Jennifer Morford: Science in Between

Directed by Andrew Bilindabagabo.

As an undergraduate student, Jennifer Morford fell in love with working in the lab and expanding and applying the understanding of chemistry to the environment. As a professor of chemistry at Franklin & Marshall College, Morford fell in love again— this time with students' joy and ownership of their newfound knowledge.

"When you see a student whose eyes open a little wider and they get it... that lightbulb comes on... If I've contributed to their learning, then I feel like that would be an incredible legacy," she said.
