Jessica Swenson is a post doctoral research fellow at the University of Michigan. She received her doctorate and masters from Tufts University in mechanical engineering and STEM education. Her current research involves examining different types of homework problems in undergraduate engineering science courses, flexible classrooms, active learning, responsive teaching, and novice elementary engineering teacher development.
Kristen Wendell is Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Adjunct Associate Professor of Education at Tufts University. Her research efforts at at the Center for Engineering Education and Outreach focus on supporting discourse and design practices during K-12, teacher education, and college-level engineering learning experiences, and increasing access to engineering in the elementary school experience, especially in under-resourced schools. In 2016 she was a recipient of the U.S. Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE). https://engineering.tufts.edu/me/people/faculty/kristen-bethke-wendell
