Greetings, my name is Christopher Polivema and I am the Site Coordinator for the AIS Site in Hopi, AZ. I have been working for the AIS STEAM program for the past 6 years. The first 3 years I was part of the AIS Site in Tuba where I started as a floater and later started the AIS Site in Hopi. My main goal is to give our Native American youth the opportunities and to introduce them to STEAM. Working with AIS Prep has given me the skills in planning educational activities, team communication, and being a positive role model for our youth - because they are the future. I really enjoy working with our Hopi, AZ staff and especially our students; just seeing the smiles on their faces make everything that much better about AIS Prep. I am so proud and grateful to be a part of this awesome program.
