PAST PROJECTS & LABS    

Digital Systems 1 Lab

Various digital logic circuits were analyzed schematically and then tested on hardware using an Altera hardware board.

Freshman Practicum

We built various analog and digital circuits on breadboards, then tested them with  and report on the outcome.

Ethics in Computing

Designed and made a modified monopoly style board game for a final project.  Including new rules.

Glassblowing

    All of the work in this class was projects based on different techniques of glassblowing.

Circuits 1 Lab

Various analog logic circuits were analyzed schematically and then tested using different methods.

Horticulture

Grew some plants in a greenhouse over a month.  I chose to grow Dikon Radish sprouts, they accidently grew in 4 days, because of the greenhouses perfect conditions.

    Metal-Casting

Designed, sculpted and cast multiple parts.  Learned how to cast bronze and silver in both direct and centripetal casting methods.  

    3D printing

In this class we spent time 3D modeling in Sketchup, Onshape, Fusion 360.  We then got to choose what program we wanted to use to create our final project in and then we were left to model and create that item in that software and then print it in one of the schools professional 3D printers.

   Exploring game worlds

We made small games using different game engines like Unity and RPGmaker, as well as a final project.  I chose to make a 40 page game design document instead of a working prototype.

Game Production Workflow

With a small team we made a game, from story, design,pre-production, all the way through to a playable demo on a custom website.
