By capturing student imaginations and igniting career aspirations, Edheads empowers students to pursue fulfilling, productive careers in science, technology, engineering and math. We tie school to work by reinforcing basic skills and demonstrating how they are applied in STEM careers.
Through corporate philanthropy, sponsorships, partnerships and donations, Edheads—a 501c3 non-profit organization—provides exciting games and experiences that inspire today’s K-12 students to become the STEM leaders of tomorrow. We believe every student should have the opportunity to develop their potential and fulfill their dreams and career aspirations.

She brainstorms ideas with team and volunteers, establishes partnerships with scientists, surgeons and people and corporations that do interesting things. Gail writes the grants and the storyboards for the activities, manages the projects overall, crunches lots of numbers and works with the Board to do the long term planning for Edheads. She’s always on the lookout for great new ideas and people who have them. She lives with two monster Westies (no, that is not an oxymoron) whose current science experiment is determining how many times they can dig up an apple tree before killing it.
