Bob Kaplan, Professor, Biology

Kaplan structured and designed the Biology Outreach Program sixteen years ago. The program is supported by a grant from the Rose Tucker Trust and provides Reed students the opportunity to teach science to children at Title I local public schools. Biology Outreach currently serves 16 classrooms at 5 schools and over 475 students. Kaplan sees Reedies’ participation in the program as “a natural synergy, given Reedies’ talents and capacities.” He explains that many Reedies formerly involved with Biology Outreach have gone on to model their own similar programs and expresses admiration that “Reedies have so far demonstrated an unbelievable passion for wanting to access students in need.”
