Probably the most challenging part of this entire journey was breeding mosquito larvae. At times, there would be no evidence of mosquito larvae in the water. A day later I could come back and there would be hundreds of larvae floating on the surface. Two days later, I could come back and there wouldn't be anything.
Another challenging part of my journey was finding a way of mounting the electronics in a dry, waterproof place onboard the robot. I went through six prototypes trying to do just this! Read more

The best part of the entire innovation process, in my opinion, is the actual building of the prototype. I like to just sit down and get my hands dirty. Working with a 3M mentor is a lot of fun. It's really nice being able to bounce ideas off of someone. The most challenging part of the entire journey so far has been dealing with live insects, which behave in ways you don't expect.

As I participated in a 3M-wide poster session this week, I was reminded of the importance of being able to communicate what you’re researching to a variety of people who may come up and talk to you during a poster session. This type of interaction starts early in school for most of us, when we are encouraged to participate in science fairs or other competitions where we start communicating our work to others. It takes a lot of practice to figure out how interested someone is or how much background they might have in what you’re do Read more
