by Mike Feder, STEMx Director
Today, I’m incredibly proud to announce to you a major step forward for STEMx.
We’re announcing the first six members of the STEMx Advisory Board. The formal press release is below. I urge you to take a look at these six strong advocates for STEM. They’ll provide us detailed guidance moving forward.
In particular, I want to draw your attention to the diversity of groups these leaders represent. Naturally, we have strong representation from STEMx members. Here Patrick D’Amelio from Washington STEM, Dr. Thomas Peters from South Carolina’s Coalition for Mathematics & Science, and Angela Hemingway from the Idaho STEM Action Center are joining the board.
We also have Dr. David Evans, executive director of the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA). Reginald McGregor will help provide a business perspective, with his deep connections at Rolls Royce. And we’re proud to have Dr. Anita Krishnamurthi, from the Afterschool Alliance, who will help understand how to better sync up with the extensive reach of afterschool providers.
This intersection of STEM education advocates, business, and other groups is key to helping us achieve our goals. Please help me give warm welcome to these members of our team.
