A self-described "recovering astrophysicist" from Kentucky, Barnett caught the teaching bug when he was tapped to teach a lesson about the moon to "immensely inquisitive fifth-graders" while he was working on his PhD in astrophysics."[Professor Barnett] loves educating people on how to teach science. A self-proclaimed technical geek, he consistently encourages his students to find ways to put new technologies in the hands of their students, including some that I have incorporated in my high school classroom," said former student Andrew Trossello who now teaches chemistry and biology at a Boston high school.
