"The purpose [of the internship] was to develop a Liquid Metal Magnetohydrodynamic Generator. I CADed different designs in Solidworks while collaborating with my director. Once a design was finalized I 3D printed it. By the end of my internship I produced a complete generator prototype that was ready to be tested.
I used the skills I learned in 2.00A and the knowledge learned in 8.02. In 2.00A I learned how to do 3D designs and how to use a 3D printer. In 8.02 I learned the principles of electromagnetic induction, which was how the generator functioned.
They provided a supportive community that was very welcoming.
