IED Projects



Paper Tower

Since school at the time was virtual, our first unit involved creating a tower with the simple materials of paper and tape. I created a 6-layer tower, with each layer getting thinner as the tower gets higher. Check out the video linked below of me punching down my tower.



Bridge

Using popsicle sticks and elmer's glue, I created a model suspension bridge. Using my 3D Printer, I made 'cables' and glued them to the bridge to make it look real. Overall, it was a fun project.


DC Power Supply

As the final project for my Introduction to Engineering Design course, I designed and created a portable DC Power Supply that can vary the voltage of the output. I used an Arduino, rechargeable lithium ion batteries, and various electrical components and modules. My project was powered by a rechargeable battery pack with a battery management system, included an LCD information display, and a soldered circuit for the potentiometer and output terminals. Check out a video and presentation of my project below.


POE Projects




Levers Project

As part of the Simple Machines unit, we created levers using VEX parts and used calculations to create mechanical advantage and verify the formulae. Click the link below for our project slides.



Gears Project

As part of the Simple Machines unit, we created gear systems using VEX parts and used calculations to create mechanical advantage and verify the formulae. Click the link below for our project slides.



Pulleys Project

As part of the Simple Machines unit, we created pulley systems using VEX parts and used calculations to create machanical advantage and verify the formulae. Click the link below for our project slides.



Energy Sources Project

To start off the Energy unit, we did a project where we were to make a video pitching a particular energy source while refuting another. We chose to do photovoltaics as our energy source. Check out the video below.



Circuit Design Project

As part of the Energy unit, we practiced designing and analyzing circuits. The project consisted of a digital circuit portion on Tinkercad and a real portion using a breadboard and electronic components. Check out the slides below.



Electrical Circuit Challenge

As a electrical circuit challenge, we were told to design a circuit where there are 3 buttons that individually control 3 LEDs, plus a 'master' switch that turns on all 3 LEDs. The design of this circuit required the use of LEDs. Check out my project below.



Mechanical Efficiency

This project involved determining whether a motor wired for torque or for speed would be more efficient. We used VEX parts and a DC power supply to measure the input and output power of the system configurations, using calculations to determine which is more efficient. Check out our project below.



Straw Bridge

To start off the Statics unit, we were given a challenge to design and build a bridge using a limited amount of straw and tape. Our bridge earned the most points! Check out our project below.



Funky Centroids

To practice calculating centroids of shapes, we were tasked with designing random shapes in Fusion 360 and calculating the centroids of them. Check out our project below.



Plumb Bob Centroids

To see centroid calculations in action in real life, we were tasked with creating a paper beam cross section, using the plumb bob method to find its centroid, and compare it with the centroid calculation. Check out our project below.



Beam Deflection

To see beam deflection calculations in action, our teacher stood on a wooden beam and we used measurements and calculations to verify that the equations hold true. Check out our project below.



Projectile Motion

After learning how to calculate projectile motion, we saw it in action by building a launcher with VEX parts. Using a stopwatch, rulers, a projectile, and a camera, we launched objects at different angles and used projectile motion calculations to verify that the equations work. Check out our project below.
