Projects


I have a number of projects, both on teams and individually, spanning several different fields.

Here are some of my favourites. 👇





UW EV Challenge

I was on a team that built and raced an electric car for 3 years. I worked on several parts of the car including adding a second battery and making body panels.

Conveyor System

My group and I designed this modular conveyor system to efficiently transport and sort anything with scannable barcodes. I specifically worked on the drive system and collaborated with the group on writing technical reports and presenting our results.

Phone Stand

This is a folding phone stand I designed by first sketching different ideas, then making a model in SolidWorks, and then 3D printing the final result.

Table

I designed this table as my first project using Autodesk Fusion 360. The design is simple and easy to build, using only a 4'x8'x3/4" sheet and some 1x4s and 4x4s.

Online Arcade

Using JavaScript, HTML, and CSS I coded this arcade site with 3 games and implemented user-controlled sound effects and game settings into the site.

Can Crusher

Here is an aluminum beverage can crusher design that I made in SolidWorks. The design is very minimalist and it can fit any can the size of an Arizona Iced Tea or smaller.

Mount Design

As an assignment in my MTE 100 course, we were given a set of required specifications for a mount, and I made a drawing and 3D model that met those specifications.

FIRST LEGO League

For 5 years I was on a team that competed in the FLL robotics competition. Our last robot (below) won the provincial robot design award for its modular design.

Snowflake

I designed this snowflake in AutoCAD and then had it laser-cut.

Reverse Pong

In Hack the North 2020++, my team and I made a reverse version of the game Pong with Processing 3. I worked on game mechanics, the health feature, and the bot for 1-player mode.

The Code The Entry
Rocket

A partner and I designed and built this rocket to fly to a max height of 23m. We did our calculations using Excel, and it flew to 23.17m.

Minesweeper

For my very first coding project, I made a simple minesweeper game with Python which randomly distributes mines throughout the board. You can play it here! 👇

The Code
Tic Tac Toe

A simple Python tic tac toe game with a bot that plays against the user. See if you can beat the bot! 👇

The Code
Death Star & Keychain

I designed these in TinkerCAD and then had them 3D printed.

This Website!

I also made this website from scratch with vanilla HTML and CSS.
