Local nonprofit Learning Undefeated has partnered with the Department of Defense to create a mentor program for high school and college girls interested in STEM careers. Emerging Leaders in Biotechnology connects college and high school women to provide them with skills, knowledge, and support to pursue careers in biotechnology.
In a typical school year, Maryland-based nonprofit Learning Undefeated serves over 50,000 K-12 students with immersive STEM learning onboard its fleet of mobile laboratories: tricked out trucks, shipping containers and busses that bring life-changing STEM experiences right to the school parking lot. But when the organization had to park its mobile labs due to COVID-19, Learning Undefeated quickly pivoted to developing hands-on digital experiences that would keep students and teachers connected with STEM subjects while learning at home.

Listen in to learn more about Brian’s career path and what makes Learning Undefeated so successful in the mobile laboratory space.
The Defense Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) Education Consortium (DSEC), supported by U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), has selected four new organizations — including Learning Undefeated — to include in DSEC’s Innovation Bloc Funding for 2021. The selected programs will support the Department’s efforts to strengthen career pathways among military-connected students and groups traditionally underrepresented in STEM, as well as one of its modernization priorities, biotechnology.
