About Jonas (he/him)

Jonas Andersen is currently pursuing his Associate of Science at Front Range Community College in Westminster, Colorado. He has always had a passion for biology and chemistry, stemming from his interest when he was a Boy Scout. He found that he enjoyed the conservation and nuclear science merit badges the most. He plans to transfer to Colorado State University to complete his Bachelor’s in Biochemistry and then pursue a Master’s in a similar field. As a Geo-Launchpad intern, his work will focus on hydrology and using video editing software to process data about the speed of flash floods. He is excited for his future in STEM!
