Experience or expertise/projects of note:

Holds a Master of Library & Information Science, a Bachelor of Arts in History – has worked/continues to work on the FieldScope, a networked field studies platform for various participatory science projects that has also been used to develop educational supports, OpenSciEd Middle School, which provides open-source science units for middle school teachers, and STeLLA Online, which focuses on providing a wider group of teachers access to the proven STeLLA® professional development program in an online environment.

Reasons I’m excited about this project:

I love that this project focuses on making a positive impact on the world by helping students to connect the effects of climate change to their local contexts, allowing for better understanding of the vital need for both societal and local change. I hope this unit inspires students to help enact positive changes as they grow in the world.
