Nobel Prize Winner Goes Back To School
Johns Hopkins Professor Meets with Baltimore Science Teachers

Dr. Peter Agre, the 2003 Nobel Prize winner for Chemistry

Dr. Peter Agre, the 2003 Nobel Laureate for Chemistry, recently met with about 100 of Baltimore City's public school science teachers, saying he respects and honors the important work they do while emphasizing that producing science-literate citizens has never been more important.

Without a sound understanding of science, people---including our elected leaders---make bad decisions about technology, health care and the environment, Agre said.

Speaking at Baltimore's Dunbar High School, where sciences teachers had assembled for a day of professional development, Agre inspired those present with his humble demeanor and heartfelt appreciation for public school teachers. He noted that he had gone to public schools, as has his four children.

"Public school education can be outstanding," Agre said. "And it should be everywhere."
