I met with a founder with a bachelor’s, master’s, and doctorate in engineering. He’s worked at a variety of prestigious organizations building amazing things. Speaking with him, it’s obvious he’s passionate about his work. He said that his life’s work is the result of a single robotics engineer visiting his school when he was ten years old. He had no idea that robotics existed before that day, but from that point on, that’s all he wanted to do.
Exposure is important and can be a game changer. This founder’s journey is a testament to that. Mine is too. Until you know a field of knowledge exists, it won’t affect your life—you won’t be fired up with the desire to do something wonderful because of it. This founder is now on a mission to help expose as many children as possible to STEM, and he has some great early traction.
I’m excited for this founder and look forward to watching his journey. I suspect he will have a positive impact on the lives of many children!
