Kids in Technology and Science

Joleen’s efforts to advance the impact of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics upon the lives of young women derives from her experiences as an engineering student at the University of Hawaii and former contestant in the Miss America Program. Joleen has been afforded a unique vehicle to further her goals of outreach, education, and empowerment to others that began in 2009. Fueled by a passion for service to her community and her life's connection to STEM, she founded a hands-on learning program entitled Kids in Technology and Science or KITS. Her goal is to engage and excite young women to embrace the role of STEM in their individual and our nation’s collective futures.
