Bio

Carrie is a high school senior that has a passion for design. She loves to learn how the components of the world around her work and think about how she can innovate them. Carrie was a national winner of the NASA HUNCH Design and Prototyping competition in 2019 for her work toward the improvement of a radiation protection jacket. She also worked as an engineering intern at Billings TrailNet where she designed and milled signage and helped to create the Skyline Trail. Carrie volunteered at the Billings Public Library in the technology lab helping kids learn about robotics and computer software. After noticing the lack of activities at her school, Carrie founded the Girls in STEM Club at the Billings Career Center; this club has been able to listen to numerous female STEM professionals, participate in hands on activities, and give presentations to middle school students. One of her favorite projects to participate in has been the Go Baby Go initiative in which she modified ride-on cars to help mobilize children with limited mobility. After high school, Carrie plans to pursue a college degree in Mechanical Engineering. She is extremely fascinated with satellites and unmanned aircraft and hopes to continue to learn about them through projects in college and in her career. She knows how massive of an impact satellite signaling and imaging has created in our society and she hopes to leave a positive impact on the field in her career.
