Ed Mansouri is the architect behind OrangeSTEM.
Ed's mission for OrangeSTEM is simple:
BUILD AN EXTRAORDINARY WEATHER INFORMATION PLATFORM FOR CITIZENS OF FLORIDA
Ed had wanted to be a Meteorologist since the age of 6. He earned Bachelors degrees in both Meteorology and Engineering from Penn State University and a Masters degree in Meteorology from Florida State University.
In 1999 while teaching Meteorology at FSU, Ed developed a Learning Management System (LMS) named Educator. An LMS is a program that enables courses and academic programs to be offered via the Internet.
Ed started a company called Ucompass that marketed and further developed Educator and went on to serve over 4 million students.
In 2015, Ed launched WeatherSTEM, the company behind OrangeSTEM as his heart was pulling him strongly toward a career in Meteorology.
In 2016, Ed sold Ucompass and all its assets so he could focus all his energies on WeatherSTEM.
