How Do We Empower The Children of Tomorrow? | Carson Wilber | TEDxPensacola

While technology continues to advance with leaps and bounds at an incredible pace, education in the U.S. has lagged behind dozens of other developed countries. How can communities and schools work together to beat the constraints of time and money and provide impactful STEM education to help us catch up to the rest of the world? In this talk, Carson Wilber, cofounder of a STEM education nonprofit and educator in the Florida panhandle, explains how every member of the community can contribute time, energy and expertise within their means to create meaningful and effective opportunities for K-12 students to learn STEM and power a future where U.S. education catches up in the great technology race. Carson has worked across the Emerald Coast in robotics, software design, IT and web management, and education, in all of nonprofit, government, higher education, and private sectors. He co-founded and serves as Director of Impact for a Pensacola nonprofit, INERTIA Education Programs, Inc., as well as a Co-Founder at three technology companies touching quantum computing, artificial intelligence, distributed systems, cybersecurity, and general technology services. He visits all levels of K-12 schools across the panhandle to teach and encourage students to pursue careers in STEM and high tech and fight the "Brain Drain" to stay in the Northwest Florida area. Carson is a student at the University of West Florida for Computer Science, Cybersecurity, Mathematics, and Software Design & Development, as well as an Ambassador for the UWF Center for Cybersecurity. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
