Bravo Social Studies teacher aims to help students emotionally process their COVID experiences

Greater LA: LA history teacher aims to help students emotionally process their COVID experiences
Hosted by Steve Chiotakis Aug. 16, 2021


After more than a year guiding students on Zoom school, teachers are now responsible for enforcing mask rules, keeping kids socially distanced, and making up for lost learning. 

David Rodriguez teaches ethnic studies and U.S. history at Bravo Medical Magnet High School between Boyle Heights and Lincoln Heights. He’s nervous to be back, but prefers it over looking at a bunch of black boxes on a screen for another semester.

“It scares me, the situation that we're in,” he says. “But I tell the students: As long as we follow our path, do what we need to do, wear the masks, social distance, wash your hands, we should be okay.”

Bravo Student Researcher helps USC Viterbi chemical engineers impact Global Warming

Shaama Sharada calls carbon dioxide — the worst offender of global warming — a very stable, “very happy molecule.”

She aims to change that.  Recently published in the Journal of Physical Chemistry A, Sharada and a team of researchers at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering seek to break CO2 apart and convert the greenhouse gas into useful materials like fuels or consumer products ranging from pharmaceuticals to polymers.


The research team from the Mork Family Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science was led by third year Ph.D. student Kareesa Kron, supervised by Sharada, a WISE Gabilan Assistant Professor. The work was co-authored by Samantha J. Gomez from Francisco Bravo Medical Magnet High School, who has been part of the USC Young Researchers Program, allowing high school students from underrepresented areas to take part in STEM research.
