Eagle Scout is the highest ranking of Boy Scouts and less than 1% of all scouts reach the honor. A major requirement is a scout’s eagle service project. This gives the opportunity to plan, develop and give leadership to others focusing on an organization other than Boy Scouts. My troop (Troop 156) required at least 100 man hours of work.
This is where my engineering and design work all started. My Project was to help the Glenview Youth Services. They had a very cluttered area with board games, books, and toys. I designed 2 storage units taking on a product development mindset. I learned how to be effective with my design, how to allocate the manufacturing process, and being efficient with my resources. The experience from this project led me to my Mechanical Engineering path.
