Phillip Eaglin: Founder and CEO
After 21 years as a middle and high school science teacher, Dr. Phillip Eaglin founded Changing Expectations, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides STEM programs for K-12 teachers and students from disadvantaged communities in Texas.
Phillip saw firsthand the success of “neighborhood science" programs in 2004 when he began using creative activities to educate students from his garage. Philip realized community-based, coding-focused groups can educate teachers and students on the power of technology. Out of that passionate experiment, Changing Expectations was born.
