Graduating from Wentworth Institute of Technology with a Batchelors of Science in Electromechanical Engineering with a minor in Applied Mathematics, I needed some way to go out with a bang! So, naturally, I decided to decorate my cap. But I couldn’t do anything run-of-the-mill, this was my college graduation! I […]


As an elective, I chose to take a manufacturing course, as it has always interested me. The course focused on 3 axis milling machines, the ones in Wentworth’s new manufacturing center. Through the course, we machined a working air engine, and at the end of the semester measured the speeds […]

Playing with high voltage and stored charges? Oh boy! What fun! But first, you need a machine capable of generating a high voltage. That’s what this project focused on, is making a generator capable of producing a very high voltage. Electrostatic generators use moving plates and brushes to create a […]
