Hello Blog, I’m Michael Acker – 11

Hello! I am Michael Acker, and I have been an engineer since I was a kid. I am often building or writing code, and when I am not doing either of those I am generally eating or playing music. I also enjoy video games, although I don’t tend to have time for those anymore. I’m a Kansan, born and raised, and I like it here quite a bit. I was homeschooled for most of my life, so going to college is a very refreshing return to my original culture for me. In 5 years I intend to have a degree, work in engineering, and start a family. I hope this class provides a good introduction to the college style of engineering so that I can continue into more advanced classes and start building really awesome stuff :D

In engineering 101 I made a mooing door alarm:
