Hexapod Robotics Project (2013-2014)

As president of ASME, I led a team of about ten engineering students in the design and early stages of prototype construction of a hexapod using 3D printing, manual lathes, CNC manufacturing, and Arduino. This six legged robot was created for salting snowy walkways and spreading fertilizer on various terrains.

Business Partnership for Fundraiser (2013)

Created a partnership between ASME and a new frozen yogurt shop in Cleveland (Piccadilly Artisan Creamery) where we actively marketed them to students in exchange for them donating part of their proceeds to our robotics project.
