LINGO is a fun and engaging way for students to learn basic coding and engineering concepts at home or as part of a virtual camp or school program, junior high, through the first two years of university.
Before founding STEMBoard, Aisha worked at NASA’s Ames Research Center, focusing on miniaturized satellites and aircraft trajectory optimization.
Aisha has received numerous awards, including The 40 Under 40: Tech Diversity – Silicon Valley, the U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce Emerging Star Award, and NASA’s Engineering Honor Award.
