THEGEEKGRID STUDIOS, formally known as WeDiscoverGeeks, was formed by Kat Mahoney to provide more education to parents, educators, and the community on the positive effects of today's video games, social media, and STEM Education. As a mother of three herself, two of which are high-functioning Autistic, and a Computer Science major and mental health speaker for military families, she believed the negative feedback of the new modern technology was simply due to the lack of information and even information overload.
As Mrs. Mahoney began advocating more for Gamification and Edutainment in the classrooms and mental health facilities utilizing "S.T.E.A.M (STEM+Art & Makers) due to her positive experiences working with Architects and Designers. Her experience with the concept helped her own children overcome many educational and emotional obstacles that proved invaluable to their growth and development. Through this, she Founded the PA S.T.E.A.M Fest to help bring awareness to STEAM Education in Video Games and other Electronic Entertainment that combined STEAM concepts and positively engaging streams.
In 2020, after COVID19 limited the way events and physical gatherings were held, Mrs. Mahoney formed a team of positive streamers and gamers known as the SteamDragons, the TGGS Positive Streamers, Cosplayers & Esports Team. Since COVID19 brought an onslaught of mental health issues, Mrs. Mahoney knew Electronic Entertainment was the way to reach out to the masses, having gone through emotional issues herself and utilizing video games for her own emotional recovery. Since these changes, the company has expanded worldwide which was the reason behind the re-branding. Now, known as THEGEEKGRID STUDIOS.
