Connor Venteicher

STEM Curriculum Writer

Connor Venteicher graduated from the University of Minnesota in May of 2016 with a bachelor’s degree in Chemistry and a minor in Management. He is currently working at the University of Minnesota for Dr. Mona Minkara as her access assistant. He is her “eyes” for anything and everything pertaining to her daily computational chemistry research.

He heard about ETI when Mona started volunteering as the STEM program advisor. Through working with Mona, he has seen first-hand just how amazing she is as a scientist and mentor, despite her blindness. He decided to start volunteering for ETI in an effort to encourage kids everywhere to achieve their dreams, and to show them that any obstacle can be overcome through motivation and determination.
