You’re hard at work on your senior design project. As you’re working, you somehow stumble upon cheat codes that allow you to alter reality as it if it was a virtual world. As you’re exploring the power of these cheat codes, you realize how much you can actually change about the world around you.
Explain what you were doing when you stumbled across the codes, what you change, who do you tell or who finds out, and how your time and experiences at Mines impact the decisions you make.
Any questions should be sent to the following email address: email@example.com.
Thank you for your time.
