The winners of the 2013 Physical Sciences Teaching Prize are Jonathan Raybin, Chemistry; Gustav Larsson, Computer Science; and Michael Laskin, Physics. 

Each year, the Physical Sciences Collegiate Division and the Graduate Division of Physical Sciences jointly award the prize to graduate students in recognition of exceptional teaching in undergraduate physical science classes. The award consists of a $750 prize and a certificate of recognition.

“This year the students enrolled in physical science courses nominated 33 graduate students who have excelled in teaching undergraduate courses,” said Michael Stein, Master of the Physical Sciences Collegiate Division.

“All of the graduate students nominated have shown tremendous energy in the classroom and a willingness to devote an extra effort in interacting with students. We congratulate them for their outstanding efforts.”
