About this event

Beta Box Delivers Design Thinking


Sean Maroni is the CEO and founder of Betabox and he believes hands-on, experiential learning is the missing ingredient required to prepare students for the complex, uncertain future before us all.

Betabox offers an immersive experience in design thinking and rapid prototyping in the form of a fully equipped lab delivered to your doorstep. They offer ‘onsite field trips’ to public and private schools in Betabox Mobile Tech Labs, with many engagements fully funded by industry partners.

Their approach has been to lower the per student cost of quality hands-on learning. Our belief is this economic shift will increase the demand and practicality of hands-on learning when compared to the traditional ‘Sage on a Stage’ model. This leveraged effect could redefine the trajectories of careers for millions of young people around the world.

A 2014 graduate of NCSU with a BS in Mechanical engineering, Sean founded Beta Box in 3015 and cofounded Nest coworking, Raleigh NC in 2016.

Before founding Beta Box, Sean interned at NASA as the Langley Research Center in Norfolk VA, where he created a virtual networking interface designed to connect engineers and improve digital communication using 3D immersion technology.

In 2013 he developed and researched products for the energy sector at TE Connectivity. There he designed a system for simulating Aeolian vibration in above ground power applications and was involved in the development of custom-built manufacturing equipment. He worked with the CIO to improve the corporate innovation culture.
