Bonderman Travel Fellowship

Carrie Rabel



1998 Fellows

Rabel once proclaimed, “If I were to wake up with one magical power, I would make everyone love math. I think math is cool.” Eagerly planning a career as a high school math teacher, Carrie had never considered travel. A Bonderman Fellowship will take Carrie beyond her affinity for the familiar and comfortable to experience the mathematical wonders of the world in both hemispheres. Carrie’s criteria for such ‘wonders’? She selected sites that are historical, not reproducible, and that reflect mathematical principles and approaches to their creation.
