I am 16 years old and I am a maker. I have made a air cannon that I got the opportunity to shoot with President Obama. I have also made two Arduino kits that are currently in the Maker Shed and they are called the 3x3x3 LED Cube Arduino shield and the SMD LED Arduino shield. I am currently working on 3D scanners.
