Teaching a class of exceptional high school research students is a unique experience. A successful teacher is there to guide, not control, their students’ scientific creativity. We asked John Trimble, a teacher at Corona del Sol High School in Arizona for some insight on how he navigates the world of teaching high-achieving science students. Trimble is a helpful resource for his students, many of whom have entered and competed in the Intel Science Talent Search (Intel STS).
