Dr. Amanda L. Strawhacker, Ph.D.
A STEM Education Researcher and Designer
I hold a Master's and Ph.D. in Child Study and Human Development from Tufts University, where I worked at the DevTech Research Group.
I work at the intersection of Developmental Research, Technology Innovation, and STEAM Education. I have over a decade of experience teaching literacy, computer science, engineering, and life science to K-2nd grade children. I've collaborated to develop and research the ScratchJr programming app, the Early Childhood Makerspace at Tufts University, and most recently, the CRISPEE technology kit for bioengineering education.
