Thinkering Studio Project Proposal

Beginner and Intermediate Electronics

Think up a descriptive title. Try to be creative if it fits.
Come up with a functional circuit(s) and interesting circuit(s)

What challenge/goal/question will drive your work?
How can I make an efficient circuit that works as planned
My main challenge will be with making constant progress on my circuits
What do you expect to learn?
I expect to learn how to move ahead of my basic skills that i have now.
I also want to learn how to configure many other circuits.
I also want to learn how to be a more proficient solderer

How will you be challenged?
I will be challenged with the circuits problem solving to make the circuit work
How will this stretch you? (Look at the Thinkering Studio Rubric for some ideas.)
Safety goggles
various electrical components.

List your materials/resources and who will be providing them. If they need to be purchased, include the price.
Main Steps:
  • Pick a circuit that has a function( I plan to make multiple circuits throughout this project)
  • Gather the supplies(amazon or radio shack)
  • Begin working on the circuit and begin soldering it(variable length depending on the circuit)
  • Begin testing and problem solving.
  • Repeat

Outline the main steps to complete your project or provide a link to another site that has the steps. Below the link explain any additional steps you need to complete.
How will you document your process/progress beyond your journal entries?

I will document on my actual project page and i will have a video and possibly a time lapse of me working on one of the circuits. i will also havew pictures that
If this is not an individual project, how will you work together so that all are learning/working equal to their abilities? Roles? Accountability?
1-2 Marking periods
Dad, (electric expiroence
Book(forgot the name currently)
Make website
Radio shack
Similar Projects

I will develop my network by accessing more reasorces

List possible resources/sources of inspiration to complete this project. Are there existing examples of the sort of project you want to complete? Has anyone else done a similar project in Thinkering Studio? What words did you search the wiki for when checking?
Who/what will be your "teacher"? (Outside expert, in class expert, book, video(s), website(s), Mr. Whitmer, experimenting, experience, etc.) Make sure your "teacher" is included in your steps.
How will you develop your PLN (personal learning network)?
What parts of this project might be difficult? How do you expect to handle them? I believe that the soldering portion of every circuit that i make ti be especially difficult given the fact that it requires lots of patience and gentleness. I also expect the problem solving part to also pose a difficulty in the construction of it.
Sharing/Teaching/Paying It Forward - How will you share what you have learned with others? Who is your target audience? My target Audience would be anybody that is interested in electronics. I Plan to Upload a timelapse of a few circuits to Youtube, so anybody that will search for it will can get access to it.
Have I come up with Multiple fucional circuits?

How will you/your group define the projects success? How should we evaluate your success? How will that be "visible" to others? (Demonstrate) Can your progress be measured throughout the project?
(Look at the Thinkering Studio Rubric for some ideas or possibly Rubistar.)
Design your own rubric.
  • Actively seeks outside resources from a variety of sources
  • Seeks out conversation with the teacher as learner to learner

  • Posts files/links to all projects started or finished.
  • Thoughtfully lists/updates projects they want to highlight
