Amanda Zhang, our former high school intern, is back in Chicago for a couple of weeks before she goes back to Harvard for her second semester. Past summer, Amanda worked on two different projects. One was a research question analysing and looking for trends in data from 'smart' home electric meters. The second was a short 2-week digital manufacturing program called 'In the loop', where she got to design her own LED-lamp structure and connect it to energy data.
These two weeks, Amanda and Radha (post-doc for education outreach) will try how to create new modules and curriculum units for the same class next summer!
