Prior to joining Lemelson-MIT, Edwin taught middle school mathematics in New York City public schools. He implemented unique curricula to incorporate engineering principles into core math content, providing young women, Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and other disinvested communities with an opportunity to apply their mathematical learnings to topics and research fields more relevant to their daily lives.
Edwin also led a racial equity committee for his school community to support staff in implementing equitable teaching practices in their classrooms. Edwin’s passion to develop solutions to remedy historic inequities is derived from his love for STEM fields. He aspires to create a better world through STEM programming and Invention Education.
