About Us

Maurice Womack

Engineer, Educator, Entrepreneur

Maurice Womack has over 15 years experience as a mechanical engineer. Maurice has held positions at Battelle, the Defense Logistics Agency, and MS Consultants. While at Battelle, his role as a research engineer afforded him the opportunity to design and develop advanced energetic systems and security technology for many agencies within the U.S. Department of Defense. Currently, Maurice is a lead engineer for the Defense Logistics Agency. He was also an adjunct instructor of Engineering Technology at Columbus State Community College (CSCC). His position at CSCC gave him great insight into student interest in engineering and he has implemented several SIMPLR® lessons in his classroom with great success.

Maurice has had a passion for engineering and technology since he was a child in Youngstown, OH. He was exposed, at a young age, to great science fiction series such as Star Trek® and Star Wars® and they inspired him to dream of creating the future. Maurice became interested in robotics by watching Transformers, GoBots, and Voltron; therefore, he understands the need to utilize Sci-Fi-Com to attract, inform, and inspire kids to imagine the future and to instill, in them, a passion for STEAM.
