Childhood Dream Job: Inventor
If Pierce had a million dollars to spend on helping students: Pierce would fund and innovate STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) programs to help students build connections between visioning and creating. Such programs would walk students through the process of bringing ideas to life through innovation and creativity and provide them with practical skills to apply in the real world.
