Kelli List Wells and special guests Stacy Klein-Gardner, Malinda Zarske, Alison Baranowski, and Bruce Wellman, P12 Committee members for American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) in this interactive LIVE Webinar hosted by NBC New Learn.
What to expect:
The American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) P12 experts will explore three free resources that will infuse engineering into your classroom from Preschool through 12th grade.
This interactive session is sure to leave you with new ideas in engineering education!
Stacy Klein-Gardner’s career focuses on K-12 science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education, particularly as it relates to increasing interest in and participation by females. Stacy Klein-Gardner received a BSE in biomedical and electrical engineering from Duke University in 1991. She then earned her M.S. from Drexel University in 1993 and her Ph.D. in biomedical engineering from Vanderbilt University in 1996. She serves as an Adjoint Professor of the Practice of Biomedical Engineering at Vanderbilt University. She has taught at Vanderbilt from 1999-2008 and at the high school level full or part time since 1996. Dr. Klein-Gardner serves as the chair of the American Society for Engineering Education Board of Director’s Committee on P12 Engineering Education and was elected a Fellow of the society in 2018.
Malinda Zarske teaches undergraduate product design and core courses through Engineering Plus as well as STEM education courses for pre-service teachers through the CU Teach Engineering program. Her primary research interests include the impacts of project-based service-learning on student identity – especially women and nontraditional demographic groups in engineering – as well as pathways and retention to and through K-12 and undergraduate engineering, teacher education, and curriculum development. She is passionate about hands-on engineering design for every student, at every age level. She is also on the leadership team for the TeachEngineering Digital Library.
Alison Baranowski is a 4th grade teacher and teacher-in-charge at Havre de Grace Elementary School in Maryland. She serves as a member-at-large on the ASEE Committee for P12 Engineering Education. Baranowski completed her PBC in integrated STEM instructional leadership (preK-6) in 2016. She has worked in Harford County Public Schools for 11 years and currently teaches at Havre de Grace Elementary School. Alison is a graduate of Towson University. She won the Rising Star Award from the Northeast Maryland Technology Council in 2017.
Bruce Wellman is a high school chemistry and engineering teacher in the Olathe Public Schools’ Engineering Academy at Olathe Northwest High School and is a Co-Principal Investigator on the “Building Informed Designers” Project (NSF DR K-12 Program). He served as a 2011 Teaching Ambassador Fellow at the U.S. Department of Education, was recipient of the 2009 Presidential Award for Excellence in Math and Science Teaching, was a 2017 NSTA/NCTM National STEM Teacher Ambassador, and is currently a member of the Federal STEM Education Advisory Panel.
