    Let's get a shout out from our STEM educators out there. If you're involved in the STEM education world please introduce yourself. Tell us how you are involved and maybe where.

    I'll start.

    I'm an assistant professor in physics at Cleveland State University, and I participate in several collaborative STEM education programs with the colleges of education and engineering: CSUTeach (http://www.csuohio.edu/cehs/te/csuteach, developed in concert with UTeach), I am Co-PI on 1 funded (OpSTEM, http://csuw3.csuohio.edu/sciences/dept/mathematics/OpSTEMbrochure.pdf) and 1 pending (IUSE, http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2014/nsf14588/nsf14588.htm) NSF grant, and am currently working (with my colleagues) to create a stand-alone STEM education center.

    My department's culture is also very education-inflected, primarily because of this: http://www.wiley.com/college/sc/halliday. Our SPS chapter does a lot of K-12 outreach activities with local STEM magnet/charter schools (with adult supervision).
