Shaping Houston: Quinn Woodard

Quinn Woodard is a STEM advocate, mentor, author, and speaker. Through his involvement with serving on curriculum advisory committees, mentoring students, and his own personal experience, Quinn realized that early exposure to STEM is critical for minority students. He authored the book Like Me in hopes to provide early exposure to STEM for students and provide a brief history lesson of those who came before. The book follows a young girl who loves math and science but struggles to figure out what she wants to be for her class’ upcoming career day. With the help of a friend, she learns all about the amazing things she can become if she follows her passions just like the pioneers who have come before her.
