Stephen Charles graduated from Lawrence Tech University’s Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology in 2010. His early experience with engineering began when he was eleven years old; working under his father fixing pop machines. He began working on CNC machines in high school, and developed an interest in tool design. He spent his first few years in college working in software development; but in 2005, he made the switch to engineering, after working in an engineering laboratory. He enjoys cycling, and has participated in a number of cycling competitions. He used his engineering skills to build and manipulate radio controlled cars; which he raced and won local, regional, and national events. Stephen’s experience with electronics enabled him to create an interactive Halloween display, similar to professional displays at Disney Land.
