Shayla works as an engineer and teaches at the National STEM Academy in her spare time. She received her bachelor’s of science degrees in Aerospace Engineering and Physics from Tuskegee University and a Master’s of Science Degree in Systems Engineering with a concentration in space systems from the Air Force Institute of Technology. Shayla participates in professional development for teachers and volunteers year-round to support educating people of all ages. She balances between being a mother of two and an active advocate of STEAM with her new non-profit STEAM Unlimited where she develops events that incorporate the “ARTS” in the sciences. She looks forward to continuing her knowledge in research and the testing field of the upper atmosphere and beyond as well as developing educational entertainment with cartoons, movies, and public shows that are not so science fiction.
