And as co-host of Design Squad Nation
, she's helping kids dream it, build it, and live it. Meet engineer, Judy Lee
As a kid, Judy loved taking things apart to see how they worked. That love eventually led to a mechanical engineering degree and a range of cool projects. Judy has designed children's toys, created medical devices, and developed systems to provide clean drinking
water where there was none.
Impressive, yes? We wish we could take all the credit for finding her, but before she landed this sweet DSN
gig, Judy was already a star. (Check out her profile
for Engineer Your Life
, an awesome initiative to get high school girls interested in engineering.) Judy will also soon be featured in NOVA's online series, Secret Life of Scientists and Engineers
, as was another Design Squad hero
who may look familiar...
Judy now has her dream job, working as a product designer at IDEO, an international design and innovation firm in Palo Alto, CA. When she's not on-air brainstorming and building, Judy can be found in San Francisco remodeling her new home, growing fresh fruits and veggies in her garden, riding a big wheel down the nation's windiest street, or playing with her pug, Rosie.
