After Researching Brains, Neuroscientist Launches a STEM Franchise to Impact Young Brains

Morrisville, NC, USA and Toronto, Canada 9/30/19

 “My research centered on developmental changes of the early-age brain in mental diseases. I gained valuable insights into how the brain develops and matures, using many cutting-edge technologies in my research. I also spent many hours of those years teaching undergraduate and graduate university students, developing a passion for witnessing students learn new knowledge and skills, and succeed at their goals”, says Dr. Frankie Lee, newest STEM For Kids franchisee in Toronto, Canada.Self photo (1)

During Dr Lee’s journey, he noticed how sensitive the brains of children are to external stimuli. His thorough research allowed him to analyze the early stages of  young minds. Dr. Lee was sure he wanted to make impact in the next generation in a huge way, so he sought after another opportunity.

“The early-age brain indeed shows the highest capacity for learning and memory with greater plasticity (ability to change) and the least amount of effort required proportionately. I realized it could be immensely satisfying to work with the next generation of researchers and innovators at an even earlier stage – what better way to encourage young minds into a field I am passionate about myself!”

After two decades, Dr. Lee noticed a rise in the growth of STEM jobs. He believes STEM fields will provide a great amount of opportunities in the future for young minds. His vision for the next generation is coming to life before his very eyes and he is excited about what is next to come.

“STEM For Kids also provides one of the broadest array of STEM programs, including engineering, robotics, computer programming, website design, entrepreneurship and biomedical sciences. Moreover, these programs are designed and tailored for specific age groups, allowing a more personalized, efficient, and fun learning environment. After reading countless accounts by children who are alumni of STEM For Kids or currently
enrolled, I was convinced this was an organization I wanted to be part of. Thus began my adventure that eventually led me to establish STEM For Kids Toronto West End!”

“We are thrilled to have Dr. Lee bring his neuroscience expertise and couple it with STEM For Kids programs to deliver integrated STEM for children in downtown Toronto. On behalf of our entire network and our Master Franchisee in Ontario, Lee Joseph, I wish Dr. Lee and his team the very best for his new endeavor”, says Moni Singh, the creator of STEM For Kids.
