IEEE Seattle Section Sponsors TrickFire Robotics Team at University of Washington Bothell
TrickFire Robotics, is a University of Washington Bothell club focused on robotics design and education by conducting hands-on projects. Each year the team travels to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida to compete in the NASA Robotics Mining Competition (RMC), in which each team is expected to build an innovative Martian mining robot.

For the past three years, TrickFire Robotics has generated several unique concepts for the NASA RMC as well as worked with the local communities to promote robotics to younger students. This summer we are focused on redesigning our robot’s digging cycle while also completely redesigning our arm to be faster and more versatile. We would like to thank the IEEE Seattle Section for their support in this effort. Without their backing we would not be on track for completing our summer goals and thus our year long competition.

IEEE Seattle Section has approved to sponsor the team for an in-cash donation to support its activity.

Intro: Carrie Ann Smith is an Electrical Design Engineer at Physio-Control (now part of Stryker). She works to enhance state-of-the-art medical technology. She completed her undergraduate degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering with a minor in computer science (Magna Cum Laude) from Seattle University, where she served as the chair for Tau Beta Pi the engineering honor society, president and charter member of IEEE HKN honor society, and chair of IEEE. She served as an Electrical/Computer Engineering advisor for a University of Washington mechanical engineering senior design team to help develop a novel insulin-delivery pump for patients with low acuity, while in her senior year. She has volunteered with KiloWatts for Humanity to help fight energy poverty in rural villages for two years. Recently she traveled to the Chalokwa and Munyama villages in Zambia, Africa to implement an updated data acquisition system she helped build over the previous year, which provides remote access and monitoring of the power system. She has participated in key research at the University of Arizona centered around autonomous ground vehicles and cognitive radio, where she investigated the implications of millimeter wave high-frequencies particular to automotive radar. She is currently volunteering on the committee of IEEE YP, pursuing a Master of Science in Computer Science at Seattle University, and finishing her Master of Science in Electrical Engineering at the University of Washington.

Seattle University

Are you interested in working with and mentoring university students on their senior capstone project? The Electrical & Computer Engineering Department at Seattle University is looking for one more person to advise for a senior design project team. As advisor, you’d mentor a team of four electrical/computer engineering students as they work on an industry-sponsored real-world design problem. The project runs from late September to early June, and requires a commitment that averages a few hours per week. Advisors will be made adjunct faculty at Seattle University and are compensated. We have projects on IoT, electromagnetics, machine learning, and robotics.
