25 Interesting STEM Experts Worth Following On Twitter

twitter science 1 Whether you’re a science teacher or not, education and the STEM subjects is a hot topic these days. From discussions about comparing test scores in STEM subjects with students around the globe to tracking the number of STEM based jobs and future graduates, there’s certainly a lot to discuss. There’s a lot of information out there, especially on Twitter. I come across so many different things on a daily basis that I can’t possibly write about them all. So whether you’re just looking for classroom resources or if you’re looking for folks to connect with to broaden and strengthen your PLN, Twitter offers a wealth of opportunity and information to keep your brain busy.

To facilitate, we’ve put together a quick (read: not even close to being exhaustive) list of some great folks to follow on Twitter. You may be able to find resources even more relevant to you by searching Twitter for a keyword (ie, STEM) plus your location. But for now, start here!

    Great list, but one major omission is Wes Fryer, @wfryer He is a leading STEM expert who has been active on social media for years and has garnered a major following. He is one of the most innovative American educators on the topic of integrating STEM into the traditional curriculum.

    I hope I can make your next list! I’ve been blogging about Biology, Education, Teaching, and Technology at my website sevenminutescientist.com. I teach a large lecture to non-majors Biology students at The U of Akron, and write curriculum. I’m also looking to engage via Twitter @bioamyb. I can’t wait to follow these STEM innovators! Thanks!
