Egg Car Project – Deliver

Present findings to an external audience

05 12

Engage in external evaluation

  • I planned out how I should design and build my car. I did this by creating a prototype for my car and I also used what I had around in my home to build this car
  • Throughout the process of creating my egg car. I have come across some complications about how I should build my egg car. For example, materials I should use and how I should apply them to my egg car. I first had a plan to make a safety box and a seatbelt for my egg car but I never made them. Underneath the cotton balls I attempted to make a box to cover my egg but that did not work out.

Reflect on the results

  • My car did not successfully meet all of the project constraints. I was successful in having my car under 15 cm on each side, having wheels, a seat for an egg and for having 2 safety features. I was not successful in protecting my egg from the crash.
  • I was successful during the process of completing almost all of the constraints and being on track with
  • During this project I learned that I should be following the procedures and steps I give myself to follow.
  • Next time I do a project in my future courses, I will make sure I follow the steps I give myself to follow. I had everything planned for this project, however, I did not follow the steps I said I was going to take when I first started.

Egg Car Project – Develop

Test the solution

  • When testing my egg car it was not fully successful. Some of the things I encountered was having my egg carton piece come off and my car jolting into the door very hard. Two successes I had were the egg car rolling smoothly down the ramp and having my safety cushions and box stay in place. 

Synthesize and analyze feedback

  • My partner gave me feedback on my egg car before I tested it going down a ramp. My partner told me I should protect the surroundings of the egg so that it does not crash and for me to add more cushion. 

Revise the solution

  • I am going to work on creating a stronger crumple zone for my car and a secure egg seat with a seatbelt for my car. I do not want my passenger to die in this competition. To also protect my egg I will add more cushion around the safety box to protect the egg from crashing. 

Cloner – Deliver

  • The original goal of the project.

    • The original goal of the project was to create a flower that has petals changing colors.
  • The parts of your scratch program that are working 

    • All of the parts in my scratch program are working.
  • The parts of your program that are not working 

    • Everything works.
  • The most important thing to fix or create in the time left.

    • The most important thing to create now is a second layer of petals which change colors. I want another row of petals which do the same job as the previous petals. Like growing outward.
  • A to do list which shows how you will spend the remaining time.

    • I will create another petal
    • I will clone that petal
    • And I will program the petals to change colors.

So far I created the flower and its petals. I also animated it to go counter clock-wise around the middle of the flower.
