STEM is DOPE -- Justin Shaifer
Justin’s goal “to be for STEM what ESPN is for sports” and to inspire young people to “embrace their inner nerd despite their surroundings,” springs from his own life experience. Self-taught and fascinated by science, Justin founded Fascinate, Inc. a nonprofit that reaches out to underrepresented students to “Get Them Into STEM!” through a culturally responsive STEM curriculum. Justin regularly speaks to the importance of STEM, STEM diversity and creating a pipeline of diverse STEM.
