Frank Signorello, STEM Program Director

In his twenty five years of service in STEM education in both formal and museum classrooms across NYC, native Queens resident and former Physics teacher and museum educator, Frank Signorello, has proven himself to be a STEM education asset, mentor, and a true partner to hundreds of students and teachers across New York City and Long Island.

Combining his broad knowledge base in science, mathematics, and technology with his dedication to engaging young minds in both the formal and out of school time classrooms, Frank creates and implements programs that are at once rigorous, innovative, and directly correlated to science and math standards. With a non-traditional approach to teaching focusing on experiential learning and project-based methods, Frank reaches young people with strong science and a great sense of fun.

Frank graduated from Stuyvesant High School and then attended Stony Brook University where he graduated with a B.S. in Physics. He later attended CUNY/Queens College where he received a M.S. in Secondary Science Education and is currently a PhD candidate in NYU’s Steinhardt School.

As a teacher, director, mentor and professional developer, Frank forges deep connections between youth, educators, and STEM.
