Congratulations to Emily Plumb, 2013-2014 Y-Prize WInner!
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. Before a panel of judges and a standing-room-only audience, she pitched her business plan: TRHex, a teaching robot hexapod designed to give kids hands-on experience with physics and engineering concepts.
