Technology


I love technology! From coding, to how the circuits work, to the science behind how every part came to be, it always amazes me. I have lots of high tech things, like a 3D printer, a soldering iron to make circuits, a small solar panel, rechargeable batteries, GoPros, and more. I want to be some kind of electrical engineer in the future. See the links below for more on technology!



MHHS Robotics Club | Middle School Workshop 12/02

As President of the MHHS Robotics Club, 36 students from across the district came in for our middle school workshop fundraiser. Students learned about the Engineering Design Process and built, programmed, and tested robots, using optical sensors to navigate a field autonomously! The workshop ended with a competition and celebration among teams.


UCLA Introduction to Engineering Design: Rovers (E96A) Summer Institute

During the Summer of 2022, I attended a UCLA Introduction to Engineering Design: Rovers (E96A) Precollege Summer Institute. We learned how to program Arduinos with H-Bridges, Ultrasonic Sensors, Time of Flight Sensors, Gyroscopes, and Servos, and learned how to model things in CAD, laser cut, 3D Print, and so much more. This video recaps the 3-week experience.


SmartBells

Me and two friends competed in Unite Hacks 2022, a hackathon with a prompt of 'Innovation'. Identifying a problem with dumbell weight training - after all, they are dumb - we added technology to them to make them smartbells! Our project got 3rd place! This is our project pitch video. As we made a mobile app for this hackathon, there is no website link.


ATEPS

Me and three friends competed in ImpactHacks 2022, an AI-based hackathon with a prompt of "social good". With inspiration from a previous hackathon project we had made, we made a revolutionary new school security system that used AI, bluethooth technology, and various hardware components to ensure all people entering a school are authorized. Our project got the Judge's Choice award!! This is our project pitch video. The website for our project is below.

Buzz & Slap

Me and two friends competed in AssembleHacks 2022, one of the first in-person hackathons after the COVID-19 pandemic! The in-person format was very fun, with scavenger hunts and puzzles planned for us. We slept on chairs in sleeping bags (for the 3 hours that we did sleep), worked in a tiny room which we named The Closet, and ate in a kitchen area with food which the organizers prepared for us. The prompt for the hackathon was "piece of shit that nobody needs", and the voting was done by our fellow participants in a science-fair-style format, so we went for a more informal and fun project. Our project got the Most Upvoted Project award!! This is our project pitch video. The website for our project is below.

HereCard

Me and two friends competed in PantherHacks2022, making a hardware hack that offered a new solution to attendance-taking at schools. We used an RFID sensor and LCD display connected to an Arduino, a Raspberry Pi, a python flask backend, a Firebase database, and HTML/CSS/JS for the UI, seamlessly integrating the hardware and software portions together into a polished product. Our project got 1st place!! This is our project pitch video. The website for our project, and the Devpost submission, are below.

State Robotics Competition

In March 2022, after making it through the regionals competition, my team and I competed in the state Vex Robotics competition at Miltipas. This video documents our robotics experience.


DIY LED Strip Lights

Suddenly getting an idea while sitting around staring at my Arduino, I made these homemade LED strip lights for my room using the Arduino, an IR remote sensor, soldering equipment, and other electrical components. This project was super fun, combining my electrical engineering knowledge into a single project, and the finished product made it worth staying up until 4am! The video below documents the creation of this project.


Robotics Competition

In February 2022, my team and I competed in the Vex Robotics Competition Tipping Point. Though we didn't rank high, the experience was very hands-on, fun, and educational. This video documents our robotics experience.


3D Printing

A few years ago, I got a 3D printer. It has since proved very useful! I've printed several accessories for my GoPro with it, using them to get awesme clips for my YouTube videos. Check out the quick video linked below of me making a pole mount for skiing recordings:
