Becky Baker is an Instructor in Physics, Astronomy and Materials Science. Becky has been a strong supporter of positive change in her department. Within the department Becky has helped produce the departmental assessment plan and report, led a committee effort to bring the 100 level physics sequence into a higher degree of consistency with other departments on campus. She has also been instrumental in helping to get the PhysBiz van on the road and into full implementation with Springfield Public Schools (SPS) second and fourth graders. The PhysBiz has already made 12 visits to area elementary schools this spring. For those who have not heard of or seen PhysBiz – it is a van equipped to take hands-on activities into targeted SPS elementary schools. Becky and others are seeking external funding to expand the possibilities for outreach.
