Nick Schwartz Nick Schwartz, from Germantown, Tennessee, is an MIT senior majoring in mechanical engineering. Schwartz aims to combine his passion for complex engineering and humanitarian goals to become a leader in nuclear fusion technology, which he considers a transformative and cleaner renewable method for addressing the world's energy crisis. As a Marshall Scholar, Schwartz plans to pursue a master's degree in physics with extended research at Imperial College London. At MIT, Schwartz has sought to engage in work that can improve people's lives through engineering. At MIT's D-Lab, he collaborated on the design of a pediatric transtibial prosthetic liner for use in developing countries, and traveled to Kenya and Ethiopia to field-test the product. He has also worked with the Practical Education Network in Ghana, enhancing STEM curricula with video tutorials. Schwartz has interned at Intuitive Surgical, where he worked on improving a surgical robot vision system, and at the CEiiA Center for Innovation and Creative Engineering, where he helped enhance drone technology. This past summer, he was a mechanical design intern at Tri Alpha Energy, a company that seeks to build a nuclear fusion reactor machine. Schwartz helped manufacture the pod levitation system for the MIT Hyperloop team, which finished among the final three teams in the 2017 international competition sponsored by Space X. Schwartz is also dedicated to child advocacy. For the past two years, he has been an active executive member of Camp Kesem MIT and as coordinator of development has raised over $320,000 to fund the camp experience for children whose parents have been affected by cancer. Schwartz has also served as a program mentor for the MIT-student-led Leadership Training Institute, where he mentored local underserved high school students and advised them on service projects during a 12-week spring semester program. He is currently a mentor at MakerWorks, a student-run machine shop, where he guides other students in designing and building their projects.
