Hi, I'm Khushbu Kshirsagar. I am an Engineer, Educator and Researcher.
I also think of myself as a Prototyper and a seeker of mathematical inventiveness.
I'm interested in creating hands-on learning experiences using Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics in informal settings like museums and playgrounds.
I design educational technologies that take one away from the computer screen, are independent of an internet connection and easily accessible.
As a prototyper, I find myself more intrigued by the making process than the final product and I find it as expressive as story-telling.
I'm currently studying S.T.E.M. Education at Tufts University where I also work as a researcher at the Center for Engineering Education and Outreach (CEEO).
I have experiences of working as an engineer at Bosch Ltd, managing a maker space in New Delhi (India) and designing S.T.E.M based toys for a startup organization.
I simply love dogs, playing basketball and instant noodles!
