Eric Boen - BEST Robotics
Eric jumped in with BEST Robotics last Fall as a coach for our middle school team. His background is in technology, so he felt working with students on robotics was a natural fit. Eric's son Ethan is a 7th grader at STEM.
, Eric's role (alongside co-coach Tom Fischer) is to guide the team of middle schoolers through the season challenge, a tight six-week build, and prepare them for the competition later this month. "My favorite part of being a coach is watching the students ideate novel solutions to problems. It is also fulfilling to see leaders emerge from the group; these young leaders mentor others and help to build a stronger more cohesive team," he says.
Outside of STEM, Eric works as the Director of Technology at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. In his role, Eric leads a team to develop software and engaging interactive exhibits alongside the mission of the museum. In his free time, Eric enjoys camping and dirt biking with his family. Thank you for your time and dedication to the team, Eric!
