There is one Site Director assigned to each school. Site Directors are essential to our organization because of their leadership role among the volunteers and their dedication to keeping operations running smoothly. They oversee a small group of volunteers (Site Facilitators) in guiding young scholars through STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) problem solving. Each week, they present a STEAM-related challenge and work in conjunction with the Site Facilitators to mentor and help scholars hone their problem-solving skills.

Site Facilitators

Site Facilitators make up the core of Studio: TESLA operations. They are our ground troops who mentor young scholars through STEAM projects. A team of 3 to 5 Facilitators visit each site once a week, working closely with the Enrichment Team to implement valuable design-thinking projects and stimulate the creative problem solving process for every scholar.

Fall 2015 Faciliators: Robbie Shorr, Huy Do, Imani Madison, Natalie Hilmer, Gavin Schmitz, Nick Kosinski, Angelica Tao Zhu, Meghan, Jared Crane, Kyle Thomas, Logan Groneck
