Today she’s a NASA engineer turned CEO, but Aisha Bowe began her journey as a self described teen struggling with low self-esteem. After excelling in community college math classes she transferred to Michigan Engineering’s aerospace program, where she earned her bachelor’s and later a master’s degree in space systems engineering. Her tech company, STEMBoard, aims to help historically underrepresented youth play a role in designing tomorrow’s technologies.
In this episode of RE: Engineering Radio, Bowe discusses her life, career trajectory, and the importance of a company like STEMBoard. This interview was conducted by Rob Woodfork at WTOP News in Washington D.C. and has been adapted with permission.
