Perla Hernandez has never met a machine that has not sparked her imagination. As a child, she dissected alarm clocks to see how they worked. She begged her parents for a microscope, a telescope, everything to explore the intricate details that make our world vibrate.
Major in mechanical engineering at St. Ambrose, Perla discovered an area that rewards her hungry mind. Her desire to explore caught the attention of professors, who invited her to join a research project on climate-friendly biofuels. Then a service trip to Memphis opened his eyes to the shoreline pollution problem and sparked a plan to seek solutions at the university.
