Mary McCormick is a graduate student at Tufts University. She is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in education, focusing on mathematics, science, technology, and engineering education. She received a B.S. from University of Massachusetts, Lowell, in civil engineering, and an M.S. from Tufts University in civil engineering. Her current research involves seeing the engineering thinking and doing in children.
Morgan Hynes is a Research Assistant Professor in the Tufts University Education Department and Education Research Program Director for the Tufts Center of Engineering Education and Outreach. Hynes received his B.S. in mechanical engineering in 2001 and his Ph.D. in engineering education in 2009 (both degrees at Tufts University). In his current positions, Hynes serves as PI and Co-PI on a number of funded research projects investigating engineering education in the K-12 and college settings. He is particularly interested in how students and teachers engage in and reflect upon the engineering design process. His research includes investigating how teachers conceptualize and then teach engineering through in-depth case study analysis. Hynes also spends time working at the Sarah Greenwood K-8 school (a Boston Public School), assisting teachers in implementing engineering curriculum in grades 3-8.
