X-STEM Video Library 

We are continuing to upload talks from X-STEM DC 2019 to our website video library. Tim Vanderham is the Chief Technology Officer of the NCR Corporation, a leading global company based in Atlanta, GA whose computer software, hardware and portfolio of services help power banking and commerce solutions across virtually all business sectors, making life more convenient for all of us. During his talk, Vanderham reminds us that innovation matters and can come from anywhere. He stresses the importance of conditioning ourselves to realize that there is no one set path in life to get you where you are today to where you want to go. Instead, there are, in fact, many paths that will change and evolve as you do.
Our X-STEM videos are a terrific educational resource for any classroom. Students can hear from a variety of visionaries exploring topics like conservation, medical research, space travel, math, weather patterns, and much more! End your school year with an X-STEM video!
