Hailed the “New Einstein” by her fans, and named the “Modern Day Hidden Figure” by People Magazine and Newsweek, Olympia LePoint is a former rocket scientist, an award-winning author and TED speaker of the talk “Reprogramming Your Brain to Overcome Fear.” LePoint helped launch 28 NASA Space Shuttle missions into space. She authorized multi-million-dollar engine tests and secured human safety for NASA astronauts. Her Mission Control Room desk is now a science exhibit at the California Science Center in Los Angeles. Today, she inspires young people to pursue STEM careers, and she empowers professionals on how to reprogram the brain to overcome fear and make effective decisions for the future.
She shows how to make decisions regarding emerging technologies, such as AI and Quantum
Communications. She reveals how to develop innovation using faith, science, ethics and mental
integrity. Her talks and books are at the forefront of innovation in a variety of industries, from space, energy, artificial intelligence, computing, STEM education, neuro-diversity and neuroplasticity, overcoming trauma, reprogramming the brain, executive leadership, brain-computer mapping with AI.
Olympia LePoint won The 2004 Boeing Company Professional Excellence Award, and The 2003 National Engineer of the Year “Modern Day Technology Leader” Award. She won The 2017 Paul Harris Fellow Rotary International Business Award; and the 2023 IRWIN Award at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books for her Answers Unleashed® science book series. She won the 2023 Top 100 Women of The Future, “Emerging Technology Leader” Award for science news broadcasts seen by 28 million viewers.
Now, LePoint tours as a speaker and teaches a Research Methods class as a Professor at California State University Northridge, in the Africana Studies Department. There she teaches diversity and inclusion with data, and she explains how data ethics will shape the future for women and people of color. She also teaches an Emerging Technologies and Political Science class at Santa Monica College Emeritus Program. There she explains emerging technologies and the new laws for ethical and safe use.
In her youth, Olympia LePoint overcame severe poverty, sexual abuse, childhood trauma within South Central Los Angeles, plus failing math scores by reprogramming her mind with science, which led her to graduate Top 5 from a 6,500-graduating class with degrees in Applied Mathematics. After working on NASA engines for nearly a decade, she realized someone had to prepare the next generation to solve the world’s most pressing problems using STEM. As a result, she wrote her Answers Unleashed ® science book series to inspire a new global generation of people to overcome personal challenges and develop innovation with faith and science-based thinking. Her books focus on neuro-diversity and effective decision-making.
A future-thinking and effective decision-making thought leader, Olympia LePoint has a TED talk approaching 2 million views, and a Motivation2Study talk approaching another 2 million views online. In 2019, she spoke to 6,000 artificial intelligence engineers about diversity and inclusion at the 2019 SAS Global Technology Forum, and to 3,000 women technology leaders during the SAS Women’s Day conference.
She explains innovation with her Quantum Deciding® decision-making method read in her Answers Unleashed® book series. In 2021 through 2023, she is seen on NBC News, CBS News, ABC News, FOX News, Yahoo, Newsweek, iHeart Radio, and Cheddar News speaking about emerging technologies. She speaks on NASA moon missions, SpaceX and Blue Origin commercial space launches, Open AI Chat GPT, BARD Generative Artificial Intelligence with biometric recognition benefits and dangers. She explains pros and cons: from AI hallucinations in algorithms, and U.S. Copyright infringements during SAG actors and WGA writers strikes, to AI issues in U.S. school teaching, and bias in facial recognition for women and people of color. She explains AI benefits for future quantum computing methods and quantum internet innovation for future hologram communications. She shares the latest innovations from the
world’s top experts, and how humans can be ethical and safe with emerging technologies.
