JT the Enginerd

Science Guest
RVA
Jen “The Enginerd” is an all-purpose geek.  She obtained her Masters of Science in Engineering Mechanics with a focus in biomechanics from Virginia Tech in 2013.  Her research focused on animal locomotion and included the analysis of beetle respiration and helping construct a platform to measure the force produced during an insects jump.  She also hopes to obtain a Masters of Education in Instruction and Curriculum in the near future as well as complete the requirements for her full Virginia Department of Education Teacher License.  Currently, she teaches basic engineering and design to future nerdlings (aka high school students) in Henrico County, Virginia.  She also serves as the advisor to her schools chapter of the Technology Student Association (TSA) and has recently started a Quidditch club.Outside of the world of science and education, “The Enginerd” is an avid fan of many TV and literary fandoms including DOCTOR WHO, STAR WARS, HARRY POTTER, Marvel, and well, it’s quite a long list.  To future discuss her fandom, she is the author of FrakinSpoilers in which she reviews the occasional movie and talks about other nerdery.  Many of her fandom interests have come to her later in life and she missed out on seeing many shows such as Firefly and Buffy as they aired on TV.  This sparked the idea of her Buffy series on her website in which she watches an episode and writes her reactions before moving on to the next episode.  In addition to TV, she also games, playing World of Warcraft as well as games across multiple platforms including Steam, Xbox 360, and Nintendo Wii and 3DS.  “The Enginerd” has also started to dabble in the world of cosplay and costuming.  She is currently working on a Red Riding Hood Monster Hunter as well as a Viking Warrior costume.  Her creative abilities also extend to the world of crafts and photography.  Some have called her a wizard with duct tape.  She has also had several photos featured on Upcoming section on 500px.  While her true passion is animal photography, she has also been a staff photographer for RavenCon and ConCarolinas.  Her photography can be viewed on 500px and Flickr.
