STEMM Idol: Fred Lickert

For decades, Fred Lickert has seen the worst of the worst in regards to traffic accidents. That was part of his role as a traffic reconstructionist for the City of Dayton Police Department, and his current role as an accident reconstructionist with Law-Science Technologies, Inc.

On Tuesday, December 4, Lickert talked to students about the importance of STEMM in his career as part of the STEMM Idol Speaker Series.

“Part of my presentation focused on the importance of seat belts, as kids are beginning to learn to drive, I shared how Newton’s laws of motion play into a bad crash,” Lickert shared.

Lickert also told students how he uses the Pythagorean theorem in determining speeds in car crashes.

“My life is one big math word problem,” Lickert emphasized. “That’s all I do - solve story problems!”
