Bio

How do you get non-science students to enjoy science? For Irit Cohen, who teaches biology, chemistry and mathematics at JWU’s Denver Campus, the trick is to focus on practical, real-world applications.

He enjoys showing them the beauty and making them think, "I can be a scientist. I can take that path."

Cohen loves hearing about students using science to solve everyday problems. That instance when he hears, "Oh I get it. I get it. I understand everything is connected," is what he lives for.”
