Our next #teammatetuesday features Eric Z. from Columbia, SC. Eric was inspired to become an aerospace engineering after witnessing a space shuttle launch the age of 12. He joined the SLI team due to his continuing interest in rocketry and he thought it was the coolest senior design project. Eric is the Computer Aided Drawing lead for the launch vehicle. In this role, Eric oversees all of the 3D drawings for launch vehicle and makes sure they are kept up to date as the design is adjusted. He plans pursue a career in the space industry after he graduates in May. Eric is an Eagle Scout and a state champion in rugby, as well as a national champion in JRTOTC. A sample of his work (the fin can for the rocket) is shown below.
