My name is Sydney Kay and I am a senior chemistry major with minors in math and education. I am from Long Island, New York. I have done research at Ithaca College for three semesters with Professor DJ Robinson. I have also done education fieldwork at Lansing High School in a 10th-grade earth science class, as well as, at Gordon Parks School with the 7th grade. The combination of my research and field experience has confirmed my passion for chemistry education. I plan on attending graduate school for my teaching certification in STEM and eventually go on to be a chemistry teacher.
