We are a social venture creating fun-filled opportunities to foster curiosity and learning in Science, Technology, Engineering Math (STEM) for diverse children.
My name is Tayo. I founded "I am Pluripotent," a social venture creating fun-filled opportunities to foster curiosity and learning in Science, Technology, Engineering Math (STEM) for diverse children. I have a teaching license as a subject matter expert to teach biology, chemistry, and health from the Arizona Department of Education. As a woman in STEM and a Nigerian American, I am aware of the disparities in STEM, and I want to be part of the solution as a learned Yoruba woman.
I have a career as a medical science liaison in the pharmaceutical industry. Outside of my career, I enjoy spending my free time inspiring youth to pursue STEM through "I am Pluripotent" and other opportunities in the community.
As a result of these disparities, I feel compelled to take action and provide STEM learning opportunities in K-12 classrooms and communities. I am translating my experience in science, technology, engineering, and healthcare to provide educational content along with our partners and collaborators. We also provide a curriculum from an established franchise.
I am pluripotent
I am unique
I can become anything
I will unleash the science within
I will learn my scientific story from my genetic code through human development, growth, aging and the cycle of life
I will learn how to use science, technology, engineering and math to positively impact my life and my environment
I will use that knowledge to transform myself to reach my highest potential and empower others to do so
I will become the STEM solution in my community and globally
I am a citizen scientist now and forever
I will ensure that everyone has access to medical technology
I am the future
I am pluripotent
All students, regardless of income, ethnicity, or gender, deserve the opportunity to be prepared with 21st-century skills for future occupations
