Dr. Robert Beichner is an award-winning professor of physics at North Carolina State University and is receiving the Prize for his work at the post-secondary level. He has changed how students learn in the science classroom not only on his home campus, but at the more than 100 institutions of higher education that have adopted SCALE-UP, an approach that uses digital technology combined with innovative teaching approaches centered on hands-on activities and roundtable discussions. He was named an American Council on Education Fellow for the 2010-11 academic year and co-authored the most widely used college physics textbook in the country. Since 2007 he has been the Director of NC State's STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) Education Initiative, with a mission to study and improve STEM education in North Carolina and around the world.
