AnnMarie Thomas is the Executive Director of the Maker Education Initiative which is creating more opportunities for young people to make, and, by making, build confidence, foster creativity, and spark interest in science, technology, engineering, math, the arts—and learning as a whole. Previously, AnnMarie was a professor in the Engineering and Engineering Education programs at the University of St. Thomas, where she co-founded the Center for Pre-Collegiate Engineering Education, and a faculty member at Art Center College of Design. At UST, AnnMarie and her research students developed Squishy Circuits, a method which uses conductive and nonconductive play dough to sculpt circuits, particularly with young students. She has an SB in Ocean Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a MS and PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering from the California Institute of Technology.
