Discover. Create. Advance.

DISCOVER.CREATE.ADVANCE: Karl Wendt is a teacher, a student, an entrepreneur and a Maker, through and through. He’s finishing up a PhD in education at Harvard and recently snagged first place in the Yale Education Leadership Conference Business Plan competition for his startup, Discover Create Advance (DCA), which aims to offer a web-based solution for creating engaging project-based STEM learning projects. No collection of blue-blood degrees will slow him from taking every day objects--from plastic soda bottles to hair driers--and incorporating them into science and learning projects. (Check out his dissection of a hair dryer).

In the DIY pavilion, Karl wil be showing his Beta Bot, an autonomous underwater “mood robot” made of a plastic cookie jar, and sharing ideas about how to put Bots into class.
