VP of Operations: Nathalie Austin

As VP of Operations, Nathalie Austin makes sure students at every site will have the materials and mentors needed to ensure a successful activity. She makes sure there are plenty of resources for every student to complete hands-on design challenges. With the Operations team, she works directly and closely with students as they complete activities each week while learning about STEM topics.

Nathalie has worked on the Operations team for a few years, and her favorite part of it has been getting to know students and watching them graduate to high school, sometimes returning to help with weekly studios. “Studio: TESLA has helped me share my passion for STEM education while deepening my bond with the St. Louis community.”
