Katie is a high school senior. Ever since she was little, she’s always been fascinated by how things work. She is curious about anything and everything from bicycles, computers, and the movement of joints in the human body. She enjoys spending her spare time dismantling various gadgets around her house to study their inner workings: Most recently, her dad’s gaming PC and old CD player. She also loves building small mechanical contraptions out of cardboard. Her favorite tool is her trusty purple glue gun. She hopes to study mechanical or biomedical engineering (or both!) in college. In the future, she would love to design and build bionic limbs. She hopes that her involvement in PaperMech will inspire other girls to become as curious as she is about machines.
