Leon Montealegre graduated from SPHS with the class of 2017 and most recently from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in the Spring of 2021. A really cool project he made in his time at RPI is https://openciruits.io. It’s an opensource web platform for teaching students how circuits work by allowing them to design and build circuits from the ground up. I remember him showing me this project when it first launched and it’s amazing how far it’s come. It’s even being used in live classes on the RPI campus now by one of the professors there!
Leon saw a need for an open source circuit builder because the only good option at the time was paid software with limited functionality. He wanted increased the usefulness and accessibility for the average college student. To go from a fledgling idea to leading a team of over 20 active contributors in the span of a few years is amazing!
