Bio
During her 11-year career as a high-school teacher, Dori Roberts started an after-school club to compete in engineering and science-based competitions. The club gained 180 student members and won multiple state championships, and its success inspired Roberts to leave the teaching profession and develop the program into a business. The result was Engineering for Kids, which offers science, technology, engineering and math workshops for ages 4 to 14 through after-school programs, evening classes, field trips, parties and more.
