Lake Middle School’s Brian Eberhardt named Fox 9 Super Science Teacher

Brian Eberhardt, sixth grade science teacher at Lake Middle School, received Fox 9’s Super Science Teacher Award, which recognizes outstanding STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) educators in the Twin Cities metro and surrounding communities. Hundreds of nominations were received, and the award’s judges selected nine winners who use science, technology, engineering, and math within the classroom to inspire their students.

As a Fox 9 Super Science Teacher, Eberhardt will receive $900 for his classroom from Royal Credit Union and the opportunity to present his favorite classroom activity or demonstration at the Science Museum of Minnesota on Nov. 15 as part of Fox 9’s Girls and Science Event.

“I am humbled by the staff member who nominated me and by Fox 9 for selecting me,” said Eberhardt. “I love teaching science and I am glad that what I am doing in the classroom is having a positive impact on my students.”

For his demonstration at the Girls and Science event, students will participate in a simulation of a water molecule traveling through the water cycle. They will create a water cycle bracelet that contains different colored beads representing the different places the water molecule visits throughout its journey.
