Matt Schiller, ECE Student
In the realm of Humanitarian Engineering Scholars (HES), a second-year undergraduate at The Ohio State University was interviewed for his work making footwear more accessible for those without financial security.

Matthew Schiller, an electrical and computer engineering student, spoke about the concept behind his shoe for impoverished communities to the Study Breaks website. The shoe is designed to expand along with the fast-growing size of children’s feet, helping to save families from the financial issue of buying repeated pairs to keep up.

Originally just a plan drawn on paper, Schiller and his fellow HES team have since 3D printed a prototype to help the public better understand its functionality.
