Ed Gap Evolution: Tondalaya Takapu on STEM for kids with Club Lab Rascals and Entrepreneurship


Hailing from Detroit, Michigan, Tondalaya (Tee) Takapu is the CEO of Club Lab Rascals, active-duty Airforce member, wife, and proud mom of two boys. Her company is making space for more children to get excited about learning and build STEM skills through virtual and in-school programs that emphasize hands-on learning.

Not only does the company empower K-5 kids to be doctors, scientists, etc. even as children, but they are inspiring more children of color to explore STEM by inviting STEM professionals of color to make frequent special guest appearances in Club Lab Rascals learning labs.

In this episode, we discuss how Tee literally flipped a coin on her future, what side that coin landed on, and how her choice to say "yes" set her on an action-packed journey to owning one of the most diverse and fastest-growing STEM (for kids) companies in America.
