Professor Robert Powers

Science Educator

This is Professor Powers’s first year teaching at The Summit, and he couldn’t be more tickled. The Professor has been teaching Chemistry and Physics to highschoolers for 7 years. He has his BS in Chemistry Education from MSU, and an M.Ed in STEM Education from Concordia University. He has been a leader in local science education for the past 2 years after he and his wife started Professor Powers Science Symposium, a non-profit organization offering high-qualiity science education opportunities to kids and adults via hands-on, project-based classes on evenings and weekends, and week-long camps in the summer. When he’s not completely immersed in sharing his passion for science with everyone around him, he plays guitar and sings in various local bands, and also spends time with his wonderful wife and their 3 rambunctious and precocious boys, 2 dogs, one fierce kitten, and an immortal guppy.
