Board of Directors
Founder, President and Chief Executive Officer
Maximilian Goetz is an incoming freshman at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.. He founded Robotics for All when he was a high school freshman at Henry. M Gunn High School in Palo Alto, CA. While volunteering for Reading Partners at Mariano Castro Elementary, Maximilian realized the lack of after school enrichment programs at the school, particularly in the fields of STEM. From there, he built Robotics for All from ground up, teaching its first classes and eventually expanding it into a multi state 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. In addition to Robotics for All, Maximilian is a student advisor to Congresswoman Anna Eshoo, a lead legislative aide to Councilman Greg Tanaka, and an online English teacher to students in China. In the past, Maximilian has volunteered at the YMCA, Wizbots, and was a member of the Palo Alto Youth Council. Maximilian has served over 2,000 community service hours since his freshman year of high school, and is honored to be a two time President's Gold Community Service Award recipient. In his free time, Maximilian is an avid aviation geek, enjoys photography and biking around town. www.maximiliangoetz.com
