"I first started Studio: TESLA because I saw a need in our community: how do we bring more minorities and females into STEM. But it soon evolved into something much more: harnessing this awesome interdisciplinary power where our scholars see their own potential. And yeah, it's just them solving problems after school, but we hope it shows them what happens when they don't give up."
