Miss American Comes to Visit

This past week the Milken Knights brought Miss America 2015 Kira Kazantsev and Nancy Conrad to speak to our school’s students about STEM. Miss America Kira Kazanstev is an advocate for STEM, and particularly for women in STEM fields. Notably, Nancy Conrad founded the Conrad Spirit of Innovation Challenge to honor her late husband, Pete Conrad. We were thrilled to be able to demonstrate our robots to her and tell her all about our FRC and FLL programs. You can view pictures from this event on our Facebook page here.Milken Miss America
