What do Redwood Trees and a machine shop have in common? Emily Woods! Spend some time learning how Emily’s upbringing took her from making her own tools to do field research to her role as Senior Member Ambassador for TechShop St. Louis where she supports and manages the member service and experience department.
Emily is a San Francisco Bay Area native with a BA in Environmental Studies and a long history in the maker movement and continues to support the maker community outside of TechShop. Emily sits on the Board of Directors for Autistry, a therapeutic makerspace for people with Autism in San Rafael, California and is focused on helping the organization to expand into the Silicon Valley.
Feeling inspired!? TechShop is a community-based workshop and prototyping studio on a mission to democratize access to the tools of innovation. You can get your makerspace, prototyping, experimentation groove on from 9am to midnight every day. Packed with cutting-edge tools, equipment, and computers loaded with design software featuring the Autodesk Design Suite, we offer the space to make, and the support and camaraderie of a community of makers.
