Good Gig: Professional Science Geek Howard Eglowstein
Good Gig is a series of conversations with individuals who have landed their dream job.
Howard Eglowstein’s Good Gig involves working to encourage girls in the computer science and math areas for a company called Science Buddies. They give kids ideas and guidance for science fair projects that deviate from the well-trod robotics and erupting volcano paths. Howard’s background in tinkering started with toy making, but he's always been a creator.
One project Howard describes, involves putting RFID (Radio Frequency Identification tags inside bells to create a musical instrument with the help of a computer.
