Dr. Edward Cohen

Assistant Director, CMSCE

Dr. Edward Cohen is the Assistant Director at CMSCE. He has 18 years of experience in innovative pedagogy in K-16 education. His experience has been in designing, implementing, and leading data-driven curriculum as a teacher, professor, Middle School Vice Principal/Supervisor of Instruction, District K-12 Science Supervisor, and District STEAM Specialist across multiple districts. Eddie started his career as a middle school science teacher where he became interested in pedagogy for makerspaces and teaching climate change. During a Fulbright scholarship in Japan following the 2011 Tsunami, the link between climate change and the need for engineered solutions to environmental problems became extremely apparent. Eddie has designed and presented an original climate change curriculum from his missions aboard the US premier research drill ship, the JOIDES Resolution, at the National Science Teachers Association, the National Academy of Research in Science Teaching, and the American Geological Union. He was the Eastern United States Outstanding Earth Science Teacher winner for NAGT. The award is given for "exceptional contributions to the stimulation of interest in the Earth Sciences at the pre-college level." Dr. Cohen is certified in elementary education, middle school science, k-12 Earth Science, Supervision, Principalship, and Superintendency. He has presented and consulted internationally in pedagogy specifically on the Nature of Science, technology education, and climate change. His current research and professional development support combine these three passions with design thinking and makerspace education pedagogy.
