GCA science students welcomed Dr. Thomas Altman, nationally awarded innovator in STEM and Physics, as a guest lecturer. Dr. Altman spent time with our Collegiate Academy’s Earth Science, Astronomy, and Physics classes, sharing his innovative techniques and exciting demonstrations. Students were treated to several hands-on lessons, including a demonstration of the Photoelectric Effect, for which Albert Einstein won a Nobel Prize.
Dr. Altman is the inventor of a technique used around the world for making holograms and is the creator of a laser optics kit used by thousands of students. He has won awards at the local, state, and national level for his innovative teaching techniques and his instructional videos have been viewed by over two million viewers on YouTube.
