Juliana Anderson (2013 - 2016)
Hello! I’m Juliana Anderson, and I’m currently a freshman at the Colorado School of Mines studying environmental engineering. I have a great love for volleyball, music, and the outdoors. I was with STEMBOPS for 3 years, and I worked with both robotics professors and environmental engineering graduate students and professors. I had the opportunity to 3D print and put together a hand with Giselle Serate that we eventually helped program to function like a normal hand, and I also got the chance to work on forward-osmosis wastewater treatment with Ally Freitas, a former graduate student at UNR. STEMBOPS allowed me to get hands-on experience with the STEM field. I already knew I loved it, but I didn’t know if it was something I wanted a career in because, as a sophomore in high school, most don’t get the exposure to real-life STEM work. Because of STEMBOPS, I’m excited and confident in my future as an environmental engineer.
