This story is pretty darn cool. Luke is a student who saw a need for more students getting involved in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) careers. To fix that problem, Luke started his own business, AgTechSteam, which creates agriculture and science-themed experiment boxes! How cool is that?! Luke saw a problem and built a solution. In our chat today, Luke and I talk about his inspiration behind the boxes, why he believes these boxes should be FREE, and who he looks up to.
