Angela Calabrese Barton is professor of science education and the learning sciences and chair of the Educational Studies at the University of Michigan. She studies approaches to teaching and learning in school and community settings that disrupt/transform systemic injustices in science learning environments serving minoritized youth and that promote justice-oriented outcomes, including what matters to people in the here-and-now and towards imagined social futures. A former chemistry teacher, she has also designed and taught community-based sustainability and green energy STEM and maker education for over two decades. She takes an historicized and future-oriented ecological and participatory approach to give witness to and learn with community partners.
