BEHS Tech Club

Tell us about yourself and The BEHS Tech Club.
The BEHS Tech Club is dedicated to providing students with a place to work and learn new skills. We encourage group projects and support entries into many competitions. Our focus is on self-directed learning through hands-on projects.

What are you presenting at Maker Faire Milwaukee?
We are bringing a showcase of our students most distinctive projects to Maker Fair Milwaukee this year. Cool things to look out for are custom computers and cases, electric bikes and go-cart, quadcopters, and giant rockets.

Why is making important to you?
We are focused on making and the mentality that with the right skills, you can make anything. We encourage our students to work on projects that better their lives.

What was the first thing you remember making?
Personally, a 12v power system for a tree fort, which included a keypad-based door lock, and a motorized elevator system.

What have you made that you are most proud of?
The electric gocart project was very cool, and ahead of its time, but unfortunately is too small for much-grown makers. Other than that, the DIY computer case is a great project.

Given an unlimited budget, what would you make?
The best computer ever, an army of quadcopters, a giant laser for powering satellites! An MRI machine, and an electron microscope.
