As I work, I have found that a PCB board is the best way to help shrink the footprint of my design. I have made a video entailing what goes on in making a PCB board.

As I finish work on my prototype I have been doing a lot of works with sensors. As such, I have learned a lot about sensors, specifically Proximity Sensors, and Accelerometers. Working with sensors has been very fun, but however has required a lot of extra work; to learn how to use the sensors themselves. I have prepared a video for you to see, so that you can see some closeups of the sensors.

My blog this week is a video about some of the things I have learned during the summer mentorship with my 3M scientist mentor, Dr. Eberman. In the video, I mention qualitative and quantitative data. Qualitative data can be observed, but not measured. On the other hand, quantitative data can be measured. Even though I am backlit in the video and difficult to see, I decided to post this because of the excellent example of a qualitative observation that nature provided.

Over the past weeks, I have been testing pieces of my prototype to determine its viability, and last night, I finally developed a first rough but working version of the entire prototypical system! It was challenging, interesting, and extremely satisfying to build a working prototype! I have become very interested in the computational biology and bioinformatics fields and find them to be quite fascinating.

I just can't believe it- there's only about a month left until the day we are all anticipating! Time is flying so fast and moving so slow at the same time. But before I know it, the big day will have arrived!
Doesn't it seen that time goes by so slowly when you are anxiously waiting for something?
Having a chance to collaborate and interact with a 3M scientist has really been the experience of a lifetime. An amazing opportunity like this doesn't come along often, does it? This summer has been my most memorable one, and I will always cherish the memories I have created. "When opportunity knocks on your door, answer it with a smile." Indeed. Read more
