I am Valentina, I am originally from Italy, but I live and work in London.
I am currently working as a Support Engineer for Learning Innovation, but I will start a new job soon... And I will work more closely around MakerEd. My background is in Educational Sciences, so it's mainly pedagogical, but I enjoy technologies!
I have attended several Makers events across Europe (Maker Faires and Fab10), I collaborate from time to time with local makers here in London and I am interested in the way MakerEd could revolutionise formal education. I prototyped an example of touch sensor bit, before it was released bit Bare Conductive and littleBits - of course!
If I could be a bit... I'd love to be the Neopixel string bit... Because I love colours! So thank you @Philip_Verbeek for creating it!
I am glad to be part of this amazing community and I look forward to collaborating with you!
Have a lovely "maker" day!
