Bogusia Gierus

IMG_6380.jpg

Bogusia Gierus has been a teacher for over 20 years in Calgary, Edmonton, and Montreal. Throughout her career, she taught math and science, but her specialty is teaching physics in secondary high school. She started her Ph.D. in the Learning Sciences in 2022 under the supervision of Dr. Brent Davis. One of her passions is to play and develop games and puzzles. One of her creations is the Hexa-Trex Puzzle, which involves arithmetic and spatial reasoning. She is excited to see how redesigning games and puzzles can be used in classrooms to transform learning.
