Suna joins the FES team adding a forward-thinking initiative to provide an advanced science and technology-based education capability. By leading efforts to expand internet access to remote regions or individuals with network feasibility limitations, she pursues establishing an extensive global learning network that links students with educational resources and online, face-to-face, distance mentoring and tutoring.
Through her Rising Science, Technology and Applied Resources (Rising STAR) initiative, we focus on improving upon and supplementing students’ STEM education. We realize great benefits in gaining momentum toward researching, learning and developing natural resources in these regions. By accomplishing this, we will foster creativity and innovation that not only provides solutions for these communities, but also grows to meet and exceed community needs.
