Episode Summary
Orietta's STEM Story starts with a story about her not getting into preschool because couldn't count. But it also is a great illustration of her perseverance and her dad's love that he taught her to count. Her love of math began then and carried her through to Spain and around the world. I love that she never stopped. She is a true testament that STEM is universal and is for everyone.
