This Tuesday I'll be at NASDAQ MarketSite 4 Times Square for a fireside chat with Knightscope's Chairman and CEO, William Santana Li.
Knightscope is an advanced security technology company based in Silicon Valley. They build fully autonomous security robots that deter, detect and report.
From their website, their long-term ambition is to make the United States the safest country in the world.
STEM jobs pay very well. The median earning for all non-STEM jobs in the country is $19.30/hour. The average median hourly wage for STEM jobs? $38.85. Some quick math says STEM jobs pay $19.55 more than all others. And that's way better than minimum wage.
Parents, it's never too early to introduce STEM to your child.
200 years seems like a blink of the eye. Antibiotics, Video Games, Television, Airplanes, Cell Phones, Penicillin, Refrigerators, Satellites, Air Conditioning. In less than 200 years we as a nation went from "everything made by hand" to watching the Mars rover live on your smartphone.
I'll be recording an NYDLA Video Podcast with William Santana Li this Friday. According to their website, they are hiring.
Of course they are.
They are hiring STEM workers.
