Week 6

I think I knew I wanted to become an engineer due to my fascination with solving puzzles.  At a young age, I think the big one for me was the Rubik's cube.  Also in school, math and science classes were my favorite.  In high school, involvement in technology and engineering club gave me an opportunity to design simple robots for competition. Really enjoyed being in the club and it gave me the final push to study engineering.

I'm including a little video of the robot from my junior year of high school for fun.  There are 10 motors and 1 pneumatic cylinder (fluid power!).  You can see the pneumatic tank strapped on the side around 22 sec.  See if you can figure out where the pneumatic cylinder is, and/or what its purpose is.
