Barbara started with Saturday Academy as an SVP Encore fellow following retirement from a 25-year engineering career at Intel. As one of the few “technical females” working in process development, she managed an electron microscopy lab that analyzed the atomic arrangement and composition of newly invented materials for next-generation microprocessors. Her passion is to bring more girls into technical fields. In 2015, she began the Girls Engage Technology program in the interest of exciting young girls in the areas of computer science and engineering. As an SA instructor she has taught electron microscopy and Scratch programming and has built water rocket launchers, hovercrafts and Rube Goldberg devices with hundreds of girls.
