My Bio

Elliott Hardy joined STEM School Highlands Ranch as an engineering teacher in August 2021. He will be teaching CAD, Manufacturing, and Architectural Design and Modeling. Elliott is also interested in being involved with the robotics competition teams, TSA, and possibly starting an astronomy club and/or offering aerospace engineering classes in the future.

Prior to joining STEM, Elliott was a mechanical engineer at Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company, where he worked on the Orion program, NASA’s next manned spacecraft. After seven years at Lockheed and a newly found passion for teaching, he decided it was time to try something new. He is excited he landed at such an awesome school as STEM!

Elliott has a Bachelor’s and Master’s of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Colorado Boulder. He also received a certificate in entrepreneurship and plans to start his own company building camper van inserts. He enjoys a number of hobbies and activities including woodworking, rock climbing, snowboarding, hiking 14ers, and reading science and space-related books.
