Introducing Grace

4 Sep

Grace abandoned science and technology at fifteen, after being so bored by her physics class that she bullied her teacher into not letting her back in. Luckily, though, she somehow realized all the exciting, creative possibilities of making things and figuring out how they work, and a few years after that became an MIT engineer. She has since dedicated her life to saving bored teenagers from the horrible fate that GCSE Physics almost led her to.

Grace got involved with PEN after teaching science lessons using locally-available materials to students in Ghana with MIT D-Lab and seeing how much of a difference a practical, creative approach to teaching science made.

For PEN, Grace works somewhat on lesson development and mostly on illustration.
