I was invited to speak on career day at Meadow Livingstone School, a small elementary school that specializes in educating African-American children to reach their full academic, social, emotional and creative potential.
I was impressed with Mrs. Meadows grasp on her students attention. They were all so well behaved and excited I was there to share my work experience. I spent time explaining how i use STEM in my work. I emphasized that math and science maybe hard, but anything worth doing shouldn't be be easy. We had fun exchanging game ideas and looking at sketches drawn by the students who want to make their own games some day.
