We are our team, and we’re grateful to have such an awesome one!

SMITHA PISUPATI

FOUNDER

   Our founder is an enthusiastic and passionate engineer and maker. She has an M.Tech from IISc, and experience working with children in Bangalore, and Bay Area, USA. She loves all things “making” and “teaching”. Tinkerama is her brainchild, and she hopes to make a real difference with it. In her increasingly disappearing spare time, she reads books, for herself, and her kid who’s already a bookworm like her!

GURU PRASAD

CO-FOUNDER

  An top notch engineer with an M Tech from IISc, this natural problem solver and maker has many ideas up his sleeve. With his expertise, he’s rightly the mastermind behind the workshops conducted by Tinkerama. He works as a firmware engineer in Broadcom, and spends his spare time inventing toys for his 4 year old!
