Jacob Scheer '15
I’m a junior studying mechanical engineering with a certificate in Chinese Language and Culture. My focus is on climate change mitigation technologies, especially increasing the energy efficiency of machines, buildings and industry. I have been to China several times, to study Chinese language, as a hip hop artist (see my rapping here and here ), and as an eco-ambassador to the Chinese University of Hong Kong. I am also heavily involved with climate change activism on campus, and am a member of Princeton SURGE. I spent last summer educating teenagers about climate change, and led a trip to Washington DC for the kids to meet with their government officials and express their concerns about environmental destruction. Last year, I worked for TerraCycle and I wrote an essay about my experience here.
