My trail to eagle ended on Nov. 20th with a Eagle Scout Board of Review Awarding the rank of Eagle Scout to me. The most difficult part of this project is of course the Eagle Scout project. My project was to reorganize the library of Robert O. Gibson Middle school, as it was in such a state of disrepair that they had had librarians quit after only a handful of weeks.
I am the leader of a team of students designing and building a safe to participate in the 2015 Weizmann Institute Physics Safe-Cracking Tournament.
I am working on designing and building an automated hydroponics system, funded by the Las Vegas Leadership Council. The system will be controlled by a single board computer based on a TI Sitara AM3874 that I am designing in OrCAD
I led a team that participated in the 2014 Sparkfun Autonomous Vehicles Competition (AVC) in which we custom-built and programmed a quadrocopter to identify balloons, using machine vision with the assistance of a pixy board, and pop them.
As the Vice President of Programs within the Venture Council, I planned and executed a Simulated Mass Casualty Incident at the 2012 through 2015 Las Vegas Area Council Boy Scout Council Mega Expos. The simulation is used at the Expo to teach Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and their leaders, ages 6-60, how to respond in extreme situations that they may encounter.
Training included first aid for life threatening injures, resource management,
I decided to re-start the First Robotics Challenge (FRC) team at my high school. 30 days before our $5,000 registration fee was due, our school withdrew their financial support for the project. With determination and haste my team and I called many business in our area, and were unable to secure the necessary funding. The Regional FRC Program gave us a $2,500 grant from Jcpenney which was then matched by our school, allowing us to participate.
For the next 6 weeks, I put together a team of people from my school, and taught them how to work with FRC systems. Through after-school sessions, supported by many different teachers, this team of five people and I designed and built our robot, and subsequently competed in the 2012 Las Vegas Regional FRC tournament.
