Because I want to get my masters in aerospace, designing and building a miniature wind tunnel from scratch would look amazing on a college application.

This means about a year doing various fluid dynamics calculations, electrical circuitry (controlling motor RPM with a potentiometer and having a device feed me wind speed inside the testing chamber), and of course, laminar flow.

I have access to a no-membershit-required Makers Space with a composites lab, CNC machines, 3D printers, and a lot more (It’s at my current school).

And most importantly, I have a 240v outlet in my garage.
