Caleb Lottman's Problem Solving Experience:

  1. I am somewhat of a handyman. My dad is a self-employed carpenter, so I am familiar with carpentry, plumbing, wiring, and other construction based skill sets. I have fixed a running toilet using a short line of copper wire and a pingpong ball, and I helped repair the dryer in my house, saving my roommates and myself the cost of hiring someone. Anytime something is broken or malfunctioning, I try to fix it myself before I asked others or hire a professional.
  2. I developed a way to mount an iPhone to a bike simply and securely using the rubber portion of an otter box case (or a comparable rubber case), string, and four rubber bands. It works as well as a store bought case, is aesthetically pleasing, practical, and can be fastened in ten to twenty minutes at a fraction of the price.
  3. I worked with a physically aggressive, severely autistic, non-verbal young boy who was twelve at the time. Over the course of the summer, I learned and developed skills and techniques (such as pictorial messaging, changing routine slowly over weeks) so as to help him grow and become more accustom and accepting of change).
