Meet the directors

Liz and Sophia are excited to bring supplemental engineering activities to Needham's already robust science curriculum.  We welcome family and community members to participate in ways big and small.  Send us your thoughts, suggestions and ideas - we want to hear from you!

Elizabeth Lee

Liz is a passionate educator living in Needham.  Two of her three children have the good fortune of attending Hillside Elementary School where Let's Build is being piloted.

In her spare time, Liz is enrolled in Lesley University's School of Education exploring the intersection of family, community, and schools.  She also loves gardening, reading "A Series of Unfortunate Events" to her kids, and adores her wild and crazy bookclub. You know who you are.

Sophia Buckley

Sophia is an engineer with General Dynamics Information Technology in Needham.  In addition to her job, and her work with Let's Build, Sophia has four lovely children including two year old twins.


In her spare time, Sophia enjoys traveling, yoga, reading on the beach, and ignoring the laundry  -unfortunately she only gets to do one of these things often.
