Andrew Barry, Ph.D.
Andy B fell in love with autonomous drones by flying them for his Ph.D. at MIT. Andy has brought electronics and software workshops to over 10,000 students from small helicopters to sophisticated quadrupeds.
Pete Florence, Ph.D.
Pete flew drones of all sorts during his Ph.D. work at MIT. His planning and control work in the Robot Locomotion Group pushed the horizons for faster, more agile, and more reliable drones and his award-winning robot manipulation is giving robots new abilities all the time.
Andy P became obsessed with understanding how young people learn and hasn't let up. He taught high school math, coached robotics, led STEM workshops, developed curriculum, volunteered internationally, and now designs and develops software to guide best-practice instructional design for teachers.
