Hammer, Caleb

Caleb Hammer
Major: 
Mechanical Engineering

What is the RISE area of interest during your first year and why?: 

Instruction interests me because I have had rewarding and beneficial experiences in the past. I have tutored many students in high school and taught ENES100 as a UTF in the past.

What is the RISE area of interest during your second year and why?: 

Service interests me because I like to see my skills put to good use in areas where they can be applied. Even small local projects interest me ever since I volunteered for my church’s mission trip with Appalachian Service Project.

What are your involvements and or extracurricular activities?: 

I currently edit audio sets for a UMD hip hop dance team called Phunktions.  I also play intramural Ultimate Frisbee and Soccer.

What is your cool engineering experience?: 

Over the last summer I programmed a CNC machine to mill the shape of the body of a guitar at my internship.
