President

Avneet Hira close

avneet.hira@worldspeed.org

I am a doctoral student in the School of Engineering Education at Purdue University. My research includes K-12 education and first year engineering in light of the engineering design process, and the educational potential of digital fabrication labs. My current work is inspired by my ideology to make engineering and its education more just, by upholding ideals of equity and access. I have earned a B.E. in Aeronautical Engineering from PEC University of Technology, and an M.S. in Aerospace Systems Engineering from Purdue University. As an aerospace engineering student, I have worked on building aero-models, theoretical unsteady aerodynamics (Micro-aerial vehicles and wind turbines), and airspace systems navigation for flying cars.

Valentina Marulandaclose

valentina.marulanda@worldspeed.org

I am a fourth-year Electronic Engineering student at Universidad Nacional de Colombia, born and raised in Bogota, Colombia’s capital, and biggest city. I have a great interest and passion in education, which originated because I believe it to be the greatest source of the much-needed change in society’s way of viewing the world. As a student, I’ve had the opportunity of participating in many projects, from electronic cribs for busy parents to a rocket, and therefore have experienced both the thrill of the system working and the tediousness of redacting a report afterwards; I believe this collaboration between theory and practice is the key to foment curiosity and interest in people of all ages. I love reading, I ride my bike to school on most days, and I have a great passion for learning new languages and meeting different cultures, I also enjoy writing on occasion and letting my imagination run free.
