Fantastic Launch of this Podcast!!
What a fantastic breadth of topics you are covering right out of the gate!!! Thank you for making STEM accessible. You two make a great team and I appreciate your interaction and thoughtful questions to the interviewees! Keep up the great work.
I am not big podcast listener but after being told this was a great project I tried it an loved it. Hearing about the STEM events and people here in the Southwest is super cool.
Grateful to have such positive influences!
We are very excited to have this type of opportunity available to our community through hands on activities from drones to engineering robots and learning in STEM without it feeling like learning. This is a wonderful way to build a solid foundation for the future of our youth and get experience working as a team.
