Every time I interact with a veteran, two thoughts enter my mind.
The first is the memory of my grandfather and personal hero, First Sergeant John Katz – a Hungarian immigrant who entered the country through Ellis Island and enlisted as a private in the U.S. Army in 1942. He was 32 years old.
It wasn’t until my first job out of college—one in the wireless business—that I developed a passion for technology and saw how STEM impacts everything we do. This was the spark that led me to fall in love with the network engineering elements of wireless, and the more immersed I got in the industry, the more exposed and interested I was in other components of technology.
When an opportunity in STEM education presents itself, the unknown can be a barrier or a game changer. But it all depends on how you look at it.

Nearby, his mom and a doctor watch him slowly move forward. They like what they see. His right foot and ankle are wrapped in a new, lightweight brace made just for him four days earlier on an HP 3D printer. They peer particularly hard at Christopher’s right side – weakened by a stroke months before his birth.
His steps turn into a confident stroll. “That’s good!” his mom says.
