She received her MA from Tufts University in Museum Education and worked at the Rochester Museum and Science Center as well as the Corning Museum of Glass. As Tech Studio program manager, Lydia creates and presents informal computer science and engineering activities that encourage students and visitors to think like engineers to design and test a prototype solution to a challenge of the day. Now in it's eleventh year, the Design Challenges program has served over 600,000 visitors at the museum. Lydia is particularly interested in the intersection of "maker" programming and engineering education as well as emerging research on engaging girls in engineering design.
