STEM Education, the Science of Engagement and a Touch of Magic – Steve Spangler on the PBS Show Side by Side with Nido Qubein

Steve Spangler with Nido Qubein on Side by Side

I rarely get to talk about my influence as a “magician” in my career as a STEM educator. But Dr. Nido Qubein, President of High Point University, was curious about how the art of magic impacted my career as an educator… plus so much more.

I’m honored to be a guest on Dr. Qubein’s show SIDE BY SIDE, which airs on PBS. This episode was taped in the beautiful theater at High Point University, and the interview focuses on some of the most significant factors educators face today.

I’m grateful to Dr. Qubein for asking such thoughtful and thought-provoking questions and taking a genuine interest in my work as a STEM educator. I hope you’ll tune in and watch the interview that airs tonight or you can click on the link above to stream the video.
