Meet the Team
Einstein Fellow - Shelly Hynes
Shelly Hynes is the US Science Education Week Leader.
Before being named a 2011 – 2012 Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellow, Shelly F. Hynes taught Astronomy and Physics at the Louisiana School for Math, Science and the Arts (LSMSA) in Natchitoches, LA for 10 years. She received her B.S. in Physics from Northwestern State University and a M.S. in Physics with a minor in Chemical Engineering from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. At LSMSA she is most passionate about individual mentorship of students via science research. Shelly sponsors the Regional, State and Intel International Science and Engineering Fair competitions at LSMSA and prepares students for the Siemens Competition and Intel Science Talent Search. In 2006 her research student was named an Intel Science Talent Search Finalist and for her mentorship, Mrs. Hynes received the honor of having asteroid 1998 HC96 renamed to 22586 Shellyhynes. As an Einstein Fellow Shelly coordinates the US component of the Joint Science Education Project, a student field expedition to Greenland. She recently finished an expedition to Antarctica where she held webcasts with students from Louisiana.

Where are They?
What are they Doing?
This year's work builds on past expeditions and is supported by the National Science Foundation. The project was developed through cooperation with the U.S.-Denmark-Greenland Joint Committee, which was established in 2004 to broaden and deepen cooperation among the United States, the Kingdom of Denmark, and Greenland.
The program has two components.
