Brandi’s Big Idea:
Brandi’s students went out of this world to learn about habitats, water filtration, and pollutants’ effects on habitats. First, her students designed a habitat for Merl the Mallownaut to survive on Mars in. They then created a water filtration system to keep the habitat sustainable. Last, they came down to Earth to apply their learning and design skills to test their local watersheds.
Brandi enjoys staying fit, running marathons, coaching volleyball, chasing after her four kids, and making memories with her husband.
In her own words: “If I can create one science nerd each year, then I consider my job a success. ”
