A Forsyth Central High School educator and lifetime Cumming resident recently participated in a science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) research program hosted by engineering firm Siemens.

Forsyth County News reports that Jessica Faubel, a science teacher at Forsyth Central, was invited to join the prestigious Siemens Teachers as Researchers (STARs) Academy at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennesee. Only 40 educators across the country were selected.

The Oak Ridge National Laboratory was an integral part of the Manhattan Project, the United States' ultimately successful attempt to create an atomic bomb during World War Two.

With her STARs colleagues, Faubel worked with research scientists to examine ways that magnetic fields can make plastic deformations in metals more flexible and workable. Their experiments lasted from June 8 - 20.

Siemens hopes that Faubel and her new STARs contemporaries can discover a low-budget, instruction-friendly method of replicating the experiment in the classroom.
