Keynote Speaker

Dr. Nehemiah Mabry (@Nee_Engineer), founder of STEMedia®, started this organization because he was passionate about sharing a unique perspective of his field of study that was often overlooked.  Many persons shy away from careers in STEM (Science – Technology – Engineering- Math) because they are considered dull and boring.  Not true!  Mabry recognized that persons were unaware and just not knowledgeable enough about the numerous fun and exciting careers that could be found in the amazing field of STEM.  As such, STEMedia® was created to showcase how creative and equally prestigious STEM careers are when compared to many of the other careers highly admired by today’s youth.
