"Ever since I can remember, I’ve been fascinated with machines," says Quint. "That’s what fuelled me to become an engineer. But fascinations don’t stop just because the workday is over. That’s why I built my own fab shop at home, so I can take my ideas from theory into practice. Plus I always learn a ton when I build something new. And thanks to the internet, I can share what I’ve learned to help others figure out what they can build."
If you’ve got a rainy afternoon to spend, we strongly recommend Quint’s YouTube videos that explain the science of electricity generation.
