“Having two engineers as parents, robotics was a big part of my life growing up, and morphed into sharing, connecting, and communicating my passion for STEM to everyone around me.”
I serve as the captain of our high school Vex robotics team and I'm the co-founder of Education Empowers, a nonprofit who shares our passion for STEM in the community and extends STEM and robotics opportunities to children lacking such.
My name is Mariana and I intend to create a Teen Science Cafe at my school. It will meet bi-weekly and I will invite guest speakers and supply hands-on explorations for participating students. I am dedicated to helping my school learn more about science and technology in creative ways. My desire is to make science a fun adventure for students of all ages. Hopefully, that will encourage them to make a difference in the world
