NewDay Challenge Award recipient Todd Wackerman is an MBA student at Tulane’s Freeman School. As he prepares to open his K-12 STEM equipment library for business in 2018, Todd visited analog facilities in a variety of US cities to first hand learn about logistics, implementation strategies, challenges and best practices.
On August 12th I set out on a 3,000 mile journey across the middle of the U.S. The purpose was to visit and learn about operations, logistics, marketing, outreach, and reporting, across a variety of K-12 STEM libraries across the country. Over 9 days, I visited 6 facilities and met teachers, educators, librarians, and professors engaged in work parallel to our plans here at STELL. It was a whirlwind expedition, ending in a full totality viewing of the solar eclipse on August 21st in a wide open field outside of Cookeville, Tennessee, home of the Millard Oakley STEM Center in Tennessee Tech University.
