Description

Engineer Jeff Munn talks about teaching kids robotics in an orphanage in India. Jeff works for engineering hardware-software company National Instruments, based in Austin, Texas. With his company's support, he volunteers for a program from the nonprofit organizations Science in a Suitcase and the Miracle Foundation. The program aims to educate often marginalized children around the world, and they are raising funds for another trip to India to help another orphanage. He talks about teaching techniques, educational equipment, how he became an engineer despite starting as a musician, and what engineering means to him.
