Our maker interview this week is with AnnMarie Polsenberg Thomas. She's the director of the Design Laboratory at the University of St. Thomas. Prior to that AnnMarie was a faculty member at Art Center College of Design. She's one of the most playful professors I know -- she created a course called The Science of the Circus and she actually learned to juggle and perform circus stunts. She's designed underwater robots and she also is the creator of something called Squishy Circuits, which she talks about in the interview.
