I am Nora Dixon. I am 14 years old and I am a 9th grader at Eagan High School. My goal is to inspire girls to do S.T.E.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) related things. I am passionate about helping people, especially girls be active in STEM. This will be my fourth year in Technovation[MN]. I wanted to participate in Technovation the first year, but I couldn’t fit it into my schedule. After volunteering that year at Appapalooza, I told my mom – I AM doing this next year! I earned my Girl Scout Silver Award project last year by hosting a STEAM event with a friend at the Minneapolis Institute of Art. I also am involved in FIRST robotics on the FTC Thunder PengWins team and on the debate, speech and swim teams. I received the Presidential Award of Excellence for Academics. I am very excited to be a Technovation Global Ambassador this year and be a student representative on the Technovation[MN] board.
