Nancy McIntyre, a ninth-grade biology teacher at Chaminade College Preparatory School in West Hills, earned the 2006 Toshiba/Nations Science Teachers Association ExploraVision Inspiration Award, Toshiba America Inc. announced last week. She was one of five teachers in North America honored for her longtime dedication to and involvement with ExploraVision. The ExploraVision program requires students to research scientific principles and current technologies, then use that research to design technological breakthroughs that could exist in 20 years. Since the program’s inception 14 years ago, more than 210,000 students have submitted entries. Instructing her students that each project should somehow “improve the quality of life for a living organism,” McIntyre incorporates ExploraVision as an integral part of her biology curriculum. After the recent California wildfires, three of her students came up with the idea of creating a special protective suit for firefighters that used a cooling system similar to that used in space suits. A local engineering firm expressed interest in creating a prototype. McIntyre will go to Washington, D.C., to receive the Inspiration Award at the 2006 ExploraVision weekend, June 7-11.
