About Me[edit | edit source]

Sara Newell
Environmental Resources Engineering undergraduate student at Humboldt State University. I recently transferred from Foothill College in the bay area.

Interests in Engineering[edit | edit source]

  • I want to improve people's lives, while at the same time improving the health and extending the life of our planet.
  • Water Resources/Quality
  • Pollution Remediation
  • Creating, learning and informing others about sustainable practices:
    • Energy
    • Consumption of products and their materials

Experience in Engineering[edit | edit source]

  • I worked on a team at my community college in an intro to engineering course where we designed a robot using the Lego Mindstorms kit. We made and programmed a dog called SentiPup, that could act as a guide dog for those that were blind.
  • Spring 2012 in my Physics class we designed a Rube Goldberg system that utilized Coke and Mentos in an attempt to pop a balloon.

Portfolio[edit | edit source]

  • This is a memo I wrote with a group for a lab assessing the water quality of Fern Lake.
  • This spreadsheet analyzes the efficiencies for an electrolyzer and a fuel cell.
  • A CAD drawing was neccessary to illustrate the layers within our oven, Ovenly Inferno.
  • This is the presentation of Ovenly Inferno, our ENGR 215 design project.
