Those Who Can Do, Teach

Those Who Can Do, Teach

July 15, 2017

Anna Michel, an assistant scientist at WHOI, received the 2017 Arnold B. Arons Award from Vice President for Academic Programs and Dean Jim Yoder at the MIT-WHOI Joint Program graduation reception in June. The award celebrates excellence in teaching, advising, and mentoring in honor of Dr. Arnold Arons, who helped build the graduate program. Michel is a worthy recipient. Among her contributions, she created the GOES (Girls in Ocean and Engineering) Institute, which since 2016 helps to inspire young girls to pursue careers in engineering through a weeklong, hands-on program of activities led by Michel and other WHOI scientists.
