CFES Global Conference: After-Dinner Keynote – New Beginnings in STEM Study & Careers
Dr. Calvin Mackie, President and Founder at STEM NOLA, channeled his passion, enthusiasm and dedication to creating pathways to STEM, creating new beginnings for the youth of today. In 2013, he founded STEM NOLA, engaging over 100,000 mostly under-served low-income students in hands-on project-based STEM learning. In a world where many students are told “no,” Mackie continues to remind leaders in education, business, community, and philanthropy to say “yes” to their students’ future! In his talk, Mackie reminded us of the power of saying YES to student success!
