Ashburn Center STEM Staff
Mr. Joshua Yalowitz
If it blinks lights, turns gears or reacts to sensors, Mr. Josh has worked with it. Josh has a deep interest in electrical engineering and computing and has worked with micro-controllers like the Arduino for more than a decade. He has experience in rapid prototyping, CAD design, 3D printing, electric circuit design, wood working, metal working and fabrication, to name a few. He mentored high school students at Marshall High School in Falls Church to help them rebuild their robotics program and took them to the semi-finals this year. He firmly believes that incorporating science and technology into the lives of children at a young age onwards will advance their critical thinking and logical thinking abilities and these skills will advance them significantly in life. Mr. Josh is on his way to becoming a licensed Technology teacher for the county. Mr. Josh will be helping Ms. Soumya in all the STEAM and Lego/Robotics courses at Science Cosmos.
