Introducing Myself & Seeking Series Ideas

My name is Emily Holdman. I run a venture called The Remarkables, which connects communities (i.e. a school or class) around the world with Remarkables (i.e. inventors, Olympians, entrepreneurs) for 45-minute live interviews via video stream. Instructors are able to humanize concepts (i.e. Have a Top Chef All-Star explain the value of geometry, physics and chemistry), and the students are able to walk away feeling as though they…See More

About Me or Reason for Joining the GEC:
I am the founder of The Remarkables, an organization that connects communities to remarkable people for live interviews, using video streaming technology.

We work with schools to allow learners the opportunity to personally interact with STEM experts (i.e. Top Chef, archaeologist, inventors), professional athletes, Olympians, entrepreneurs and more. By using video streaming technology, we are able to remove geographic barriers and dramatically reduce the associated costs.

Please reach out with any questions or thoughts on what we're doing. We firmly believe that by exposing students to Remarkables' ideas, experiences and passions, we can humanize concepts and help to motivate them to find their own way to impact the world.
