Engineering/Industrial Design Co-op Student
Simon Gorbet works as an engineer/industrial design co-op student primarily on the design of actuated devices in PBSI sculptures. Simon developed the Blade of Grass vibration actuator from conception through prototyping to its very first production run, completing the industrial, mechanical, and electrical design for the actuator. Additionally, Simon worked on the August 2022 Shadows and Whispers workshop, which was delivered to 15 design professionals at the Domaine de Boisbuchet in southern France. He focused on kit design, electrical planning, and workshop content. On site, he led sessions, helped troubleshoot, and solved mechanical and electrical problems. Simon is currently studying to receive his BASc in mechatronics engineering at the University of Waterloo.
