Dr. Michael DiSpezio is a globally respected renaissance educator, speaker, and science education author. He hosts JASON broadcasts and shepherded the Discovery Channel to their first Emmy Award nomination. A former marine biologist, he worked as a research assistant to a Nobel Prize winner. Leaving the laboratory and his instructor role at Boston University, he celebrated his passion for education as a K-12 classroom teacher for ten years. Returning to graduate school, he completed his Ed.D., based upon his work in HIV/AIDS education. In addition to writing the national curriculum on The Science of HIV, published by the National Science Teachers Association, Michael has authored over 25 trade books and coauthored over 60 textbooks. Beyond his work with leading print publishers, he has developed materials for Google, Disney, the Discovery Channel, PBS, Children’s Television Workshop, MTV, Scientific American Frontiers, The JASON Project, and the US Department of Education. These days, his interests in developing AR and VR experiences have been supplanted by the need to create COVID-19-literate students.
