Education Office: Spencer Pasero, Manager
Spencer Pasero is the Manager of Fermilab's Office of Education and Public Outreach. He has led and contributed to a variety of education programs at the Lab since coming onboard in 1998, including K8 physical science field trip programs, high school teacher workshops, undergraduate internship programs, and public events such as the Family Open House and Wonders of Science.
Prior to joining Fermilab, Spencer taught chemistry at York Community High School in Elmhurst. He holds an M.S. from Northern Illinois University in Educational Research and Evaluation. His thesis was a study on the effects of a pilot physics-first high school curriculum sequence on student attitude toward and achievement in science.
While earning a B.S. in Chemistry and a B.S. in the Teaching of Chemistry from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Spencer worked as an evaluator for the Visualization in Chemistry (ChemViz) Project of the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), and as an undergraduate research assistant for the Merit Program for Emerging Scholars. After leaving UIUC, Spencer taught high school chemistry and physical science for two and one-half years before coming to Fermilab.
