Hello, my name is Evan Grilley and I am currently attending Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and studying Aerospace Engineering. I’ve wanted to design aircraft and spacecraft as far back as I can remember.
Skills and Experience
I have skills in:
- Computer Programming
- Computer Aided Design
Projects that I have worked on that I’m proud of:
- Recording CO2 data throughout various indoor spaces using and Arduino and an I2C Sensor
- Competing in the International Space Settlement Design Competition (ISSDC)
- Completing my Eagle Scout rank in Boy Scouts

I do have a little electronics repair experience from replacing broken components on my desktop computer. Additionally, I have opened my laptop up in order to upgrade components on multiple occasions.
Right now I’m active in two clubs on campus, which are EagleSat, which is a CubeSat team so I’ve been helping plan a future mission for a small satellite released from the ISS, as well as the Archery club. In the past, I was the President of the ISSDC club at my high school, and qualified for the international finals competition all 3 of the years I participated, and won twice.
I have numerous hobbies that I like to do outside of school. I love to hike and backpack when I get the chance, as well as play strategy games (both digital and board games), or read about anything history related. I have also been doing archery for 5 or 6 years now and play the clarinet. I have dabbled in foraging berries and other edible plant life and have made my own maple syrup.
Here is an image of me practicing archery with my recurve bow.
The iFixit Project
I am doing this iFixit project as part of a Technical Report Writing class which should greatly aid me in my future career as an engineer. In addition, writing guides about laptop part replacements is particularly interesting to me because it is something I already have a little experience in.
