In this episode of the Wired Educator Podcast, I interview an expert in all things STEM, Chris Woods.  Chris is the host of the Daily STEM Podcast and I love following him on Twitter. He is an amazing resource. He finds STEM everywhere!

Chris started the idea of dailySTEM to help educators and parents find STEM in the real world and share STEM with the kids they know.  Why?  Because STEM is all around us…in the backyard, at the store, in our homes, on TV and movies, in the news…everywhere!

Chris has been a High School Math teacher (Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Hands-on Geometry) since 1999 in Calumet, Michigan. He wrote his own Algebra 1 iBook (Part 1and Part 2) for students, complete with short video examples and practice questions for every lesson (all of the videos are available on YouTubeas well.)

Chris lives in a woods in a house he built himself with his wife and three children. 

Chris's work in education has be recognized as the 2013 Teacher of the Year, Calumet Public Schools, and he was a recipient of the 2017-2018 Michigan Teacher Leadership Advisory Council.

Chris and I talk of all things STEM and how it fits into any grade, in any content area. We talk maker spaces, making, science, math, technology, engineering, creating and, so much more.
