My name is William Ivers Lathrop, but I go by Wil. I went to Upper Arlington High School where I played tennis for the team and went undefeated my freshman year. I spend most of my time hanging out with friends and playing video games. I decided to go into mechanical engineering when I had an internship at a company called CVG or Commercial Vehicle Group. I worked with all of the engineers there and one physicist, I got to design seats for semi-trucks that had all pneumatic adjustments, I also got to build the prototypes and stress test them to see how much abuse each piece of the chair could take.
