Aida Castro
Born in southern California and currently attending Humboldt State University majoring in Environmental Science and Management with a focus in Energy and Climate
I think sharks are cool and I really like music

Interests in Appropriate Technology[edit | edit source]

  • Sustainable, efficient, and creative ways to get things done
  • Coming up with solutions to problems without creating other problems
  • Using materials already on hand before buying something new
  • Getting better at building things

Experience in Appropriate Technology[edit | edit source]

  • I grew up building and fixing things with my dad
  • I haven't done any big appropriate technology projects but I come up with small, simpler solutions for my everyday problems (i.e. using a mason jar as a coffee cup and instead of buying a cozy to keep the coffee warm and my hand cool, just use a sock I already have)
  • I'm currently taking ENG 305 at Humboldt State University and am gaining more knowledge and experience about appropriate technology
