This is my final product
This is my boat testing
WHAT IS WEAKNESS OF MY PRODUCT?
The motors do work. However, the problem is fans turn abnormally. This is because I could not correctly drill the hole straight to the motors. I think this is the weakest part of my boat.
Additionally through the electric boat testing, I found that my boat is not stable enough to stand it alone (If I do not hold it by hand, the boat flips over), so I had to hold the head of my product.
WHAT IS STENGH OF MY PRODUCT?
Even though I failed to show my boat float it alone, by connecting black and red wires to battery, switch, and motors, I could successfully demonstrate the process of energy transfer ( electrical energy to kinetic energy).
WHAT IMPACT OF THIS PROJECT ON ENVIRONMENT AND CONSUMER?
Unfortunately, this week, I tried to change the battery to solar panels, but I could not have any time to make alternative one. Also, if I had replaced a solar panel in the middle of the project, I would need to remodel my designed boat. Moreover, I could not find any tutorials that explain the way to connect solar panels to switch and motors.
My potential consumers (clients) are children who need toys to play with. I Thought my products could help them to evoke much curiosity such as factors that make boat working. Moreover, this let them closely connects and be interest in the science world!
HOW CAN I IMPROVE IF I DO THIS PROJECT AGAIN?
Later, If I have another chance to improve my boat, I will place two sinkers on the boat to make sure its balance. To add on, I will find a way (get the bigger plastic bottle to place solar panels and prepare the procedure to connect solar panels to motor and switch) to substitute battery to a solar panel, which produces healthy renewable energy for the environment.
