Biographical Information

Edward Keller III taught college and high school students for more than 10 years before turning his attention to the fifth and sixth graders at Monongalia County's Second Ward Elementary School. To make science relevant and tangible to his young pupils he uses simple materials to explain scientific theory and in performing experiments. His students must be getting the message, because each year they participate in the Science and Invention Convention and the Celebrity Focus on Academics Program. During the summer, Mr. Keller leads deaf children to Wallops Island, Virginia, where they explore mysteries of marine biology. In 1986 he was selected the National Science Foundation Presidential Awardee in Science. Mr. Keller is a noted lecturer and author of several articles on science education as well as an advisor to the National Science Foundation.
