Chris Wandell is originally from Central New York State, where he began studying for a career in field research. After a surprise summer teaching at his local nature center, he fell in love with the idea of teaching in a non-traditional environment.
He graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Conservation Biology before beginning his career by roaming the United States, teaching youth everywhere from Minnesota, to Washington, to Tennessee. During that process, Chris attended graduate school to acquire his Master’s in Education focusing on the natural sciences and teacher education.
Chris spends both his personal and professional time working to help students not only access STEM education, but fall in love with learning.
