Invigorating with special relativity
Shaun taught physics and mathematics to students ages 12 to 18, in addition to cultural lessons about the United States and its education system. For the science-track students, Shaun gave university-level lectures on particle physics and special relativity. He describes the experience as formative and eye-opening. "It's humbling to remember that your default environment, lifestyle, and even language are not universal." Shaun also had the opportunity to accompany his physics class on their tour of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, which was a longtime dream of his. "Teaching is invigorating, and reinforced my interest in education and curricular development."
