[Design Project 6] Water Filter Iterations

To find the best design to filter water, we iterated through multiple designs and tested them.

[Design Project 5] Water Filter Design for Cambodia

[Design Project 5] Water Filter Design for Cambodia

This project offers a unique solution to the global water crisis, starting with Cambodia, where 70% lack access to safe water. Our innovative water filter, designed for easy attachment to water bottles, not only provides tourists with safe drinking water but also supports a larger mission. Each purchase directly contributes to funding water filtration systems in Cambodia’s rural areas, blending travel convenience with impactful social change.

[Design Project 4] Prosthetics Hand with a Creative Twist

[Design Project 4] Prosthetics Hand with a Creative Twist

In this project my team assembled a E-Nable prosthetics hand. This also includes a design of replacing a finger with a glue gun.

NASA HRP IWS Conference at Galveston, Texas

NASA HRP IWS Conference at Galveston, Texas

Thoughts Why did we send people to the Moon? Why are we going to Mars? These questions were answered at the NASA HRP conference, during a presentation by Amit Kshatriya, Deputy Associate Administrator for the Moon to Mars Program at NASA.

[Design Project 3] 3-d print and laser cut to fit a circuit

[Design Project 3] 3-d print and laser cut to fit a circuit

I tried laser cutting for the first time! For this project. My partner Ivy and I first soldered a board and then measured it. We then designed a 3D print for the board and a laser cut for the battery enclosure.

[Design Project 2] Remix

[Design Project 2] Remix

I try to remix Rapunzel and a laughing Budda. I put the face of Rapunzel on the body of the Budda. Out of respect for Buddism, this built will not be a budda and instead “laughing Rapunzel”.

[Design Project 1] First 3D Print and Stress Test

[Design Project 1] First 3D Print and Stress Test

This is the very first 3D print I made. It is a name tag. The stress tester I am trying to print has a mix of fine details such as small holes, overhangs, and cylindrical protrusions, which test the printer’s precision and its ability to handle overhangs without support.
