During this enrichments, I made two project, lift and press, and all explanation about those are at the embedded image.
One obstacle I successfully overcame was that I was first time that I took class about engineering, and this was almost first time that I decide what to make. When I was making lift, I made many mistakes, and there was many problems with final product. However, when I was making the press, even though it was at least better, and now I feel I improved a lot with engineering during the enrichment.
If I take this class again, one thing I want to do differently is to research more. For this time, I focused on making, based on my ideas, and led to many problems. Then, I think I will be able to reduce number of mistakes/problems by researching and finding out how other people made the thing that I am making. Also, it will be much easier with research.
One mistake I learned from this trimester was that too much is worse than little less. For lift, I didn’t want pins coming out, so I cut pins into really long pieces, and I thought it will be better if I use more, but too much just led to problems. For press, I want to make body stronger by using many duct tape, and it also led problems such as hard to refill water, and hard to fix it when there is a problem that I want to fix.
This was first time that I decided to take engineering class, and through the enrichment, I made mistakes, and learned a lot.
