Which has allowed students to explore some of the amazing work and projects MIT students and professors are currently working on, while prompting and inspiring a range of student projects in schools across Nord Anglia (including TBS!)
One of the MIT Challenge superheroes, which many students will have heard about in regards to ‘wearable tech’ and ‘supernatural’, is a certain Richard Fineman, who is ‘’able to measure and understand a body in motion in unprecedented ways.” (news.mit.edu, 2018). He is currently working on ways to improve performance of space suits for astronauts and has recently successful argued his doctorate thesis at MIT!
Richard is scheduled to attend the EU/Middle East STEAM festival in Warsaw from June 10-14, 2019. He will talk about the ‘MIT mindset’ during the festival’s opening ceremony at Sadyba Cinema City ‘#NAEMIT Talks: Preparing the Pioneers of Tomorrow’ and will also deliver 2 days of workshops on wearable tech for the participant students.
Richard will no doubt bring about an enriched learning experience for all students involved and I am sure we can all gain great insights into the MIT way, the work he does and how he approaches problems.
