Hey there! My name’s Kristina and I am the Program Manager at Young Makers. I am a fourth year Mechanical Engineering and Computing Technology student at the University of Ottawa. Some of my past projects have included developing an exoskeleton hand for people with decreased muscle strength, and developing an inexpensive pulse oximeter to be used in developing countries. I am passionate about the ways in which technology is evolving, and the ways tech can be used to make a difference in the world!
Hey! My name’s Nick and I am a Youth Worker at The Door Youth Centre. I have been involved with 3D printing for about three years now. When Young Makers was first launched at The Door I was a youth attending the centre, and took a leadership role with 3D printing. I have been volunteering every week for the past three years to teach the youth at The Door about 3D printing. I hope to make a difference within the community with this amazing initiative!
