Carlos Vadillo


Creator and Originator of GlowSabers

Studied Civil Engineeringand Computer Science in my native Mexico. I have been working as a software engineer mostly for start-up companies for the past 42 years. I have taught college level math and mechanics and had experience in helping elementary and middle school students understand physics and science, through my work in a program for building model airplanes. I believe that with the team that I have assembled we can tackle the challenge of helping introduce students to the amazing world of physics, engineering, and product design.

I designed the GlowSaber thinking on what is possible for a 12~14 year old kid to understand and achieved. I have taught about a dozen kids on how to build it with a 100% success rate. Kids learn some principles of physics and electricity, learn how to relate them to the task at hand, learn how to solder on printed circuit boards and finally assemble the whole thing.
