What is this engineering task?
: During this Science-Engineer Project, students are designing a device that converts energy, taking renewable energy & converting it to electrical energy, and creating a device that can be used to teach. The point is that we need to express our understanding of energy transfer. ‘Engineer’ means any engagement in a systematic practice of design to achieve solutions to particular human problems, and we are using our scientific ideas on designing and creating.
What are you thinking about doing?
: I am planning to create a device that transfers either sound, thermal, pressure force, to electric energy and make the light bull works. However, I am sure that I am not going to waste the electric energy to make the electric energy. I hope I can create the new energy transfer techniques.
The advantage of my idea would be saving the energy, but it will be hard to make a successful design.
New Techniques & Devices
Sound – electricity generator
Creative ideas that inspired me
collecting energy from pressure
- Pros: Whenever we walk, we can generate energy. Therefore, we can save the energy
- Cons: The design of attaching energy storage is not efficient.
getting energy from the magnet
- Pros: We can turn on the light bull only by shaking the pipe.
- Cons: We don’t shake too much in our normal life.
