This past Wednesday, the Design Labs consulting staff gathered to celebrate the end of the semester. While we visited, we built a prototype of a Rube Goldberg machine using materials and recycled projects from around the room. The construction was led by Design Lab 1 consultant Seungeun Yeon, who has extensive experience designing and building Rube Goldberg machines—in fact, she won a national award for doing so in Korea!
Seungeun joined our staff this semester while working remotely as an undergraduate intern at the Dynamic Robotic Systems Lab (DRSL) at Seoul National University in South Korea. She works closely with DL1 alumnus Mathew Schwartz, now a senior researcher at DRSL. Seungeun will return to Seoul National University in January to finish her undergraduate degree. Her positive attitude and willingness to help will be missed!
