Learning to 3D print molecules! #ncsumakes
For some reason, when people ask engineers why they choose to study engineering, they reply with one of the answers:

1. I like to build things.
2. I like to solve problems.
3. I played with LEGOs as a kid!

Looking at these Senior Design Day projects got me thinking: "why did I decide to study engineering?" I don't know the answer to that really, but I'm grateful for the knowledge, skills, and friends I have gained in doing so.

It's time to focus not on WHY I chose to study engineering, but HOW I can apply my knowledge and skills to future endeavors.

Thanks to @mccarthy_13 @shellyransom @joseysteidinger for being amazing teammates and helping us win the Autodesk Fusion 360 category at the NCSU Make-A-Thon! #ncsumakes #ncsumakeathon

S/O to @jacobabramow for helping the team while I was gone!
We won the award for Best use of Fusion 360!!!!!!!! We won $300 Space Mouse Pros for each of us!!!! Shout out to Mike from autodesk for helping us accomplish this💖 We went from no Fusion experience to modeling our product. I think this weekend we really learned #Howl to make a difference. Thanks for following our story!! #Howl🐺 #ncsumakes #ncsumakeathon

Have you ever heard of the Engineering Design Cycle? Well, it's being heavily implemented by teams in Make-A-Thon this weekend. We thought we found our idea last night, but we've botched it for something more sustainable. Our product needs to be finalized by 7pm tonight so send us some inspiring thoughts!! #Howl🐺 #ncsumakes #ncsumakeathon

Great team, great logo. Working towards a sustainable future. #NCSUMakeAThon #ncsumakes
Head of the NCSU Engineering Village, Chester Miller, was very excited to introduce the prizes last night! The first place team each gets a 3D Printer!!😍 Go give them a follow! #howl🐺 #ncsumakes #ncsumakeathon

A despicable act. How can we change people's recycling habits? #NCSUmakeathon #ncsumakes #designNow
The U.S. recycles only 23% of the 50 BILLION water bottles produced each year. Not only is this missed opportunity to produce more plastic goods sustainably, it's also filling up landfills with materials that don't need to be there. #NCSUmakeathon #ncsumakes #designNow
Got 99 ideas to change the world but quitting ain't one #NCSUmakeathon #ncsumakes #designNow
Team EnviroGeeks have decided on a project for #NCSUMakeAThon a Weekend of All-Out Innovation. :) #ncsumakes #ncsu #ncsulibraries
