Celine's Reflection

Day 0
  • What sounds interesting about this project?
The fact that by using bicycle, we are helping the environment at the same time. It is also a simple, low cost and low maintenance electricity generator. This mechanism can be added and used in innovative idea to change and improve lives in the third-world countries. 
  • What do you think you can learn from this project?
I think i can learn more about the different components of electronics which is greatly help me in my pursue of taking Fundamentals of Electronics as my Applied Subject choice.
  • Any immediate questions regarding the project?
Based on the research my group members and i have done, most of the battery generator is quite bulky. I am wondering if it is possible to make it more portable and we can generate electricity on the go. I think in that case i could benefits the users more.

  • What did you do today?
Today we improved on an automatic material sorter. We sorted out different types of materials such as metals, glass, aluminium cans and plastic. Using our innovative minds, we did several enhancements using limited resources to improve on the prototype. For example, we elevated the entire material sorter and also tried to make a conveyor belt for the rubbish to go in slowly, however, we did not succeed. 

Day 1
  • What did you learn today?
Today i learnt what is a voltage regulator and i am also introduced to new apparatus such as as a tachometer which measures the revolutions per minute (rpm) using contact or photo. 
  • How do you feel about today’s activities?
Not only did i learnt new things, i've also make friends and learn to work with them. During this process, i have also gained lots of knowledge from them.
