University of Georgia
Noel Gregg, Ph.D., is a distinguished research professor at the University of Georgia. Gregg directs the NSF Georgia STEM Access Alliance, a virtual learning model for increasing STEM persistence for secondary/postsecondary students with disabilities. Her research focuses on individuals with learning disabilities/ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) and virtual learning.
At the Forum, I can offer factors supporting students with disabilities in virtual environments.
At the Forum, I am looking for virtual environments and persistence in STEM.

University of California, Berkeley
Brian Harvey is teaching professor emeritus of Computer Science at the University of California, Berkeley. A former high school teacher, he co-develops the Snap! visual programming language and the "Beauty and Joy of Computing" curriculum, which is taught to 100 New York City public high school teachers.
At the Forum, I can offer to show how visual metaphors can make otherwise hard computer science ideas accessible.
At the Forum, I am looking for ways to make non-hands-on parts of the curriculum more engaging.
University of Washington
Leslie Rupert Herrenkohl, Ph.D., is co-director of the 3DL Partnership and professor in the Learning Sciences and Human Development Program at the University of Washington. She collaborates with practitioners to create STEM environments that are conceptually rich, and personally and culturally meaningful.
At the Forum, I can offer programming and research on underrepresented youth in STEM.
At the Forum, I am looking for opportunities to collaborate with others to address the needs of students who are underrepresented in STEM.
