DaNel Hogan has been a professional STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) educator for about 20 years. She started her career as a middle and high school physics teacher and then served two years as an Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellow with the U.S. Department of Energy. She is currently working as the Director of The STEMAZing Project for the Pima County School Superintendent’s Office in Tucson, Arizona where she teaches teachers how to better engage students to make sense of the world using 3-dimensional science instruction. DaNel finds her creativity and imagination focused on #STEMontheCheap hacks – using inexpensive materials to teach STEM lessons. From programs serving early childhood educators to systemic, district-wide teacher leader programs and multi- and single-day professional development opportunities for teachers, DaNel enjoys helping teachers cultivate STEM minds and particularly enjoys working with STAR Fellows as they start their teaching careers.
