With a bit of free time and a bunch of parts I had lying around, I constructed the 4th iteration of my lightsaber.
Star Wars themed salad tongs I made during IB Design Tech.
For a Physics C project, we built a mousetrap vehicle according to the SciOly rules for that year.
For my summer internship during junior year of high school, I worked at CalState LA designing a low-cost, lightweight robot arm for a teleoperation robot.
Seeing how much a 3D printer revolutionized my engineering, I decided to design and build my own CNC router.
What initially seemed simple turned out to be an incredibly fun and rewarding experience. An interesting challenge with a clever solution to match.
Tasked with the manipulation of stacks of pennies, I went through 4 revisions of robot arms before I had one good enough for the National competition.
My attempt at an Electric Vehicle for the SciOly 2017 season which, due to a few key mistakes, did fail.
For our Physics 2 project, we had to build a wooden tower based off the year’s SciOly rules. For a first try, I didn’t do too bad.
