Y-Prize 2013-2014 Winner Emily Plumb

Emily Plumb, a Mechanical Engineering Masters student in the School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS), is the winner of the 2013-2014 Y-Prize Competition. She is pictured here with her GRASP Lab Tech Consultant Gavin Kenneally and Wharton Business Consultant Isabelle Park.

Emily is a passionate advocate of STEM education for young children, and her enthusiasm showed clearly throughout her presentation at Monday night’s Grand Finale.
