Tuyet Hanh Schnell 224x314

In celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month The Society of Women Engineers is highlighting Women Engineers like Tuyet-Hanh Schnell of Lockheed Martin Corporation. Via All Together, the blog of the Society of Women Engineers!

Tuyet-Hanh Schnell is a Systems Engineer and Agile Coach at Lockheed Martin Corporation. She has held numerous technical and functional leadership roles throughout her 29-year career and currently serves as a Product Lead on a large international program. She enjoys inspiring the next generation through STEM outreach and advocates for the women of Lockheed Martin as the Co-Chair of the Women’s Impact Network ERG for the Rotary and Mission Systems business area.

Tell us about your background: Where are you from, and what attracted you to the world of engineering or STEM?
I am a first-generation immigrant from Vietnam and arrived in the US as a refugee in 1975 with my parents and my younger brother. We came to the US with very few personal possessions. Through hard work, my parents were able to build a new life for our family. When I was six years old, I took apart a musical bell to figure out how it worked and successfully put it back together. I didn’t know then, but that was the first spark. The summer after my sophomore year in high school, I attended a STEM program that opened my eyes to a whole new world. I met people who were scientists and engineers and loved math and science just like me. They were applying their love of STEM to make an impact in the world which inspired me to want to do the same. That summer, I decided to pursue engineering as a career. I went on to earn a Bachelor of Engineering from Stevens Institute of Technology and a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering from Drexel University. When I left Vietnam on a Lockheed C-130, I did not know that years later, I would work for the same company that built that plane.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
