ColaHacks

A Hackathon is an “invention marathon.” ColaHacks was a hackathon sponsored by the University of South Carolina Women in Computing and Association for Computing Machinery student groups. At this hackathon, I worked on a team of three to design a sample software for computer science teachers to use in class. This software is able to…

Dragon Curve

I was working on a project for my math class and realized I had never implemented the dragon curve using linear algebra. I spent 15 minutes playing around with my calculator, realized I’m dumb, and spent 5 minutes minutes whipping this up using numpy. Code on github under my fun folder.

Programming Problems

I’ve begun to implement some of the classical programming problems in a Github repo. My goal for this is to become familiar with many of the problems in several languages. My plan for implementation is below: Sorts Data Structures Networking (server and clients) Machine Learning (Linear Regressor, Genetic algorithm, neural nets, k-means,) Path finders(Greedy, Djikstra,…

MakerMarket

I participated in a startup weekend at my town’s incubator. We worked for two days to develop a business plan and a prototype for our service. Our final plan was for a three-part business to educate people about additive manufacturing, create replacement parts for household objects, and print user-submitted parts. Throughout this process, I learned…

NASA Glenn Research Center and ASGSR CFC Experiment

I, along with a group of two other people from my school, Gracen Mueller and Ryan Cuentes, submitted a project proposal to the ASGSR Capillary Flow Challenge that was accepted. The project is testing the ejection of droplets in a zero gravity environment using the Glenn Research Facility’s 2.2s drop tower. My team will be…

MIT and MIT Lincoln Labs Beaver Works Summer Institute

I attended a summer program at MIT where I and 45 other high school students took a junior level robotics course where we learned the basics of robotic programming. We learned about PID controllers, openCV and blob detection, GraphSLAM, and professional communication skills. In the end, we had functional autonomous race cars. My team scored…

Genetic Algorithm

I implemented a highly abstracted version of my artificial intelligence final project. This version of my genetic algorithm provides a simple API for a developer to use and allows the user to pass in their own fitness function. https://github.com/Brenn10/Basic-Genetic-Algorithm
