Badges Earned

Assets Created

Learning about robots in the 5th grade inspired me to become an electrical engineer and launch rockets for NASA, create computer systems for the federal government, and lead research at the University of Kentucky. I started BrainSTEM to inspire the next generation of tech geniuses. Our program is career-focused, future-forward, and student-centered.
