I am a student at Olin pursuing a degree in mechanical engineering. As a kid, I loved drawing and making art as well as performing, which has spurred my interest in design. I’m a member of student government and have enjoyed working on collaborative design projects in the past, which made the audience experience portion of this project very intriguing. I enjoy working with users both with an attention to detail and a focus on the big feature.
I’m a prospective mechanical engineer with interests in small-scale systems. I love learning about the inner workings of the things around us, whether by looking over the diagrams or sorting through the disassembled components. My learning goal throughout this project was to learn better mechanical design by working with other mech-e's. Creating our marionette has given me a much-appreciated opportunity to put my mechanical design ideas into practice!
I am a student at Olin pursuing a degree in mechanical engineering. I have had a passion for making art since I was quite young, which has contributed to my interest in design. I enjoy solving complex problems that involve both detail-oriented thinking as well as more abstracted, larger picture thinking. My learning goal throughout this project was to improve my skills in mechanical design through practical and theoretical application.
I'm an Olin student, a budding software developer, pursuing a degree in engineering with a concentration in computing. Throughout this project, I found great joy in the electrical and embedded programming, wiring up components and programming the Arduino to bring the marionette to life. Outside of this project, I code Android mobile apps and am exploring databases as well as user to app interactions.
I am a puppet that was purchased from Amazon for $10.99 at the beginning of the project. The team has used me for prototyping their project since the beginning, and although I won't be present in the final demonstration or any presentation of the project, I'm still a cherished and well-loved part of the team.
I'm majoring in Engineering with a concentration in Computing at Olin. I have the most practice with Java as a programming language, but I also have experience with several others. In this project, my main learning goal was to become more familiar with embedded pair-programming, the process of documentation, and website and graphic design. (Graphic design is my secret passion.)
