Lisa Gallagher Schromm

Arizona STEM Ecosystem Lead

Lisa Gallagher Schromm has bounced between informal and formal education but has remained focused on providing engaging STEM experiences for youth in the state. In her new role at the SciTech Institute, Lisa is responsible for taking that self-driven initiative and providing it to a broader audience as the STEM Ecosystem Lead in Arizona. Her background in museology incorporated research and evaluation with her interests in community identity. Her experience as a classroom teacher transformed her understanding of constructivist pedagogy. She is now completing doctorate research in using communities of practice to increase STEM capital in the state through the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College at Arizona State University. Lisa is a hobbyist welder and SPSS enthusiast.

Reach out to her to explore STEM programs, network with STEM professionals, aid in STEM initiatives, and ultimately amplify the community voice during policy making.
