Douglas Koshland knew that BioEYES was the “real deal” when he heard about it from an unexpected source. Having worked alongside BioEYES founder and Carnegie staff scientist Steve Farber at Carnegie’s Department of Embryology, Doug had heard about this hands-on science education program and the impact it was making on the lives of underserved students throughout Baltimore. Yet it was a conversation with a local teacher that prompted Doug to get involved. This first-grade teacher, who worked in a public school serving some of the most underprivileged students in Baltimore, heard about BioEYES through her students, whose siblings in 4th and 5th grades were participating in BioEYES during the day and sharing what they learned with their families each night. With two kids of his own, Doug knew that it requires something truly special to elicit such excitement from young children. After that, he began to philanthropically support the program, and has since been impressed by how they use scientific methodology to assess BioEYES strengths. Doug recognizes the immediate impact that comes from fostering an enthusiasm for science in students and training teachers to conduct and develop engaging scientific curricula; BioEYES will be the first step for many on the path to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers. Just as important, though, is how BioEYES cultivates a life-long love of science for many others—students who will one day shape society as science-literate politicians, educators, and voters. Although Doug left Carnegie Science in 2010, he remains invested in BioEYES as a donor and advisory committee member. “It’s money well spent because it’s work done well,” he explained. “Carnegie hires amazing people like Steve that you’d want to support.” Doug cites programs like the Capital Science Evening lectures and the Carnegie Academy for Science Education (CASE)’s First Light as examples of how Carnegie makes an amazing impact beyond the work being done in laboratories. “If you want to be involved with people who are doing something good, keep an eye on Carnegie and you’ll discover something innovative and inspiring to support.”  (Left) BioEYES cofounder Steve Farber talks to students about the development of zebrafish at the 2018 USA Science & Engineering Festival in Washington, D.C.

Bush administration and a Carnegie trustee from 2009 until 2013, Samuel Bodman died at the age of 79 after a lengthy illness on September 7, 2018, in El Paso, Texas. Before serving as Energy Secretary, Bodman served as Deputy Secretary of the Treasury and Deputy Secretary of Commerce. Born in Chicago in 1938, Bodman went on to receive a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Cornell in 1961 and a Ph.D. from MIT in 1965. He then taught at MIT until 1970 and worked at a venture capital firm, later joining Fidelity Investments. In 1987 he was appointed Chairman and CEO of a specialty chemical company, Cabot Corporation. He was a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering. Bodman joined the Carnegie board in 2009 and, with his background in engineering and finance, served as a valuable member of the Budget and Operations and Finance Committees. Bodman is survived by his wife Diane Bodman, three children, two stepchildren, and numerous grandchildren.  Carnegie Trustee Emeritus Samuel Bodman Dies T rustee N ews The Real Deal
