Priscilla Melo

Technical Manager

Priscilla joined LightSail after receiving a degree in Comparative Media Studies from MIT. As an educator in various out-of-school settings, she experienced first-hand the impact technology can have in facilitating effective instruction. At LightSail, she brings passion, tenacity, and attention to detail to her efforts to support LightSail school teams.

Priscilla credits A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline D’Engel for introducing her to her two favorite things – science-fiction and abstract math – as well as her favorite character, the determined, smart, and caring Meg Murray.
