Sabrina Grossman is Program Director in Science Education at Georgia Tech's Center for Education Integrating Science, Mathematics, and Computing (CEISMC), who focuses on curriculum development, program management, and support of teachers in STEM classrooms. She works on several NSF funded projects including EarSketch where she supports teachers using music composition to engage students in computer programming and AMP-IT-UP where she designs curriculum for engineering integration in the science and math classrooms. Sabrina's role in GoSTEM is as the program director of the PUSH (Pursuing Urban Sustainability at Home) summer camp where she designs curriculum and field experiences for high school students in sustainability. Sustainability is one of Sabrina's passions and she had the opportunity this past year to participate in the FEWs (Food, Energy, Water) Fellowship with Georgia Tech's Serve-Learn-Sustain initiative to further her understanding of sustainability education. She has also been awarded a Living Building Pilot Project grant to support curriculum development in Bio-Inspired Design and Sustainable Development.
Prior to her experience at CEISMC, she was classroom teacher for ten years and taught middle school Earth, Life, Physical, and Environmental Science along with High School Biology and Biomedical Sciences . She also spent time as a magnet coordinator at a magnet school in Indianapolis for Environmental Studies, Problem Based Learning and Technology. It was at this school that she had the opportunity to manage a school greenhouse, garden, and school-wide problem-based learning sustainability curriculum. She was awarded grants from Keep Indianapolis Beautiful and Captain Planet Foundation to transform her school's green spaces through this position. She has been trained through many professional development workshops through Project Lead the Way, Society for the Achievement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science, Center for Disease Control, and Project Learning Tree that have allowed her to grow in her ability to design and present inquiry based lessons about the environment and sustainable living. She attended the College of William and Mary and graduated with a BA in Spanish and Biology. During her undergraduate experience, she spent a semester in Costa Rica studying Tropical Biology and Environmental Science with the Organization of Tropical Studies at Duke University. She then received her Masters in Education from the University of St. Thomas in Houston, Texas
