About Us — The Exploratory

An early adopter of making as an engagement strategy, she has been teaching STEAM subjects in formal and informal education programs such as after school, in-class, camps to both children and educators since 2011. Early days of tinkering in the garage and the dark room with her father led her to a career working in media that combined science, technology and art.

She studied psychology and film in college and went on to work at the world’s first HDTV production companies in NY in the 80′s. Among many firsts, she worked on live HDTV satellite broadcasts from NY to Japan and was part of a team that developed programming that showcased the newest High Definition equipement.
