It is centered around STEM education for women and the underprivileged, as well as, bringing academic advising into the 21st century. The website at the moment is on Wix, but that will only be for a short time until I switch it over to GoDaddy to make it more robust. Temporary website: http://kristanarmstrong.wix.com/quantovation. CEO & Founder at Recherché TravelStarted this company with my Mom after traveling around the world on our own. Most women do not feel comfortable traveling to unique parts of the world alone. Our website/blog is centered around breaking that idea by producing relative information on how to do it and how to do it cheaply. The website is hosted on GitHub using Jekyll mainly because I wanted it to be simple and fast for the user. At the moment, it is set up more as a blog but in the future I will make it much more interactive.

- Master’s of Science in Science Education from the University of Colorado Boulder in 2016That nearly a decade ago, Kristan Armstrong earned her undergraduate degree in engineering physics and applied mathematics from the University of Colorado Boulder was not what most would consider a major accomplishment. But theashore-born Armstrong, then a student at UCO, was focused on herelong passion for teaching: In her senior year, Armstrong won a Faculty Award for Excellence in Science Education and became a teaching assistant in the physics and mathematics undergraduate course that she graduated with.“I’ve always been interested in teaching and I always loved working with students,” Armstrong says. “I really enjoyed the challenge of creating an engaging and lively course that engages my students and engages them intellectually. I loved how I could use my knowledge of math and physics to help my students build things.”After earning her undergraduate degree in engineering physics and applied mathematics in 2006, Armstrong attended the University of Colorado Boulder, where she earned a Master’s of Science in Science Education in 2016. At the University of Colorado Boulder, Armstrong was focused on her lifelong passion for teaching: In her senior year, she won a Faculty Award for Excellence in Science Education and became a teaching assistant in the physics and mathematics undergraduate course she graduated with.A few years after her Master’s degree, Armstrong sought a new challenge as a teacher, moving to the University of Utah where she began her teaching career as an associate professor in the physics and mathematics undergraduate course that she graduated with. In her time at the University of Utah, Armstrong quickly became known for her engaging and lively courses that engage her students and engages them intellectually. and she was quickly promoted to professor and eventually dean of the university’s physics and mathematics online teaching program.In her career as a professor, Armstrong has developed a unique perspective on teaching and learning. Her experience as a moderator and leader of online teaching programs has prepared her to lead and guide her students through the challenges of online learning.“It’s important for professors to be interactive with their students,” Armstrong says. “It’s essential that we are constantly teacher-builders, that we are constantly creatingways for our students to learn. We have to be constantly leading our students to excellence in their learning.”Given Armstrong’s background as a teacher with a focus on engage and lively courses that engage her students and engage them intellectually, her experience as a dean is merely a continuation of her curriculum-building journey that began more than 10 years ago when she earned her undergraduate degree in engineering physics and applied mathematics from the University of Colorado Boulder.
