WaPo: Katie Ledecky uses Olympic platform to launch math, science program for kids

Five-time Olympic champion Katie Ledecky takes the analytical part of her swimming seriously, and wants to get the next generation thinking the same way.

From today’s Washington Post:

With fewer than 200 days to go until the Tokyo Games, Ledecky took a brief break from training to attend CES, one of the world’s largest technology conferences, where she announced a new online program aimed at middle school students, encouraging them to pursue careers in STEM fields. She partnered with Panasonic to launch the “Dive into STEM Education” initiative, which will debut in five cities this year, including Washington, where the 22-year old Ledecky was born.
