Max Greenwald



Max is the founder of IgniteSTEM, a national nonprofit organization that educates principals of K12 public schools on project-based learning. IgniteSTEM has one goal: to have every student in the country attend a hack-a-thon before they turn 18. Through conferences and trainings for educators, they've reached over 100,000 students since it's inception in 2015.

Max received a B.A. degree from Princeton University (2017) where he majored in Computer Science and Public Policy.
