Reagan Flowers, PhD is an innovator and early pioneer in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) enrichment education.
She is the founder and CEO of the non-profit organization CSTEM, which has impacted over 50,000 students in the United States and Latin America through yearlong problem solving challenges and competitions in the STEM disciplines.
Following ten years of teaching and counseling students, she fused an insatiable thirst for knowledge with a solutions-based approach to develop CSTEM in 2002 as a program to provide support to both teachers and students.
She has authored two books, The CSTEM Challenge: A Feeder Pattern Approach to Reaching All Students through Hands-on Project-based Learning and CSTEM Pedagogy: Your Guide to Project-Based Learning, that have helped bring her programs successful methods to life.
Dr. Flowers has received numerous recognitions, been featured in U.S. World News, nominated for the World Innovation Summit for Education award, sits on several boards, and links her success to three things: education, an iron will, and a strong faith.
Now approaching ten years, through CSTEM, Dr. Flowers provides support services to teachers and students through an eight-month systemic change model that strengthens STEM learning.
Dr. Flowers has created an organization that meets the education needs of schools and takes into account the socio-cultural dynamics that prevent teachers and students from successfully engaging in STEM enrichment. She has implemented a model that integrates learning, holds teachers accountable, develops teacher content knowledge, exposes students to STEM competition, creates STEM education pipelines (feeder patterns), and connects classroom learning to the workforce.
In closing, Dr. Flowers continues to focus her outreach efforts in areas that assist schools in providing life changing STEM experiences for teachers and students.
