DaNel Hogan is the Director of The STEMAZing Project for the Office of the Pima County School Superintendent in Tucson, Arizona. Before returning to Tucson, DaNel served as an Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellow at the U.S. Department of Energy in Washington, DC. While in DC, DaNel was involved in national level STEM issues and particularly focused on K-Gray Energy Literacy. Prior to her Einstein Fellowship, DaNel Hogan was a physics teacher for nine years.
In her current role teaching teachers how to best engage PreK-12th grade students using STEM content, DaNel is constantly seeking out #STEMontheCheap hacks and solutions. These hacks involve turning a cell phone into a low powered microscope for seven cents, building a hologram like projector from supplies you would normally recycle and some transparent tape, and hacking $1 solar garden lights for solar and electricity experiments in the classroom. She has also co-developed and oversees various STEMAZing Teacher Leader Programs, which are now systemically changing entire school districts to shift their science instruction to 3-dimensional instruction.
