This award was established to honor doctoral students who excel in teaching physics in the Introductory Physics Laboratories at Duke and is accompanied by a certificate together with $1,000. This award is presented to an individual based on the impact made in the way undergraduate students learn in the laboratory and the course evaluations of the undergraduate students taught by the nominee.
