Meet Kennedy Lawrence, an intern at UCF's PedsAcademy at Nemours Children's Hospital, which prepares future teachers to provide tailored #STEM education to children with chronic and complex medical issues.

"I feel confident working with children with disabilities, adapting to create meaningful experiences for them. UCF really prepared me for my internship, like in my math courses. They pushed me far out of my comfort zone, encouraging me to be accountable in the ways I help my students make sense of math."
