Meet the Team


The members of the Center for Engineering Education and Outreach (CEEO) are dedicated toward improving engineering education in the classroom; from Kindergarten to college. The CEEO has research programs aimed at understanding how kids and adults learn engineering. This research then informs the development of various educational tools. The CEEO collaborates with a number of companies to bring these tools into the classroom and then our outreach arm works with teachers around the world to further refine these tools and to support the teacher-user community.
Aaron Johnson
Postdoctoral Research Associate 

Aaron joined the CEEO in October 2014 after receiving his Ph.D. in Aeronautics and Astronautics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His research interests include how informal education can reinforce learning in formal education environments, culturally-contextualized engineering education, responsive teaching in engineering, and classes involving multidisciplinary team-based peer learning.

Marya Schnedeker
Research Assistant 

Marya co-manages the CEEO maker space and is working with the New York Hall of Science to support a university in Indonesia in creating STEM learning spaces and content. She enjoys exploring space design, equipment, curriculum and online communities for creative  learning environments.
