We often hear that high-tech companies are always worried about having enough engineers and that not enough young people today are interested in pursuing careers in technology.  Not to worry, as there is one person working very hard to teach our next generation of engineers and creators.  Danielle Boyer works to inspire the youth in her area in STEAM and technology, and came up with several great ideas to do this, including her own program “Every Kid Gets a Robot” (EKGAR), for which she created and built her own Robotics start kit that she gives away.  She has also developed STEAM-focused coloring books, and spends a lot of time teaching children on STEAM and technology and helping many student Robotics teams.  But what’s most amazing is that she is only 18 years old.
