Hey, Sylvia here!
I make a How-To show with my dad on YouTube, showing kids and adults how to make cool things, and I try to explain some of the science behind how they work. Covering everything from rockets, to Arduino, to crafty sewable circuitry. People seem to like it, and we've had over 1,000,000 combined video views since 2010! If you haven't seen our show, check out my Press page and Demo Reel.
I'm heading to New York! And I need your help...
