.
