Jenna deBoisblanc is a New Orleans native, a creative coder, and a teacher. A physicist by training and a programmer by trade, deBoisblanc’s work treads the line between art and engineering. Her projects, which include electronic music interfaces, interactive LED murals, and algorithmically­-generated art, have been featured in a variety of popular maker blogs such as Make Magazine, Adafruit, and Lifehacker.

When she isn’t programming (or protesting fossil fuels in spandex), deBoisblanc runs a high school makerspace where she teaches electronics, coding, and 3D modeling. She feels passionately about engaging a broader, more diverse audience in computer science and engineering, and she hopes to spread her enthusiasm for creative technology in her classrooms and beyond.
