Maximilian Dennison was born and raised in the city of Pittsburgh. His passion is educating young people and exposing them to opportunities through meaningful learning experiences that build on traditional education. He received his BA in Political Science from Point Park University and is currently working towards my MA in Education. He’s passionate about finding ways to connect young people to computer science because of the economic opportunity it presents. That passion drives his leadership of Beta Builders, a program teaches students from City of Pittsburgh Schools how to code and write software. Now, as Digital Equity and Inclusion manager for the City of Pittsburgh, Max is turning his personal passion into a citywide commitment to equity and opportunity in STEM fields.
