Science Engineering Project Blogpost #4: Reflect and Share

This is my final product of this project, however, I was not able to show energy transfer with my device. I ran out of time to connect my motor with the battery and the switch, and without an energy source, my device cannot show energy transfer from stored electrical energy to kinetic energy. The device only has the shell but… Read more →

Science Engineering Project Blogpost #1: Define and Inquire

This engineering task is where we used ISB’s design thinking process to design and create a device that shows the energy transfer. In this video, I received the idea of using potential energy to create a device that can be used to entertain others, however, I was not able to develop further into the idea because I wasn’t exactly sure… Read more →

Polymer Journal #4

Polymer Journal #4 by Christina As a group, we experienced the difficult time of coming up with a product to develop prototypes on, but after we had the idea, we quickly found a way to head and started finding our ideal polymer. Prototype #1 was our first attempt at making a cup stabilizer, which is also where we gained our… Read more →

Polymer Journal #3

Describing Our Polymer  We are making a cup holder/stabilizer that can keep a cup in place when being pushed and can help insulate heat when holding the cup.   We want the Physical Properties to include: Aesthetically pleasing Sticky Smooth Clean No odor Transparent   Our Plan to Develop our Prototype *Prototype = sample or model    1st we will…… Read more →
