4-H Science Engineering & Technology (SET) Agent, Department of 4-H Youth Development
New Brunswick, NJ
My passion is to help ocean and environmental scientists bring their research findings to broader audiences that extend beyond the walls of the university. One of my main objectives is to identify effective education practices and programs that link scientists and educators both formal and informal in mutually productive partnerships. I do this in two ways — by acting as a facilitator building institutional connections to informal learning institutions including aquariums zoos and science centers and by acting as a developer and implementer of high quality ocean science education programs and products. I work collaboratively to design professional development programs for K-12 and informal educators as well as develop educative curricular materials.
