STEAM Student Scholarship Award Winner: Christian Piper

Christian Piper, 12th Grade 
Southern Lehigh High School 
Southern Lehigh School District

Christian Piper began an interest in STEAM as a young child building paper airplanes and playing with the robotic dinosaur at the Da Vinci Science Center. He also experienced a program with a surgery robot at the science center which opened his eyes to what robots are capable of. In middle school he taught himself basic electronics and went on mastering skills in 3D printing. This year he is the lead programmer for his Robotics Team. Christian plans to pursue a degree in Robotic Engineering with the ultimate goal of owning his own business. Along the way, he wants to continue mentoring students who share his passion. According to Christian, “STEAM isn’t just a word, it’s a lifestyle. Ever since I was ‘bitten’ by the bug as a young child, I’ve loved STEAM.” 

In addition to the Robotics Team, Christian is a Teen Counselor, President of the Student Council, and a member of the National Honor Society. He is also a tutor, Little League assistant coach, and a volunteer counselor at Camp Invention.
