Jade Tsao


I’ve always had a fascination with learning a lot about everything: ballet, scientific theories, tennis, fine art, technology, you name it, I was all over it. Over the years my fascination grew to include people. This led me to UCSD, where I earned degrees in both Psychology and Economics. With my interest in the human experience, these fields helped to give me a well-rounded perspective of people not only from a humanistic and biological standpoint, but also from a fiscal one. These areas of study have greatly influenced the way I approach design.

I believe that technology is the future, and it is up to next generation to have a deep understanding of what is possible. I feel it is my responsibility as a designer to teach kids the fundamentals of what they’ll need to know: mechanical and electrical engineering, coding, and design. By creating educational experiences and opportunities for children, we will then be able to bring a greater level of innovation to our world.
