Xyla strives to be the woman she wish she had to look up to growing up: passionate and invested in what she does technically, but also maintaining femininity and external interests like fashion and art. She prides herself in being the one in a dress at robotic design reviews, and the one blur of pink in the machine shop. Xyla is a TA at tbx and a little obsessed with changing the way we educate our youth especially in regards to engineering and making.
Andrew is a firm believer in making engineering fun. He spends most of his time building random projects he found on the internet or making holographic manatees for a few laughs. Andrew thinks that shop class needs to make a comeback, and that everyone should be able to express themselves through making. As a Biomedical Engineer, he hopes to finally build something truly useful, even if that means trading in his Legos.
