Tiffani Cortez (pictured on the right) is the Technology & Engineering Instructor and the Robotics Program Director at Harmony School of Innovation- Waco. She earned a Master's of Education, STEM Education from Texas A&M University.
Engineer and educator Tiffani Cortez knows first- hand the importance of increasing diversity in the engineering workforce. After graduating with an engineering technology degree, Tiffani felt isolated as the only female engineer at the steel company where she worked. That experience, coupled with her background teaching art at an afterschool program, inspired her to pursue a career in engineering education.
Now she is a technology and engineering instructor for Harmony School of Innovation in Waco, TX. Tiffani has increased the number of girls in her engineering classes and serves a diverse community of middle and high school students that is 75% low-income and 90% non-white. She provides her students with invaluable opportunities; inviting local engineers and professors to her classroom as well as sending her students out into the Waco community. “One of my favorite class projects is student-led research presentations to local organizations. My students impress business leaders with their unique perspectives while learning how communication skills are an important aspect of STEM careers.”
DiscoverE is a key resource for Tiffani whether she is planning a classroom activity or a larger school event. “I found DiscoverE’s robust library of hands-on activities back when I first started teaching and I continue to use them today with kids of all ages.”
