Maria Li Lok Yee, Education Director, Program Manager & Biologist

Maria Li is a lifelong learner who is passionate about biotechnology, education, entrepreneurship, and making. 
 
In 2014, Maria joined the iGEM competition (synthetic biology) to genetically engineer bacteria that help people to lose weight. Her long-term goal is to become an inventor-educator so that she can combine her passion for research with her desire to teach and share knowledge with others. Currently, she is teaching in Holm Glad No.2 Primary School via the "Learning By Doing" (LBD) program on young maker education.
 
Maria received her degree in Applied Biology from the City University of Hong Kong (CityU). In her spare time, she will be working on her citizen science research in a biohacker group - DIYBIO Hong Kong.
Working in MakerBay is an exciting "learning-by-doing" journey. Maria not only learn a lot of new skills here, but also the various experiences she get here help her find her "WHY" - " I live to inspire and empower people to take action to make their/our dreams come true."
