Dr. Reagan Flowers’ journey towards becoming an entrepreneur, innovator, leader, and passionate advocate for STEM education began early in life. The value and importance that education had in her household was significant. Although there were some early obstacles that she had to overcome in grade school such as entering the 5th grade without knowing how to multiply, she was successfully able to complete her high school education in only three years. This was certainly the beginning of many triumphs for Dr. Flowers. Her passion for STEM began as she was working as a science teacher at Yates High School in Houston’s Third Ward. She was able to obtain a grant from NASA to create a robot, which led to Yates having their first robotics team. Not only was she able to teach valuable lessons within STEM, but she discovered the power of communication. Communication strategies and tactics can impact the way students, educators, and professionals better understand the disciplines of STEM. This is how C-STEM was born.
