Throughout a career spanning research, policy, and practice; she has fostered innovation, systems thinking, and systemic reform creating an ecology of community transformation.

In 1999, Lowenstien launched a youth leadership initiative entitled ‘‘NetGeneration Youth” (NGY) to address the digital divide with a dual mission to cultivate Youth as Global Citizens, STEM Ambassadors, and Media Literate Leaders in a Digital Age; and to empower educators as designers of 21st century curriculum. Three model best practice programs evolved: in 2007 NASA ISS invited a demonstration program for the International Space Station; in 2010 the US Department of State funded expansion of the program through their Global Connections Exchange Africa initiative, and in 2011 Innovations for Education supported a STEM Leadership Challenge engaging the NGY Global Community of Practice from across the US, South Africa, Zambia and Uganda.

According to OGTV founder, “Ronnie will work closely with me to manage the growing number of relevant partnerships and collaborations we recognize will be required to deploy a full scale national and international STEM engagement and empowerment media program. “Lowenstien says about joining the OGTV team, “the scope of my experiences in research, policy, practice and advocacy for underserved communities convinces me of the value of OGTV to catalyze collaborations and create synergies that will enable all of us to achieve together what no one organization can do alone!”
