University of Dayton
Margaret Pinnell is an associate dean in the School of Engineering at the University of Dayton. She has been involved in K-12 STEM outreach and education since 2005. Pinnell is currently the principal investigator for an NSF Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) Program. She also served as an administrative fellow for a regional STEM Center.
At the Forum, I can offer experience from two RET programs and work with a STEM Center.
At the Forum, I am looking for learning how I can better contribute to K-12 STEM in my role in higher education.
University of Washington
Zoran Popovic is a professor at University of Washington and founder of Enlearn. His laboratory created the scientific-discovery game Foldit, and conducted Algebra challenges in Washington, Minnesota and Norway with 96% of children even in elementary school learning key algebra concepts in 1.5 hours.
At the Forum, I can offer a presentation of STEM engagement at the state and national level on math and science.
At the Forum, I am looking for information on new STEM engagement methods.
California State University, San Marcos
Edward Price is an associate professor in Physics at California State University, San Marcos, with a Ph.D. in Physics from the University of California, San Diego. His research interests include the impact of new curricula and classroom technology, and programs for STEM outreach and retention.
At the Forum, I can offer expertise with outreach to and retention of underrepresented minorities in STEM.
At the Forum, I am looking for national momentum around access in STEM education.
University of Colorado
Alexander Repenning is the director of the Scalable Game Design project at the University of Colorado, bringing computer science education to schools through game design and STEM simulation authoring. He created the AgentSheets /AgentCubes computational thinking tools and offers workshops in the U.S., Mexico and Europe.
At the Forum, I can offer to show how to compute computational thinking.
At the Forum, I am looking for people interested in computational thinking in game design and STEM simulation creation.
University Corporation for Atmospheric Research
John Ristvey is currently the director of the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research Center for Science Education (UCAR SciEd) under the UCAR Community Programs. In this role, he is responsible for the leadership and day-to-day operation of UCAR SciEd.
