Register for our November Webinar: Publishing Our Passion: The Story Behind the Publication of Student-led Science Research

Posted: Nov. 10, 2021

Join us on Tuesday, November 23rd at 1pm ET for a FREE one-hour webinar.

Session Description: A research team including Dr. Chris Schaben recently published in the Science Educator journal. During this webinar Dr. Schaben will discuss the process of moving from gathering research to publication through the story of his recent publication in the Science Educator. Thus, he will be building on Dr. Robert Thai’s webinar: Sharing What You Know: How to Publish Your Research in the Science Educator (Oct. 2021, NSELA Webinar). Dr. Schaben will provide a behind the scenes tour of the published study, which is about his passion for understanding student opportunities to complete science research. He will reveal lessons learned about publishing as a non-university-based leader in science education.

Speaker: Dr. Chris Schaben, Science Supervisor, Omaha Public Schools & Vice President, Nebraska Junior Academy of Science, 402.210.9655, [email protected]

Dr. Chris Schaben is the science supervisor for Omaha Public Schools (OPS) and is a passionate science/STEM education leader. His efforts have led to two, OPS student-generated experiments flying aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour, STS-134 in the initial Student Spaceflight Experiments Program. Dr. Schaben applied the lessons learned from this experience to create a Near-Space Students’ Experiments Program in OPS with over 90 high altitude balloon launches directly from OPS schools. He hosted the national Stratospheric Ballooning Association Annual Meeting in 2018 and the International SpaceRush360: The Frontier for Everyone conference in 2021. Dr. Schaben is a past president of both the Nebraska Academy of Science and the Metropolitan Science and Engineering Fair. He was a founding member and Executive Committee Chair for the Omaha STEM Ecosystem. Dr. Schaben is also Vice President and Co-founder of the Nebraska Junior Academy of Science. Dr. Schaben has served as PI on several grant efforts, has authored multiple science education journal articles, was promoted to Fellow of AAAS in 2017, and is the 2018 National Outstanding Leadership in Science Education awardee from the National Science Education Leadership Association.
