Dr. Katherine S. Ziemer is an Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts. She has been involved in many forms of K-12 outreach since 1990, including DuPont’s “Fun with Science” Tour during her 7 years of industrial experience. She has worked extensively with teachers from the Boston Public Schools and Boston area schools to develop a middle school engineering curriculum, and to create various outreach activities both in the K-12 classrooms and in general public forums.
She is currently working with a team of AIChE members to build a web site that will provide best practice information to AIChE members interested in K-12 outreach, and will also connect volunteers with outreach opportunities in their local areas.
