This is the 13th consecutive time that Barry has received this honor, which is based on editorial content and overall communications effectiveness and excellence. Her winning entry, the CAMP Annual Report Newsletter 2006-2007, faired extremely well in the exceptionally intense competition. There were close to 4,500 entries in the competition and approximately 1,400 awards of excellence were distributed in 110 subcategories of 11 major areas.
Barry, an avid writer, coauthored four published books since 2007. She wrote three creative science books with her collaborator Professor Hideyuki Kanematsu of Japan to complement their national award winning program in creative education.
Her fourth book, titled Plan, Develop, Display, Present Science Projects, was coauthored with Robert W. Smith and published in 2008. In addition Barry has more than 100 other professional publications.
This past August she coauthored an article, Creative Space Exploration Project for Engineering Design, with Professor Kanematsu. Their paper is included in the International Session Proceedings of the 2008 Annual Conference for the Japanese Society of Engineering Education (JSEE) held in Kobe, Japan. It describes and compares how students in the United States and Japan creatively designed, built, and tested greenhouses for growing plants on the Moon.
