My Coolest Project:
For my senior capstone, I worked with a team of three to come up with an invention and fabricate an alpha prototype of this invention. This was a cool project because our imagination was the only limit to the possibilities. We decided to fabricate the first automatic robot banker for the board game “CATAN.” Since we wanted this robot to be fully automated in true mechanical engineering fashion, we worked to combine multiple engineering disciplines in designing our robot's structure, controls, and even mobile device app connectivity. Ultimately, we completed a robot for our board game nights while utilizing our engineering knowledge.
