Lunchtime speakers provided perspectives on a variety of technical careers. Gabi shared her story as one of the speakers, and introduced other speakers which included Rachael and Hannah Tipperman, the founders of Robot Springboard. Both are now college students at Brown, and spent their summers at exciting internships. Hannah Skyped in from her internship at a startup in San Francisco, and Rachael shared what it was like spending her summer at Google in Colorado.
