Mechanical engineering student's project featured in industry publication Twitter
Gabrielle Conard ’21 (mechanical engineering) was featured in an IEEE Spectrum story about how researchers, academics, engineers, and students have adapted to lab, classroom and business closures by taking their robotic projects home with them.
“While the pandemic might have forced college campuses to close and the community to keep their distance from each other, it did not put a stop to learning and research,” says Conard, who’s been working with Alex Brown, assistant professor of mechanical engineering, on a low-cost quadruped robot.
The magazine, the flagship publication of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, put out a request on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn a few weeks ago asking for photos and videos showing people working at home with their robots. Conard’s project photo was among the 15 chosen.
