Johannes Strobel, PhD, directs SRI’s STEM & CS Education program, in which he engages in design, entrepreneurship, research and evaluation in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) & CS (computer science) education. With a background in philosophy, religious studies, information science and learning technologies, he engages in “Humanistic STEM Education,” a STEM education approach focused on the holistic development of human beings and their communities. As a “learning engineer,” Strobel works to address questions of equity, diversity, and inclusion, making STEM education accessible and closing the opportunities gap. Before joining SRI in 2021, Strobel was full professor of information science & learning technologies, leading a maker space initiative. Strobel’s research focuses on STEM as an innovation in education ranging from preK to higher education and workplace culture; making and 3D printing; online professional development of teachers; and defiance, worldviews, empathy and care in engineering. Strobel has been principal investigator (PI), co-PI, and key personnel of research and development grants totaling over $36,000,000 in the United States and Canada. Funding sponsors of grants have included: NSF, U.S. Department of Education, DARPA, FQRSC (Provincial Funding, Quebec), SSHRC (Canadian Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council) and several private and corporate foundations. Strobel has published 169 papers in journals, proceedings, and book chapters, and has coedited five books (many with graduate/undergraduate students). Strobel is founding editor of the Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research (J-PEER) and has served on several boards of engineering education, learning sciences, and educational technology journals in the United States and internationally. He received the 2018 Science Educator of the Year Award from the Academy of Science – St. Louis and the 2018 STEM Excellence Award from the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). He has been a regular visiting professor at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (2008/2012/2018) and was selected as the 2019 Forrest Visiting Fellow at the Institute of Advanced Studies, University of Western Australia, Perth, Australia. Strobel has disseminated his research to a variety of audiences. For example, he was the lead designer of Hands-on Standards STEM in Action™—an internationally available set of learning modules for preK-5th grade published by hand2mind®. The U.S. version is used in 200,000 classrooms reaching approximately 6,000,000 students. The international version has been used in 35 countries and was selected as a finalist for two international education awards.
