Michele Madison is at the forefront of an aquaponic science revolution that is breaking barriers for women and girls in STEM.
The founder of a socially-minded business aiming to spread adoption of sustainable farming practices has found her place in the field of aquaponics. The business, Farming the Future, creates an interactive STEM education for Title I schools and juvenile detention facilities through aquaponics-based revolutionary farming.
Madison is one of the 2020 Trailblazers to be honored by The Oasis Center for Women & Girls at an awards luncheon on Friday, Feb. 28.
“I am not afraid to speak out for those less fortunate and even make people uncomfortable,” Madison said. “I know that some things need to be said and [saying them] might help someone else.”
