Viasat employee coaches sharing their love of STEM during Science Olympiad

In partnership with the Carlsbad Educational Foundation, Viasat is an eight-year sponsor of Carlsbad Unified Schools’ participation.


Viasat engineer Sarah Nimroozi didn’t discover her aptitude for engineering until she was in college. Now a Science Olympiad coach, she hopes to expose others to potential STEM careers at a much younger age.
