TCDSB Family STEAM night
March 30 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Event will be lead by Spin Master engineer, Kat Turner!
Hi! My name is Kat Turner and I’m a mechanical engineer at Spin Master. As an engineer I help create ways for toys to move, drive, interact with and respond to you. I design mechanism for the movements on my computer and then 3D print them into real life. My favourite thing about my job is being able to take things apart, figure out how they work and put them back together in a way that is even better than before. I get to have a lot of fun every day.
Before I worked at Spin Master, I had another interesting job as an aerospace engineer. My job was to modify aircraft to allow them to perform special tasks, such as a fire-fighting water bomber. I worked in a large hanger and spent often had to climb all around an aircraft. Have you ever climbed on top of an airplane? As an aerospace engineer I have!
