Projects

Post by Dubiousity »

So I'm pretty sure at one point another we all have a project we work on, whether it be for school or for fun.

My current project, which is for and but it's pretty fun anyway, is to make a solar powered boat that will be able to transports army figurines over a water without tipping, here's my design, about an hour and a half of work was put into it:

I still have a lot of tweaking to do but my teacher said it's the best in our class so far, and I'm working alobe while everyone else is working in groups.

My actual project is to write a poem in english which people actually find GOOD ö.ö
Because, I have written most of my stuff in german(my native language, eh?) and hope that one day I could even get something like fans :/

Also I try loosing weight and gaining muscles if that counts.

My projects:
FFA Quiz Competition.

All the King's Men.
Clinical Rotation (huge pain in the tail, but it's fun and I enjoy it.)
And if you consider martial arts "projects," then Taekwondo is a work in progress.
And let's not forget the persuasive essay I'll have to write for English soon.

You should have started this thread two months ago Dubs. I could've posted in here at least weekly because of my civics class. :P

But thank God all those honors projects are done! Except two, but they're in-class projects (I think). ;)

Well, I haven't had a project until now.

i have some minor things that i'll add to or work every now and then (e.g. writing, learning languages, etc.) but no major projects.

You are like me, Dubs. I prefer to work alone too.

I have a lot of projects, but for now, I am just going to focus on my school projects.

The first one is making an electric powered product, my group is making a (somewhat) portable table fan. I don't know how good it is, but we didn't have time to plan that much, since we have to finish it by the end of this month.

The second one is to make a program that deals with transaction and uses Microsoft Access database.

Project list:

-"Epsilon" prototype
-Health & Safety Coursework
-PowerPoint presentation for Comms

When Christmas and New Years is over I think I'm going to order in the components I need for my project, but I don't know where I can get components to build a shortwave radio to integrate into the the rest of the circuit...

Yep, the strips of LEDs are to provide a slight illumination to a sheet of polycarbonate (in which I hope)
and the resistor is there so the current isnt too high for those 30mA LEDs.
The transistor, capacitor and that one LED together create a flashing light when the base terminal of the transistor reaches 0.7v
(the speed of the fluctuating voltage goes up and down depending on the capacitance of the capacitor 10 Farads for example.)

Tested the effect of LEDs on my polycarbonate x800s and it doesn't work so ill use less and provide an internal illumination instead.

I, like the others here suffer from having to much to do and not enough time. My project list includes:

1) Finsh 10 page health project.

2) Colaborate somewhat with a very unorganized group to create a group project for my comm class.

3) Finsh my novel (Not for the Nanowimo or whatever it is) In which I now have 200 + pages and a good stable twisted plot line.

4) Do all nessarry final adjustments to my new and improved self sustaining genorater.

5) Continue developing my drawing skills so I can start on "A Bed of Roses" early next year....

My first project is completed, even though the result is a lot less than satisfactory.

But my second project is pretty much messed up. :/ I am just going to focus on submitting something instead of submitting nothing.

On the bright side, I can start doing projects that I am actually interested in! ...... In mid December... :/
