PRLog - Mar. 27, 2014 - MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. -- IT’S ABOUT TIME®, the pioneering STEM education publisher, on Wednesday announced its debut list of "The Top 10 Game-Changing Edupreneurs to Watch in 2014."

The announcement comes one week before more than 10,000 educators and edupreneurs from across the nation gather at the 2014 National Science Teacher Association Conference to discuss the future of teaching and education in this country. (Visit http://iatfutureofeducation.splashthat.com for more details on IT'S ABOUT TIME®'s series of events at NSTA.)

At a challenging time for the U.S. education system, where efforts to improve STEM programs have gained urgency in a competitive world economy, a growing wave of change agents has emerged to disrupt the classroom -- and transform it from the inside out.

Says Laurie Kreindler, IT’S ABOUT TIME® Co-Founder and Co-President: "There are so many incredible educators, entrepreneurs and activists who are working to change education and bring it into the future. We wanted to acknowledge just a few of the many voices leading the charge who will, no doubt, continue to be a vocal and vital part of the conversation and solutions moving forward."

List-makers include: "Big Bang Theory" actress and real-life scientist/teacher Mayim Bialik; STEM educator and reformer Arthur Eisenkraft; innovative edtech "student-preneur" Megan Holstein; White House "2013 Teacher of the Year" Jeff Charbonneau; and Elise Andrew, creator of the mega-popular "I F---ing Love Science" blog-turned-TV series.
