Rebecca Grabman spent the bulk of her childhood in alternative learning environments 
in her home city of Anchorage, Alaska, before attending Bennington College 
(Bachelor of Arts) and Carnegie Mellon University (Master of Entertainment 
Technology). Coming from a "making" background rich with physical computing and 
textile design experience, Rebecca began working at Children's Museum of 
Pittsburgh during the prototyping phase of MAKESHOP, in the role of a summer 
intern. She later joined the museum full-time as first a Teaching Artist and, 
more recently, as MAKESHOP Manager.
