Women in Science: Technology Research and Development
Special Presentation by Alexandra Sugurel at the Fulbright Educational Advising Center (FEAC)
"Is there no limit to what women in the science field can do?" is the question the public was left pondering after Alexandra Sugurel’s talk at the EducationUSA/Fulbright Educational Advising Center in Bucharest on July 16th. Alexandra Sugurel is a former EducationUSA/FEAC advisee who won a scholarship to attend George Washington University several years ago. Ever since her graduation, Alexandra has kept coming back to FEAC to share her experience and wise advice.
Alexandra, as those present came to discover, initially wanted to major in Fine Arts but eventually majored in Engineering and Spanish as well. As a student at the George Washington University in Washington, DC, she worked as a teaching assistant in the Computer Science Department. This opportunity ultimately led to her being introduced to the wonderful mix between technology and special needs education, and later opening the path for research at MIT. Having always had an exquisite connection with children, she felt emotionally invested in this topic. Therefore, when the opportunity to program a robot for this purpose presented itself, Alexandra collaborated with a team of experts in fields such as psychology, engineering, and special education to customize the NAO robot as a powerful educational tool. NAO is a humanoid robot which, among different social applications, also aids children with autism, helping them conquer everyday obstacles.Read more...
