George Lucas Educational Foundation

Daniel Leonard

Assistant Editor

I’m a journalist with a deep interest in science, history, and education. I got my bachelor’s degree in the History of Science from Harvard University, and my master’s degree in Science Journalism from New York University. My writing has appeared in Scientific American, Scienceline, The Harvard Crimson, and elsewhere. I come from a family of educators; my mother teaches pre-K and my father teaches eighth-grade. I’m currently based in Philadelphia.
