Dr. David Westenberg’s passion for educating the public will be recognized with the Academy of Science St. Louis’ Science Educator Award during the 23rd Annual Outstanding St. Louis Scientists Awards on April 6.
The award is given annually to “a distinguished individual on the basis of outstanding contributions to science education or to the public understanding of science, engineering, or technology.” An associate professor and interim chair of biological sciences, Westenberg often engages individuals at schools and public events through hands-on activities and encourages students to participate.
