Nuclear engineer combats boredom with beat-boxing

Video posted March 20, 2013 in News by Sarah Peters


Penn State junior Mike Gavalek devotes most of his waking hours to his nuclear engineering homework.

But when Gavalek isn't hitting the books - or sometimes when he is - he's beat-boxing. He first learned to beat-box in high school and has been at it ever since, he said. Gavalek said he turns to beat-boxing to pass the time whenever he gets bored.

Sometimes, he also has the privilege of connecting with others who share his love of beat-boxing and gets to practice with them, he said.
