The Kid Should See This

Lisa Winter, Robot Builder

When Lisa was 10, she built Doughboy, her first robot. For her, it’s all in the family — her father’s a robot builder and her mother collects them. But she really got hooked when her father came home from a Robots War competition with a trophy and videotapes of the battles. Since then, she’s been building robots and competing in Battle Bots, worked in a start-up that was bought by Mattel and continued to utilize her unique skills at the world’s largest toy company.

Meet Lisa Winter, Robot Builder, one of a handful of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) innovators featured in this sponsored video series from Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls.

Next: Building a Volcano-bot, Exploring Space with Shape-Shifting Robots, and Madeline the Robot Tamer & Mimus.
