Zachary Patterson

Zach was born in a molecular biology lab before growing up to become a teacher all at the UofA. He has taught his whole career in Calgary in middle and high school. He is a science fanatic with a prior research background looking at potential cancer therapeutics and developmental genetics in various model organisms. It was in this setting that he developed an understanding for the Nature of Science (NOS) and its importance in science education. Now a doctoral student, he is interested in exploring the connection between science education and public health, and looking at how changes to science teaching can improve public health outcomes in many areas.
