The Blasting Balloon Proposal
Member(s):
Just Cole
Challenge:
What Materials will i have to use?
How am i going to build it?
Where will i get the materials?
What will the structure be like?
How fast can i build it?
Learning:
I expect to learn other ways to power a car other then batteries.
I will be challenged because i will have to find a good weight so the car can actually move.
This will stretch me because i need to find a good weight so it can move and not be to heavy. (Look at the Thinkering Studio Rubric for some ideas.)
Materials:
The materials i need to do so are Knife, scissors, nail, hammer, 4 caps, balloon, masking tape, 3 straws, 2 bamboo skewers, straw, 16 oz bottle, video camera, and a book or computer to learn how to build it.
Main Steps:
The main steps i will probably use is first go to the store and buy the product that i will need. Then i will build the car. The next i will go attach the balloon to the car. Then i will take the straw and attach it to the balloon. Then i will test it a couple times until it will work. Once finished i will video tape.Then when that is done i will post on the wiki so everybody can see how it works.
Time:
I expect this project to be done in the whole third quarter.
Resources:
I am going to watch videos on you tube and read some websites on how to make the right car.
Difficulties:
Things that will be difficult will be building the right car and attaching the balloon.
Sharing:
My target Is to present on a video on my portfolio and tell the audience the difficulties and learning experience.
Evaluation:
My evaluation will be showing it live on the computer and in front of the classroom
