Eden Full is an aspiring product designer interested in human-centered appropriate technology, having tinkered with solar technologies since age ten. As the inventor of the SunSaluter, she is a senior in Mechanical Engineering at Princeton University, after taking gap years as a part of the Thiel Fellowship’s inaugural class.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Eden while she was in Germany (the power of technology) and she shares her inspirational story. She is changing the world – listen to how she uses solar power to bring light and power to the middle of African villages.
Proudly Canadian, Eden’s other passion is rowing, where she was the coxswain for the 2012 Rowing Canada Aviron senior women’s development team at the Henley Royal and Holland Beker Regattas. To give back for all of the support she has received over the years, Eden tells her story with the SunSaluter in schools and youth programs everywhere from West Philadelphia to rural Indonesia.
