Dennis Schatz


Biography & Awards

Work History
Dennis Schatz is Senior Advisor at Pacific Science Center in Seattle, Washington. A research solar astronomer prior to his career in science education, he worked at the Lawrence Hall of Science at the University of California, Berkeley, prior to moving to Seattle in 1977. At Pacific Science Center he has held a broad range of positions from Director of the Planetarium in his early years to VP for Exhibits and VP for Education to Senior VP in more recent years. In the last 4 years, he was a Visiting Scholar at the University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia, followed by four years as a Program Director at the National Science Foundation (NSF).

Pacific Science Center Activities
He has provided leadership to several of Pacific Science Center's major initiatives, including Washington State LASER and Portal to the Public. He co-directed Washington State LASER (Leadership and Assistance for Science Education Reform), a program to implement a quality K-12 science program in all 295 school districts in Washington State.

The Portal to the Public effort is an initiative to develop programs - both onsite and off - that engage the public in understanding the current science research being conducted in our community. The first major Portal to the Public program was an NSF grant to develop and research effective models to engage the public in understanding current science research via face-to-face interactions with scientists. It was so successful that it has been expanded to 43 sites across the country via funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and NSF.

Over his years at Pacific Science Center he served as Principal Investigator for a number of National Science Foundation (NSF) projects, including the Science Center's innovative Community Leadership project that develops science advocates in community-based organizations, and the nationally touring exhibit, Aliens: Worlds of Possibilities, which explores the nature of the solar system and the search for extraterrestrial life in the galaxy.

He is active in the Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC), being a past member of its Program Committee, Professional Development Committee and past chair of its Education Committee, and its Leading Edge Awards Selection Committee. He is also active in the National Science Teachers Association, having been Program or General Chair for three of NSTA's Conventions.

He has dedicated many years to identifying effective ways to teach astronomy concepts, especially through his involvement with the Astronomical Society of the Pacific (ASP), the largest international society dedicated to astronomy education in and out of school. He is a past board member and a past president of the ASP.

Honors
He has received numerous honors, including the 1996 Distinguished Informal Science Educator Award from the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA). He received NSTA's 2005 lifetime achievement award (Distinguished Service to Science Education). In 2006 ASTC made him an ASTC Fellow for his lifetime achievement in service to the field and furthering the public's understanding of science. He is only one of 24 ASTC Fellows awarded in the history of ASTC and the first non-CEO or public official to receive the award. In March, 2009 he received the Faraday Science Communicator Award, presented annually by the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA). This award recognizes and honors an individual or organization that has inspired the public's interest in and appreciation of science. He joins an elite group of highly prestigious honorees, including the PBS series NOVA and NPR Science Correspondent Ira Flatow. Most recently, he received the 2014 Klumpke-Roberts Award from the Astronomical Society of the Pacific for outstanding contributions to the public understanding and appreciation of astronomy. Past awardees include stellar astronomy communicators, such as Carl Sagan, Isaac Asimov, Timothy Ferris and Dava Sobel.

Author Activities
He is the author of 23 science books for children, including Uncover A T.rex, the Fossil Detective series of four books and the popular Totally series of six books (Totally Dinosaurs in 2000 to Totally Sea Creatures in 2003). His most recent book is The Amazing Squishy T.rex. His books have sold almost 2 million copies worldwide and have been translated into 23 languages. His Uncover A T.rex book was a 2003 Parents Choice Award Winner, and his Fossil Detective Woolly Mammoth received a 2006 iParenting Media award. He is also co-author/editor of several curriculum resources for teachers, including Astro-Adventures, Universe At Your Fingertips and More Universe At Your Fingertips.
