Q&A with Buttercup
What area of engineering were you drawn to and why?
I’ve always had a love for machines and have been so fascinated by how things work. This got me into mechanical engineering, because now I have an excuse for tearing things apart.
What’s your least favorite course of study?
I would have to go with English. Don’t get me wrong; I love reading a good book but I’m so used to writing in my engineering classes that teachers feel my papers on Hamlet are like I’m giving technical specifications.
What has been your favorite class so far?
My favorite class has got to be welding. What’s hotter than a girl with a 3,160 °C torch in her hand?
You build robots? COOL!
Ya! I was previously working with a team to build a fully-autonomous robot to enter into a national obstacle competition. Currently I’m focusing my efforts on my own robo-minion.
What’s your dream car?
Definitely the Lamborghini Murciélago. It makes me feel like Batman.
