Hello from Jacob, Cormac, Matthew and Michael, WPI 2019

Hello to the ITP!

We are very excited to be working with the programme over the next few months and hopefully creating an amazing online exhibition! Find out more about our project via the link: https://bmtrainingprog.wpi-returns-bristol-online-exhibition

As we will be getting in touch with the network in the next week to ask for advice via an online survey, we wanted to give you a little more information about each of us:

Cormac Lynch-Collier is a computer science student primarily interested in web programming. He is also pursuing a minor in history, where one of his favorite classes was on the British empire through the years. Cormac is looking forward to combining his programming background with his interest in history to create the online exhibition.

Jacob Koslow is an aerospace engineering student with a strong interest in rocket propulsion techniques. Aside from his academics, Jacob loves to spend his free time playing the trumpet in the Jazz and Concert Band at WPI. He is excited to experience London for the first time and plans to utilize his technical skills combined with an appreciation for the arts to leave a positive impact on the project.

Michael Sidler is a robotics engineering student interested in embedded systems. In his free time, he enjoys playing percussion in the WPI pep band, as well as designing innovative robotic instruments. Michael is looking to explore the museums of London and hopes to bring his enthusiasm and problem solving experience to the project.

Matthew Puentes is a computer science student with a strong love of museums from his childhood in the District of Columbia. He spends his free time mostly working with his fraternity and programming games for his website. He’s looking forward to using his website design and human-computer interaction experience on this project.

As a team we can’t wait to get to London and start exploring the city. The British Museum is full of so much history; it will be amazing to be immersed in that environment. We are excited to get involved with the network and speak with ITP fellows soon!
