Exhibit Design Engineer
Adam has been at the Exploratorium since 2007, working on exhibits as a designer, engineer, woodworker, and technician. In that time he has traveled to public science institutions around the country and the world, from a summer science festival in Saudi Arabia to a mid-winter museum event in Anchorage, Alaska. He worked as part of the SPS team building outdoor exhibits for the Exploratorium’s new Pier 15/17 home.
Grounded as an engineer, Adam also turns to the stars. As a student at the University of Vermont (BS, Mechanical Engineering), he designed, fabricated, and tested an exercise device on NASA’s zero-gravity plane. He worked as a project lead at the National Space Society, meeting with lawmakers, astronauts, and students learning about space. At the Exploratorium, he conducts frequent sidewalk astronomy viewings, combining his astronomical interest with a desire to find ways of injecting observational science into social settings.
