“On October 30 our Working Group on Educational Policy at the Cook Center held a lunch seminar that featured Romanieo Golphin Jr., the 6 year old chemistry whiz, with his parents, Romanieo Golphin Sr. and Cheri Philip, discussing the curriculum that they had developed for him.

They passionately believe, as do I, that, although Romanieo is an extraordinary child, the curriculum they have designed for him will have a tremendous positive impact for STEM education for all children … I am very excited about the possibilities for all students from the program of study [they] have developed for Romanieo.”
