Gallaudet University biology professor Dr. Caroline Solomon has been selected as a speaker during the upcoming March for Science on April 22, 2017 in the nation’s capital. Dr. Solomon will speak on the main stage during the rally beginning at 10 a.m.
Co-hosted with the Earth Day Network, the March for Science serves as a “call for politicians to implement science-based policies, as well as a public celebration of science and the enormous public service it provides in our democracy, our economy, and our daily lives” according to information on its website.
Dr. Solomon’s remarks will focus on major contributions deaf and hard of hearing people have made to science and how diverse perspectives are important for science.
Dr. Solomon recently received the Ramón Margalef Award for Excellence in Education by the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography. The award, honoring excellence in teaching and mentoring in the fields of limnology and oceanography, recognized Solomon for her extraordinary accomplishments in bringing the deaf and hearing worlds in science together, coupled with her exceptional skill as a mentor, educator, and leader to inspire all.
Dr. Solomon was also featured by National Public Radio in its “50 Great Teachers” story series in 2015. The story, entitled “Biology Professor’s Calling: Teach Deaf Students They Can Do Anything”, chronicles Dr. Solomon in the classroom, out on the Anacostia River during her research projects, and touches on her teaching style and how she inspires her students.
