Young World-Changers

Please visit http://getcity.org/ to see weekly work updates from an amazing group of engineering designers who spend their after-school hours (and some of their summer) continually inventing new solutions to help their community and make the world better for all.

These are the crazily smart kids I’ve been lucky enough to hang out with for the past year and a half. Since the last time I posted a grad school update here, I’ve been spending my time learning both FROM and WITH them, under the guidance of Dr. Angela Calabrese Barton and with the help of my research partners Myunghwan Shin and Christina Restrepo Nazar. I’ve also been thinking on some new research questions as a result of this work…

For now, please take a quick peek at some of the inventions they designed, prototyped, tested and presented to the public last year below. Then check out their original VIDEOS about those inventions here: http://getcity.org/earth-day-2014/
