Kendall Ronzano, local Santa Cruz teen, just spoke at TEDx Youth@Monterey. Her topic may not be about 3D fabrication but she exemplified the maker spirit and is an inspiration to adults and youth alike. Watch her talk about building a tiny house on wheels. She writes:
NerdGirlHomes is a project inspired from one of my childhood goals. My parents have always encouraged me to dream big, and one idea that really stuck with me is that I want to learn to build a house from the ground up. I’ve always loved building things. When I was little I created contraptions and structures out of Knex, Legos, Playmobile, and much more. I’ve learned to weld, use plasma cutters, power tools and to light the wood stove with a blow torch!
