ROCeteer and TWIP CTO
Heather Wilde

TechNewsWorld: You have many different interests and projects. What is the focus of your work at the moment?

Heather Wilde: I care about helping more women get into technology, so I spend a lot of time teaching girls from sixth grade to high school so that they’re more educated about STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields, and I’m also chair of the engineering school’s advisory board at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, to help steer the school toward new directions. One of the subcommittees is working with the Solar Decathlon, which is a government project that runs every four years, and students around the world compete to create a house of the future.

TNW: Describe the two companies you’re currently working with, ROCeteer and TWIP. What do they do, and why are you passionate about their missions?
