Introducing Maddie

4 Sep

Hi all! I’m Maddie. I’m a mechanical engineer – for real now, apparently! (I just graduated from MIT Undergrad.)

Working with PEN is my Dream Job: engineering, education, energy, fun people… For me, the best parts about engineering are constantly learning, tinkering and building cool projects, trying new things, working with great people, and hacking at problems that you don’t know how to solve, but know you can figure out with enough time and energy. And trying to share how fun and exciting that is with other students!

In an effort to postpone joining the so-called Real World, I am now attempting to work on PEN full-time. I’ve spent much of this summer working with Anna, Heather, and Albie at the TTI Fab Lab in Ghana, and meeting great people from all over the world there, at Maker Faire Kumasi, and at Fab7 in Lima, Peru.

I am now back in Boston, and excited to keep learning, developing PEN, and exploring hands-on education and fun engineering projects!

    Great work Maddie – so maybe the Kids in dev. countries could participate in
    experiments via video on skype, the idea being to let them control part of the
    experiment by awaiting their instructions, with a kid in a dev. country (perhaps a handicapped kid with fewer playmates) putting items together…

    Hope your rikshah designs are zipping along…..hey you promised to find me an
    older engineering or softw. engineering date…(42+ ) is a must….
    Cheers, M. (we spoke at Kendall on way to stud. center)…
