Prior to his work as a researcher, Dr. Remy Dou was one of the youngest K-12 STEM educators ever selected to the Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellowship through which he served two years at the National Science Foundation (NSF) in the Division of Research on Learning in Formal and Informal Settings. During his fellowship years (2011 – 2013), Dr. Dou worked on projects related to student engagement in STEM, informal STEM learning, and diversity in STEM education, including working with the White House’s Office of Science and Technology Policy to develop a design and evaluation framework for federal STEM intervention programs. This framework contributed to the White House’s Committee on STEM Education in the creation of a five-year Federal STEM education strategic plan. Dr. Dou presented on these topics at the NSF and at many national conferences.

As a successful K-12 educator, Dr. Dou taught in both the private and public school sectors from 2004 to 2011. Primarily, he taught and developed curricula for high school Biology, AP Biology, Chemistry, and Physics courses. At Miami Christian School in Miami, Florida, he served as Science Department Director, helping realign the school’s science standards across all grade levels. Currently, he is based out of Florida International University.
