News, Information, and Updates for Primary, Discovery, and Millennium Charter Schools
A Message from our CEO, Carolyn Woods
This a friendly reminder to all TLC families that Primary, Discovery, and Millennium do not have this Monday, Feb 13th off. We do have NEXT Monday, February 20th off in honor of President’s Day.
This week our Chemistry classes got a chance to meet with a very special scientist in the field of organic biosensors. We really appreciate Dr Toby Nelson for taking the time to speak with our students and answer their questions. It is a great opportunity for them to get some real world experience to go along with their lessons. Thank you Dr Nelson and Mrs Paleaz!
Toby L. Nelson is an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Director of Student Engagement and STEM Initiatives in the College of Arts and Sciences at Oklahoma State University. Professor Nelson’s research program covers the design and synthesis of organic semiconductors, polymer chemistry, green chemistry, mechanochemistry, organic electronics, biosensors, bioelectronics and the development of bioinspired materials based on the natural pigment, Melanin. His current research focuses on the design and synthesis of organic materials via green methods such as green solvent usage, C-H functionalization and solvent-free techniques like high-speed ball-milled reactions.
He holds a B.S. in Chemistry from Francis Marion University and Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry from the University of South Carolina. Dr. Nelson was also a UNCF-Merck Postdoctoral Fellow in organic materials at Carnegie Mellon University under the advisement of Professor Richard D. McCullough (now President of Florida State University).
