Infosys Foundation USA Partners with CBS’s Mission Unstoppable to Spotlight Three Computer Science Teachers Inspiring

First of Three New Episodes Produced by Hearst Media Production Group and Lyda Hill Philanthropies’ IF/THEN Initiative to Debut Saturday, February 19

Infosys Foundation USA and CBS’s multi award-winning television series Mission Unstoppable are teaming up to spotlight three teachers from the Foundation’s Pathfinders Institute program who are dedicated to inspiring young students to pursue careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math).

Hosted by Miranda Cosgrove (iCarly, Despicable Me) and executive produced by Cosgrove and Academy Award-winning actress Geena Davis, Mission Unstoppable will present the first of the three new episodes on Saturday, February 19. The first episode will feature Lisa Moe, an innovative fourth grade teacher at Chino Valley Unified School District in Chino, California. An alumna of the Pathfinders Institute program, Moe inspires her students to break barriers in computer science, technology, engineering and math. Two additional Pathfinders educators, Maria Aguilar from Sacramento, California and Dr. Kellie Taylor, an elementary school teacher in the Boise, Idaho school district will be featured later this season. Mission Unstoppable spotlights diverse, female STEM professionals in an impactful way, in an effort to break long-held stereotypes and encourage adolescent girls to pursue STEM careers.

Lisa Moe was introduced to the Infosys Foundation USA through its Pathfinders Institute, an immersive professional development program for K-12 teachers in computer science and maker education. Moe believes positive affirmations motivate her students at Chino Valley Unified School District and every morning recites them with her class, including positive messages such as “Yes I Can; Be Kind and Let’s Go Change the World.” She uses fun, creative ways, even in a virtual learning setting, to teach kids how to build, code and bring their creative ideas and innovative projects to life. Virtual learning has been incredibly difficult for both educators and students but Moe is still able to teach her students how to build, code and bring their creative ideas and projects to life!

Infosys Foundation USA is committed to increasing access to computer science and maker education among underrepresented groups, which includes girls and women. The Foundation invests heavily in professional development for K-12 teachers in the United States. Out of a mutual interest to highlight the pivotal role that teachers play in shaping young girls’ views on career opportunities in a technology-enabled world, the Foundation is thrilled to continue its partnership with Hearst Media Production Group for a second year.

“Our goal is to highlight the importance of inclusion and showcase diverse role models for young girls interested in technology through this partnership with Hearst Media Production Group and the Mission Unstoppable team,” said Kate Maloney, Executive Director of the Infosys Foundation USA. “We are excited to spotlight Lisa Moe and the other two Pathfinders Institute educators who are using computer science and STEM to inspire their students.”

“We believe that If She Can See It, Then She Can Be It,” said Nicole Small, CEO of Lyda Hill Philanthropies and co-founder of the IF/THEN Initiative. “Representation and visibility in the sciences matter to young girls who need teachers and mentors like Lisa to inspire them to become next generation of diverse female STEM pioneers.”

Moe was recently named the 2020 Edwin Carr recipient in Educational Technology through California State University, Fullerton and the 2021 IACUE Blended and Online Educator of the Year. She has presented on growth mindset, student engagement, and social emotional learning through the use of technology for several years at large educational conferences. Her personal philosophy of education is that children want to learn and grow, provided they are given a stimulating environment along with a supportive teacher
