The Researchers at the Intersection of Science and Education (RISE) is a community of PhDs and PhD candidates who are actively pursuing or would like to pursue careers in Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) education, education research, science outreach and communication at all educational levels. By establishing a professional network of experts at the intersection of science and education, RISE seeks to foster a community of like-minded individuals to support career-track and professional development. In addition to providing a platform for STEM educators, RISE seeks to maximize the impact of scientist educators to advance scientific literacy and the use of evidence-based educational research in the classroom and to inspire both current and future scientists to communicate their science to the public.
