Today was my last full day in Florida. I can't believe I have been here for three months and only got sunburnt once! My internship with the AFRL has been an interesting experience. While it was cool to see the climatic lab and the F-35s up close, I'm not sure a career in research is... Continue Reading →
My mentor took our group of interns out to the beach today. He brought his paddle board and let us all try. The guys were all over it, of course. I was rather hesitant.

I finished my first week of teaching today. I am so freaking tired. The early morning preparation and the evening reviews are just too much. This morning, I went to Walmart. To get the kids to understand packet encapsulation, I had them surround a jumbo marshmallow with a cube and that cube was encapsulated by... Continue Reading →
I was cleaning up the Senior Design lab for the ENGR 1110 course that I will be co-instructing in two weeks and found these senior design essentials from 2011 tucked away in a cabinet. There were also cups that were covered with dried up coffee. 1) Ewww! 2) Who puts a used coffee cup in... Continue Reading →
I've been putting together the lecture slide for my course/camp. These are two of the best images that I have come across. The sandbox turtle is the main attraction on one of the slides, but I don't know if I can find a reason to use the OSI cat model below. We plan on have the... Continue Reading →
