Our STEAMTeam 5 Backstory
When my daughter was born, like many parents, my wife and I were concerned about what the world would look like when she grows up. Will there even BE jobs? We decided to take the responsibility upon ourselves to make sure she was prepared for any possible future.
“Science, technology, engineering, and math” — STEM. It’s all you hear about these days. But I soon became painfully aware of the shortage of STEM/STEAM role models and stories aimed specifically at young girls.
I work from home and have the flexibility to take an active role in my daughter’s education. From a very early age, we’ve taught her to ask lots of questions, solve problems creatively, build things, use computers, and have a blast while doing it!
I’m taking the opportunity to teach her self-reliance and empowerment through directed playtime. When we play with her Barbies, I weave in stories in which the dolls used STEAM “superpowers” to do cool stuff, like rescuing animals, solving problems, inventing products, and starting companies. My daughter no longer asks to play dolls; she asks “Can we play Company?”
Whenever my wife or I mention these stories to parents, their eyes light up, and they want to know how they could get these stories for their own kids.
My long-time friend and business partner, Pam Metivier, is a gifted writer and online marketer extraordinaire. We started a new company to write and launch STEAMTEAM 5 so that parents everywhere can inspire their daughters with great role models.
Our mission is to make STEAMTEAM 5 a household name among parents. Our book, “The Beginning,” is just that. Pam and I welcome you to join us on this mission!
