A Lesson In Photonics & Optics

Paul Conrow has been teaching science at East High School for 15 years. On Wednesday, March 9th, he won the Rochester Museum & Science Center’s STEM Award for Secondary Level educators.

But the icing on the cake happened as Conrow and his family were leaving the Strathallan Hotel, walking out the door to go home. A former student, George (pictured here) was standing in the lobby. He recognized Paul, flashed a big smile, and said “Mr. Conrow…my favorite science teacher ever.”

As Liz Conrow, Paul’s wife said, “The award recognition was truly an honor… but knowing Paul made a profound difference in a student’s life 12 years ago… that is priceless. The perfect ending to a really special night.

See what happens in the attached video when a crazy reporter visits Paul and his colleague, Logan Newman at East.
