Valerie Logan Hood
Throughout her career, Valerie Logan Hood served as a visionary and active leader in science education. When Valerie and her husband, Dr. Lee Hood, moved to Seattle in 1992, they brought with them a passion and commitment for science education.
When Lee co-founded the Institute for Systems Biology in 2000, he maintained his commitment to education. Valerie’s leadership helped to establish ISB’s commitment to education and a vision that all students should have an opportunity to learn science.
While Valerie has stepped down from leading ISB’s education and outreach programs, she continues to inspire our work. Recognizing her leadership, ISB celebrates her impact by identifying an educator in the community as recipient of the Valerie Logan Leadership in Science Education Award. The 2021 recipient will be announced during the event.
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a teacher in our workshops or a student in our summer programs? Immediately following the event the ISB Education team will be hosting a short 15-minute interactive experiment to put you in the classroom. No materials required. A link to join this event will be shared with all registrants.
Can’t make it on June 17 but still want to support the ISB Education team? This year we had DOUBLE the number of high school students apply for our summer program -- we need more partners to help meet the demand. Help us reach our goal of $15,000 which will allow an AmeriCorps Member to serve with the ISB Education team for one year.
