Over the past twenty+ years Claire has been involved in the design and implementation of multiple STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) educational outreach programs. She has worked extensively to bridge connections between higher education's research community and its educational partners from K-14. Her work has led to deep understanding and respect for the partner community that Higher Education seeks to support. It has also has provided her multiple opportunities to mentor university students interested in sharing their passion for science, engineering and innovation.
Claire's continued goals are to utilize this expertise to design and implement innovative programs and partnerships that effectively engage individuals and communities currently underrepresented in these fields and to support the development of the next generation of STEM professionals, and that meet our rapidly changing regional and national technological needs.
