I have a PhD in Science Education and have researched both formal and informal science education constructs with a primary focus on learning in informal settings, teacher professional development, and inquiry-based science. I have taught internationally, including teaching STEM to gifted/talented high school students in Poland through a project with the EU. I have presented nationally and internationally on topics of assessment and evaluation in informal science education, particularly around evaluation capacity building. I have published in the Journal of Museum Education on this topic and conducted many keynote presentations and webinars on it as well. I have conducted both qualitative and quantitative studies and am particularly interested in new methods of data collection that integrate seamlessly into the informal learning setting. While I work with informal science education broadly, because of my recent professional experience, I have been focusing more on zoos and aquariums and their increased need to demonstrate impact, more so under the lens of conservation learning outcomes. I believe in collaborations and serve as a coordinator for the strand on learning science in informal settings for the National Association for Research in Science Teaching as well as on the committee for informal science for the National Science Teachers Association. My current position is Senior Research Associate with PEER Associates. We work with education organizations around program evaluation, education research, and organizational development. We focus on entities that have an environmental or sustainability focus. We have worked with clients ranging from school districts to nature centers to federal agencies. My focus within PEER hones in on zoos, aquariums, and museums though across our company we have staff with expertise and focus in additional areas.

WaTE, Wood and Technology Education

I am LOOKING FOR expertise
WaTE is Wood and Technology Education, is the ability to bend, mold and shape small scale craft woods, lathe strips, hobby woods into hundreds of structural components and combine them with electronics to make wooden robotics. Making robotic structures from everyday parts (Craft woods) and combining them with wheels, servos, tanks tracks and more moving parts can allow more schools to enter the STEM race. I can teach the structure I need help with the electronics and coding. Would need to test this idea on several STEM programs if possible.

Formal education site, digital transmedia projects
The Hispanic Information and Telecommunications Network (HITN) has a project focusing on, and called, “Amplifying the Voices of Urban Youth for Real World Action.” Our current project, in partnership with the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Bureau of Youth and Diversion Initiatives, teaches principles of digital storytelling in combination with background information to promote conversations about cyberbullying, our first themed focus for the project. We can provide expertise in transmedia approaches to educational programs as well as assistance with the development of digital media literacy.

Our current projects help youth give voice to the issues and interests that impact the lives of young people within communities. We are also seeing that caregivers, youth leaders, teachers, program administrators, need tools to share stories as well. The “ Amplifying Voices” project is designed so that it can also be used to amplify the stories related to causes and concerns such as cyber security and “cyber literacy awareness” from within the cyber security industry and with various consumer stakeholders. The DIYdoc app and the creation of wrap-around facilitation guides can become part of “cyber security education” initiative. I would be interested in discussing potential partnership opportunities. Use the link below to view the current application of DIYdoc; then be in touch if you have ideas around which some collaborations might be pursued.

It would would be great to collaborate and/or provide technical assistance or contracted services in the areas of child development, learning, and children's digital media environments.

The creator of the DIYdoc digital storytelling developer and partner, John Carlin, would be extremely interested in collaborations and corporate sponsorships (See

Mac leads and provides research design and statistical analysis expertise to projects that study science learning across contexts. His work aims to improve the internal validity and evidence gathered to support inferences drawn from research and evaluation projects. His work includes investigating pathways and barriers to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers, analyzing the effectiveness of particular learning experiences aimed at computational thinking, and co-leading the work of the Activation Lab. Prior to coming to the Lawrence Hall of Science, Mac evaluated several formal and informal educational initiatives, including elementary engineering programs, pre-algebra curriculum and professional development of history teachers. He taught physics to high school students for several years after earning a bachelor's degree in engineering physics from Santa Clara University. Mac received his doctorate in educational research, measurement, and evaluation from Boston College.
