Hi, I’m Emmett McCann. I am a freshman robotics major at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Massachusetts.
I swim for WPI, mostly focused on breaststroke and IM. I love art, music, inventing, designing for people, swimming, mountain biking, skiing and scuba diving.
I have played piano for 11 years, and am very slowly learning guitar. I love listening to, playing and composing music. I write mainly on piano then mix in Logic Pro 9. I also love visual art. I have done a lot of work in computer imaging and algorithmic art. Mostly my art focuses on how computers work and the beauty behind their algorithms.
I have been inventing since before I can remember. I still have invention notebooks from when my vocabulary was limited to 3 letter words. I participated in FLL for 5 years starting in 4th grade where I learned how to solve real-world problems with innovative solutions, and got my first real experience with robotics. In the summer of 2014, a former FLL teammate and I decided to continue working together on some project ideas we had. This eventually led to us working in the Student RND Labs program. We recruited one additional team member and developed the Haptic Gauntlet. I continued the project under the name of Tactus in my senior year of high school with a team of 5. Through this project, I was able to develop electrical, mechanical, industrial, software, computer, and materials engineering skills.
