For my senior project at LTU, I decided to develop a permanent display about the robotics engineering program in the engineering building. I guess you could call me an activist. I want more people to know about the robotics program.

I chose Lawrence Tech because it is one of the few schools that has a program specifically for robotics and I learned to use the software that is used in the field. I also enjoyed the extracurricular activities. I acted, designed and built sets for the theater group.”
