Brief Biographical Sketch:

I am an MIT sophomore studying Mechanical Engineering and minoring in Computer Science and Energy Studies. Outside of school, I am on the MIT Women's Soccer Team and Solar Electric Vehicle Team. I have tutored for the past 4 years as a part of a community service program at my high school and am excited to teach in a full classroom setting. I am passionate about renewable energy, engineering challenges, and education so I can't wait to teach students about these topics during splash :)

E15514: Build Your Own Solar Powered Car in Spark 2023 (Mar. 18 - 19, 2023)
Ever wondered how to build a car that doesn't rely on gas or battery power? We'll teach you how to build your own electric solar powered car from scratch - and you'll learn some fun things about renewable energy along the way!

E15165: Designing a Sustainable Product in Fusion 360 in Splash 2022 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2022)
This will be a workshop where we walk students through the basics of fusion 360. First, we will give them a tutorial where they model a sustainable product. After the tutorial, we will give students time to develop their own design which they will submit at the end. They can vote on the best product design, and we will 3D print that part for the student to get as a prize!

E15428: Build Your Own Wind Turbine! in Splash 2022 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2022)
Have you ever looked at a windmill and wondered how it worked? Come build your own mini circuits with wind circuits, capacitors, and LEDs! This workshop will go over the current types of renewable energy such as solar and wind and how each type works. This information will be supplemented by a circuit lab where students make their own mini solar panel circuit and wind mill. It will also cover the various challenges different types of renewables are facing.
