Current Focus:
Research on Women in STEM

I'm Dr. Nancy Holincheck and I am an Assistant Professor of STEM Education at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. I teach and mentor doctoral students in the College of Education and Human Development's Ph.D. in Education program and teachers in Mason's Advanced Studies in Teaching and Learning program.

I am a former high school physics teacher and currently a mentor to several FIRST Robotics teams. My research focuses on under-represented groups in STEM - especially women, as well as STEM teacher identity, integrated STEM teaching and teacher education, and fostering teacher reflection. I am currently conducting an interview study with young women in STEM majors or STEM Careers.

If you are recent or current college student and you are or ever were a woman in STEM, I would love to interview you for my research study! Please click below to read and complete the consent form. Alternately you can open the consent form directly by clicking HERE.
