Mic Fenech is a third year STEM Education Ph.D. student and Graduate Research Assistant at The University of Texas at Austin. His research interests center around how students' classroom experiences influence their attitudes towards mathematics and how those attitudes shape their identities as mathematicians. He is currently implementing an instructional model called Argument-Driven Mathematics in high school math classrooms to see how students' attitudes change when exposed to argumentation. He also helped develop the first year-long high school course on quantum computing that is currently in its third year of implementation. This course is now a part of the OnRamps dual enrollment program, allowing students to earn college credit while still in high school.
