About Olivia

My name is Olivia Baldwin, a future robotics engineer, national and state award-winning essay author and a STEM-obsessed dancing queen. I’m currently holding a national pageant title as Little Miss Princess of America where I get to travel the United States sharing my passion for STEM education through my platform, The Princess Reading Lab with Olivia. I host experiment demonstrations, hand out free STEM-related books and STEM kits, and help teachers across the nation create MakerSpaces in their classrooms for hands on STEM learning. Last year, I submitted a proclamation to have Oklahoma Stem Day on November 8th and it was granted!

As a competitive dancer, you can always catch me moving and grooving in my lab at home. Outside the lab, I’m a working actress, creator of the Luggage of Hope project to help Oklahoma’s foster care youth, volunteer with the Little Read Wagon, total book nerd and a macaroni and cheese connoisseur.

You can follow all of my pageant, volunteering, acting and STEM adventures on Instagram @iamlivbaldwin or @poa_littlemiss, Facebook: Little Miss Princess of America and view all my experiment episodes on my YouTube channel: The Princess Reading Lab. Don’t forget, it’s never too late to support and encourage the innovative minds of tomorrow.
