Lindsay Levkoff calls herself a “recovering molecular biologist.” Now she’s the director of education at SparkFun. I spoke to her after they launched this new website; this interview runs the gamut on topics like America’s failures (and successes) with STEM education, why higher education may be misguided, how to get kids using hands-on materials at a much earlier age, and much more. Side note to all this: SparkFun is completely open-source.

Here’s Levkoff talking at POSSCON 2012:

What’s This All About?

This is a blog and podcast series about the work we all do: the highs, the lows, the effectiveness, the intrigue, the models, the double speak, and the passion. The point is to have discussions with people in those fields about their life and experiences. And hey, sometimes the stories might be funny, too. In the spring of 2013, the new posts started to fade, but you can find them all on iTunes.
