Anu Bidani is the CEO of STEM MINDS, an organization that helps teachers better equip students with the tools and skills they need to be fearless leaders by providing them a safe environment to learn science, technology, engineering, and math skills. She is a passionate innovator, teacher, and entrepreneur as well as an external reviewer of funding proposals for Ontario Centre of Excellence. Anu also serves on the Advisory Board for the startup company, MyLauft and frequently conducts presentations and speaking engagements at school career events.

 

Anu joins me today to share the fascinating environment she has built for teachers and students at STEM MINDS and how the company empowers parents while they learn with their children. She explains how STEM MINDS begins to build relationships with parents and students, why she believes it’s important to understand what excites students to learn, and how they use that enthusiasm to determine the programs and skills they would be most interested in learning to hone.

 

“Once we understand what excites children - what gets them going - that becomes the starting point of their journey.” - Anu Bidani
