Startup Capital: The Podcast, Season 2 Episode 8

Engineering Agility in K-12

Every parent wants their child to succeed. That means making sure they’re equipped with the right skills and the right attitudes for the modern world. For parents looking to nurture an interest in technology and in-demand STEM careers, it’s hard to know where to start.
K-12 schools recognize the importance of STEM skills, and they certainly want to modernize their curricula. The problem is that institutional boundaries and lack of funding make change difficult and slow. It’s clear that to stay competitive, our education system needs to pivot, and fast.

“We need to change the way we teach teachers how to teach.”

For Season 2, Episode 8, of the Startup Capital podcast by Cuttlesoft, we spoke with two people working to turn things around locally.
Miranda Manning is the Recruitment Coordinator for the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering. Meagan Bonnell is the Tallahassee Director of CodeCraft Works, a K-12 coding program. Together, they’re working on local initiatives to make sure that local students don’t get left behind.
To get the full scoop on K-12 STEM education in Tallahassee, and what’s being done to help our educational system adapt to the 21st century, tune-in to Season 2, Episode 8 of the Startup Capital podcast by Cuttlesoft.

Support for Cuttlesoft comes from WFSU Public Media.
