Clara Chiu is a sophomore at Scripps College, double majoring in environmental policy and media studies with a minor in economics. Chiu is a Palo Alto, California, native and a member of the Exponential Center’s inaugural class of summer interns. Favorite projects included interviewing and writing profiles on various Silicon Valley founders (VCs, entrepreneurs, etc.), compiling video clips of insights from venture capitalists for online content, and helping out at Museum events.
Editor’s Note: Interspersed throughout this blog are quotes from Clara’s fellow Exponential Center interns, as they too reflect on their summer at the Computer History Museum (CHM).People often ask me why I chose to intern at a computer museum when I am not planning to major in computer science nor museum operations. Good question. For one, I was attracted to the idea of learning outside my field. I knew that technology was interdisciplinary, but I didn’t realize to what extent that was true until taking on this internship at the Museum’s Exponential Center for entrepreneurship and innovation.
