The Founders

Owner/Strategy Officer

As a mother of 2 very active, young, tech-savvy, curious (and easily bored children), Cari sees The Great STEMporium as a place that can help keep parents sane while also giving them a chance to earn their Parent-of-the-Year award. As a long time strategist within a family-owned business, she's learned a thing or two about the importance of educational opportunity, career path exploration, and positive mojo. For Cari, success doesn't mean anything unless you share it with others.

Ever since he was five and his uncle Joe told him he was the ONLY kid to ever break out of the couch-cushion fort/jail, Dave has been hooked on bringing whimsical entertainment to life for kids in surprising and unexpected ways. After decades of successfully leading companies in advertising, marketing, and online education, he is still a big kid-at-heart. He takes his work seriously, but not himself. Just listen for the guy singing "Zip-a- Dee-Doo- Dah" and you'll find our David.
