Autumn Turpin is a rising junior at Stanford studying Product Design. She joined the Designing Education Lab in the spring of 2014, and is currently working with KJ Chew on a project regarding the introductory Statics undergraduate course. Her interests in education include retention of students in engineering majors and the changing effect of college applications on the high school education experience. Within engineering, Autumn is looking forward to beginning manufacturing classes. She loves art and drawing, and is interested in the way people interact with different products. Her favorite classes she has taken at Stanford include ME 110 (Design Sketching), PWR 1 (Speaking of Dreams), ENGR30 (Thermodynamics), and ENGR14 (Statics). <br>
