The Brain Trust Marc Tetel studied different factors, such as transporta- tion, water use, and building materials. The project culminated in a presentation to the Wellesley town officials last fall. She also points to Neuroscience professor, Marc Tetel, who runs STEM (Science, Tech - nology, Engineering, Math) tutoring for METCO students from Wellesley Public Schools. As part of this program, fourth and fifth graders receive tutoring from Wellesley College students in mathematics and have the opportunity to tour other science pro- grams on campus. President Bottomly concluded her inter- view in welcoming residents to take advantage of the college: to run on the college paths; visit Davis, one of the nation's finest academic art museums; attend the public stargazing nights at Whitlin Observatory; and visit the Wellesley Botanical Gardens. In fact, all the professors encouraged further participation with the towns' residents. The towns of Wellesley and Weston have strong suburban communities and culture, but they also have an amazing diversity that the four colleges provide. Look for profiles of more members of Wellesley and Weston's "Brain Trust" in future issues of WellesleyWeston Magazine. 88 WellesleyWeston Magazine | fall 2012 RICHARD HOWA RD
