My father is an engineer in China. He works with power supply. When I went to his factory, I saw from the beginning to the end of the power supply. It’s magic! Resistors and capacitors can be put together and power a computer; that’s really cool. In ECET 20900 (Introduction to Microcontrollers), we had to use a programmable board to control a motor and a light at the same time. For our final lab, we had to control fan, motor and a light at the same time. When it worked, I felt like “wow, I can do this. You are a maker right now!” I like to program to control something. I want to do a program to control my garage door.
Making a difference
I will try to have a company and design some very cool stuff just to make life better. I’ll use my products to help other people.
I had the chance to be a member of AET club. We have tutoring, we have a small group, and we build stuff. We have a go-kart, and we built it together. This semester we had more members coming in. We had professionals coming in to talk about careers and jobs. We’re a social group that provides the opportunity to have leadership experience and to build projects.
