Christian Stromberger's Website

Hi ๐Ÿ‘‹, and welcome to my w e b s i t e, very glad you are here. Feel free to poke around, and make sure to feed the fish on your way out!

Me!

As you've surely guessed by now, my name is Christian Stromberger. I'm originally from Austin, TX, ๐Ÿก where I grew up on breakfast tacos ๐ŸŒฏ (La Cocina de Consuelo is the best in town... change my mind ๐Ÿง ). Currently, I am a mechanical engineering major ๐Ÿค–, computer science minor ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป, and D3 baseball player โšพ๏ธ at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in the class of 2023! During the summer ๐ŸŒž of 2020 I did research for the Gharib Resarch Group creating a mechanical fish fin ๐ŸŸ to study the effects of different length to hight ratios on swimming (Reminder: link final paper when done), and I taught ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿซ an introductory class on Julia (the programming language) to high school students ๐Ÿซ through MIT's High School Summer Program (HSSP). Before all that, I graduated from LASA high school in 2019 (go Jags ๐Ÿ†!) where I played baseball, built sets for the theater department ๐Ÿ‘ทโ€โ™‚๏ธ , and helped start the chess club โ™Ÿ. Outside of school, I spent a lot of my time volunteering for the Thinkery, Austin's children's museum. I loved teaching the kiddos ๐Ÿ‘ถ about STEAM (science ๐Ÿงช, technology ๐Ÿ’ป, engineering ๐Ÿ”จ, art ๐ŸŽจ, and math ๐Ÿงฎ). I also spent time (some may say too much) playing Minecraft ๐ŸŽฎ and Kerbal Space Program ๐Ÿš€, two dream games for a mechanical engineer.
