Jeanette is an engineering and technology educator, educator consultant and homeschool parent living in Sugar Land, Texas. Together with her husband, Mike Hinkle, she started Techno Chaos, a STEM education center with the mission to inspire learning and innovating and thereby build creative individuals and tech-savvy communities.
Jeanette is a Texas A&M graduate with a bachelors in Chemical Engineering. She has worked in the energy, online trading and telecommunications industries in roles such as reseach technology integration, technology analyst, instructor, project / product manager and business consultant. After working in these industries Jeanette and Mike became convinced there was a significant need for K-12 students to relearn the creativity and opportunity possible within the STEM career fields and to better prepare them for that.
Jeanette and Mike have two sons in homeschool programs, and enjoy being entrepreneurs in a business where they can apply a wide range of creative and inventive energies. They organize large learning events such as Houston Mini Maker Faire and the Maker Exhibition at Comicpalooza, and travel extensively within the US with their sons when they are able to get away on vacations.
