        The Secret Life of Scientists & Engineers | Judy Lee

        Meet product designer Judy Lee in this video profile from NOVA scienceNOW: The Secret Life of Scientists & Engineers. Lee explains that while growing up, she loved to make things and get dirty. These traits, plus a love of power tools, eventually led her to her current field: product design. Lee explains that this field offers a good balance of engineering and industrial design, practices that each engage a different half of the brain. She also tells the story of how she got her first opportunity to design a product—a play mat for the home furnishing giant IKEA—and how she put her own spin (literally) on the product. This resource is part of the NOVA: Secret Life of Scientists & Engineers Collection.

        This video is available in both English and Spanish audio, along with corresponding closed captions.
