Curriculum Co-Chair, NLC Louisiana

Bryce Davis is a Charlotte, NC native with a deep passion for chemistry, education, and comedy. Every day he gets the chance to merge these three passions to bring about educational equity by providing equal access to a quality education to students of all backgrounds.

Bryce graduated from North Carolina State University with a B.S. in Biochemistry and a B.A. in Chemistry. After spending some time in industry, he had the unique opportunity to return to his alma mater, South Mecklenburg High School, to teach alongside the very teachers who inspired him to become a scientist. Bryce relocated to New Orleans, LA in 2018 to be closer to family. He is a Chemistry teacher at The New Orleans Charter Science and Mathematics High School. Being an educator has fortified Davis’ belief in education being the “Great Equalizer” as he sees his students building the lives they want and need for themselves.

Bryce has two primary areas of research which he is committed to as an experimental chemist and as an educator. In terms of chemistry, he is interested in using natural toxins and venoms from spiders and snakes to find the mechanism of disease for Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy – a disease which runs in his family. In terms of education, he is interested in the reconstruction of a robust Chemistry curriculum which is relevant to meet the needs of all 21st century learners instead of serving only one demographic of student as the current system provides.
