Nicole is an exhibit developer for the Exploratorium's Tinkering Studio. She might be found sewing, or welding, or making a cardboard bearskin rug.
Nicole studied sculpture at the Rhode Island School of Design, and she has been tinkering at the Exploratorium since 2007. The results of these experiments range from a musical bench (in collaboration with Ryan Jenkins, also part of the Tinkering Studio staff), to a stroboscopic camera and a telescope that makes everything look like a little toy.
