Responsibilities :

Responsibilities Coordinated the four fabrication projects for the Robotic Boot Camp Intern Program Facilitated Manufacturability meetings Expedited parts through the shop floor Collaborated with 30+ recent graduates and grad students to develop designs

iRAT Team:

iRAT Team “A tremendous help given the to the iRAT was the training session of how to bond the structure of the robot together, which consists of both aluminum and carbon fiber. Without this help, our team would not have the necessary knowledge of how to properly cut and bond carbon fiber material.” - Andy Gravunder Photo Credit: Matt Harrington (Left to Right) Michael Comberiate ,  Joseph Kamel , Matias Soto, Andrew Gravunder ,  David Rochell , and Lizmarie Comenencia


GROVER Team “Code 547’s wealth of knowledge and experience is a valuable asset beyond the already excellent fabrication they do. Working with them allowed us to further improve our design and manufacture parts to the exact specifications we needed. Christine Redmond's organizational and planning skills made it possible for us to make the best use of the resources available and finish the robot in time despite a tight deadline.” - Guillermo Fabián Díaz Lankenau Photo Credit: Geeked on Goddard Blog (Left to right) Goddard summer engineering apprentices Christine Redmond, Alex Edgerton, Guillermo F.

It has been incredibly rewarding to see our designs progress from idea to computer model to real life, thanks to the help of the Advanced Manufacturing Branch.” – Jeffrey Susser
