JuSTEMagine Board Member Spotlight

By Angel Bhandari

The JuSTEMagine board member spotlight is on Riddhi Munjewar! She is a senior at Millard North High School and is the Co-Director of Technology for JuSTEMagine. She assists in managing the website, as well as other technological projects! Outside of JuSTEMagine she enjoys being a part of her school’s robotics team.

Why did you want to be involved with the technology aspect of JuSTEMagine?

“I was first introduced to JuSTEMagine through my friend. JuSTEMagine’s goals similarly aligned with mine and it gave me an opportunity to be able to get involved within the community. As I met the welcoming people on the technology side at that time, I decided that I wished to be a part of that team. Everyone was supportive and there were always many opportunities for growth.”

Why is technology such an essential part of STEM?

“In nearly any field, technology plays a major role in advancing it. I think sometimes technology comes off as an intimidating field, but it has helped advance society in most respects. If we think of technology as a tool, our generation has the ability to facilitate the change and difference it can make.”

What is your overall favorite event you have done with JuSTEMagine?

“Recently, at Millard North High School, I helped develop the Girl Powered event through our Competitive Robotics Team. In the past years, there haven’t been many girls involved in STEM, and that has become apparent in our team. As a result, a few team members and I hosted this event as a way to provide girls an opportunity to explore STEM. We had guest speakers from various fields in STEM to encourage the girls and even robots that they could program and drive! Overall, it was a good way to connect the community of women in STEM to empower and encourage others.”

What are your responsibilities as the Co-Director of Technology?

“As the Co-Director of Technology, one of my favorite things over the past year has been meeting numerous people. Being able to work in a team is really crucial, and I’ve learned the importance of this from the technological projects when I first started our current one. I’ve been able to work with talented people from across the country to develop amazing things. With our current project, we are also directly connecting back to the community, which is an aspect I truly love.”

What is your favorite technology project you have assisted with, and why?

“Our current project! So far, throughout the development of the idea, I have been introduced to many great resources who have helped guide various features of the project. While the project is still in development, please look forward to its launch!”

What do you hope JuSTEMagine can accomplish in the future?

“I hope JuSTEMagine continues connecting people! Being able to work with a diverse team that can bring many ideas to the table can allow for potential with no limits!”

Congratulations Riddhi for being our board member spotlight, and we appreciate all the efforts you put in!
