Magann Dykema, originally from Norton Shores, Michigan, is a University Innovation Fellow from the Spring 2015 cohort. She is a fifth year undergraduate student at Michigan Technological University studying Civil Engineering with a focus on Water Resourcing. She is pursuing a Certificate in Global Technological Leadership through the Pavlis Honors College where she spent this last summer in Brazil. In Brazil, all of her design thinking training was tested out in the world where she heavily focused on the empathy and define steps in order to look for projects for future teams in her program. This summer, she is living and working in Massachusetts as an intern for UIF. 

Magann is a strong believer in paying it forward. Because of this, she spent her first two summers of her college career working for Michigan Tech’s Summer Youth Programs because the programs she attended in high school played a large role in her decision in school and major. Additionally, she has spent time as an Orientation Team Leader paying it forward because the guidance from her OTL helped make the transition to college easier.

At Michigan Tech, she has been working on spreading the culture of innovation by planning and facilitating creativity, design thinking, and innovation events on campus. These include, but are not limited to, #uifresh during orientation, an elementary aged after-school class, and smaller workshops and events. She has also been a part of The Alley Makerspace on campus where last year she was the Operations Coordinator and this year she is the Student Director.

When not hard at work between school, extracurriculars, and a job on campus, Magann can be found trying to relax by striking it up on the nearest lanes, drinking coffee, watching Gilmore Girls, exploring the outdoors, cheering on the Detroit Tigers, or creating memories with friends and family.
