A Busy Chair

Our Chair, Cheryl Heller, has not been in her chair much this summer. She spoke at TEDxFargo on the power of words (and fell in love with the town).

She judged the Qualcomm Invent-Off in San Francisco, a competition between two teams challenged to use technology to save a life (episodes can be seen here).

And she conducted a workshop for Chinese Social Entrepreneurs at Harvard Seed, about which you can read a brief story here.

This month, she heads to Ecuador, where Rodrigo Muñoz ’16 is now a professor at the Universidad San Francisco de Quito. While there, she will be lecturing, conducting a workshop, judging a hackathon, being taught about the local flora and fauna, and visiting the university’s lab in Tiputini in the Amazon and some of the projects that are undertaking with indigenous people there.
