ASU professor Tsafrir Mor believes STEM education in prisons can change the world

Professor Tsafrir Mor teaches in the School of Life Sciences at Arizona State University— but when he’s not in the lab or the lecture hall on campus, he can sometimes be found teaching in a very different type of classroom.

Mor is active in Arizona State University's Prison Education Program, and he and Joe Lockard co-edited a new book about the challenges — and opportunities — of teaching STEM courses in prisons.

The title of the book is simple: “STEM Education in U.S. Prisons” — but Mor’s vision is anything but.
