O’Dowd Chemistry Teacher’s Book has Cameo in “Spider-Man: Homecoming”

The O’Dowd chemistry textbook “Living Chemistry,” co-written by faculty member Jan Coonrod, has a cameo appearance in the summer blockbuster release “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” Coonrod isn’t quite sure how the book was selected – perhaps it was the colorful cover – but is excited by the turn of events.

And, she thinks it’s really cool that the movie focuses on Spider-Man’s teenage experience. “Usually these movies have a doomsday scenario, but this one is about him struggling to come to grips with his gift,” she said.

You can catch a glimpse of the book in this trailer (at the 9:33 mark)
