50 Bagel Yo-Yos
Student in 2.008: Design and Manufacturing II at MIT
2.008 is the core MIT MechE manufacturing class, which culminates in teams of students designing and manufacturing 50 yo-yos.
After a period of ideation and down-selection, my team chose to manufacturing a sesame bagel with cream cheese. As a New Yorker, I was very excited to work on a bagel-related project.
