Alumnus Will Clark '15 shares insights with design students
STS Alumnus and Class Valedictorian, Will Clark ’15, spoke to Mr. Frehlich’s design students this week. In his talk, he discussed some interesting design projects he has been involved in while studying Mechatronics at Waterloo University in Ontario.
A recent project had him iterating and rapid prototyping for a start-up company that was trying to develop top-secret wearable technology. Will shared an important Buckminster Fuller quote, “99% of who you are is invisible and untouchable,” and went on to explain that to be an amazing designer we need to expose the unseen and overlooked aspects of design, architecture, and activity in the world. Will shared his passion for programming and robotics. He is currently working with a team of 20 other students on a competition for a Mars-type robot that will drill for rock samples.
