Head of Programming

Sachin is a senior in the class of 2021 at Millburn High School.  He is the lead programmer, website, and app designer of ReachSTEM.  Sachin is a brilliant programmer and mathematician, having scored high enough on the AMC 10 test to qualify for the AIME, a very difficult math test.  Without Sachin, ReachSTEM would not have the amount of influence it does now.

Fernando Didier


Head of Operations

Fernando is a senior at Millburn High School class of 2021.  His main focus is to determine what makes the cut in the live demonstrations and what doesn't.  Fernando is the reason for our huge success with our first event.  Going forward, Fernando will be a valuable asset for connecting with other schools and growing the organization.  His continued effort towards getting more kids into STEM is always appreciated.
