Oregon Episcopal School, Portland, Oregon (when in NITARP)
Ms. Hemphill was in one of the teams as part of Spitzer Space Telescope Research Program for Teachers and Students.
Two sets of students from Chemistry classes wrote proposals for using a FLIR thermal imaging camera for use in their class projects. Their proposals were approved, and the students have prepared the chemical mixtures to be used for thermal imaging.
Mrs. Hemphill and her student spent a day at school reviewing materials from the July Spitzer workshop. Mrs. Hemphill submitted a press release about the July workshop to two newspapers as well as to the school online news column. The information was published on in one newspaper and in the school column.
