Science and Engineering: Define and Inquire

What is this engineering task?

To make a device or toy that shows the transference of energy.

What are you thinking about doing? 

I’m thinking of making a wireless energy transfer device.

This is a video explaining how wireless energy works and how it can be improved though coupling; Highly Coupled Magnetic Resonance.


This is a video showing how to make an oscillating circuit to get higher resonance for longer range, but explained the process in a very difficult way and didn’t show how to build the circuit itself.

Project Enable

For this Project, We had to study genetic disorders and how we could make people who are affected by these disorders comfortable.

The disease I had to study is called Pompe Disease, which causes muscle weakness from a build-up of glycogen (a complex sugar) in the lysosomes. The genetic disorder is caused by the lack of the GAA gene in the lysosomes making it harder to break glycogen into glucose.

The reason we researched these diseases is that we needed to find a more innovative way to help people with genetic disorders and a problem that people faced with the disorder I studied was getting upstairs

For the project, I created an escalator rail system which would be a more innovative and cost-effective product than the Stair Chair Lift. This product would be used by people with Pompe Disease, they would use it by laying their arms over the rails as it drags them up. The lift would be regulated with the speed of the user and would also have safety features that include Safety rails and an emergency pull.

This is my process journal for the project

Genius Hour: My Art Project

My project was about making an art Instagram account and uploading edited pictures that I also took. If you want to follow me and see more go to

My project may be over but I will still continue to build upon it, I will try have a larger, growing community that revolves around art.
