Project Description

making a clean and friendly environment by creating free energy with gutters and water turbine spinning at the end puting energy on the grid

Showcase Video

Content: The top 3 things I learned from this showcase were:

The most interesting thing I learned about when working on our project was how to use a 3D printer and how to use the program.

Other aspects we would like to dive deeper into would be where is it best to use our product or what kind of roofs are best to use for our product so we can get the best use out of it.

A skill I can see myself using in my future or career is team skills. Being able to work as a team is important as you will most likely have to work in one in the future. If you can work as a team it will take you far.

Culture: This project relates or connects to my family, background, peers, community or my own personal interests in these ways:

My culture impacted the way I did this project because I don’t personally have much time while away from school to proceed and move along our project.

While doing this project I’ve learned that I need to utilize my time away from school more.

My learning could influence my culture by pushing me farther than I’ve able to and utilize my time more efficiently.

Metacognition: In reflection, one thing that I would have done differently during my journey with this showcase is:

We were able to fail forward by using criticisms of the product to our advantage. We came across many situations we had not thought of, and used those to make the best possible product possible.

If I were to do it again, I would set aside time to consider all of the possible setbacks that we would come across.

The part that taught me the most was that sometimes you have to trust your co-workers, and let them pull their weight. Being too much of a leader can hold your team back from progress.

Social/Emotional: One thing I am most proud of by completing this showcase is:

In this project we had lots of successes and had some failures, and had to fix a lot of things like the turbine not spinning.

We have looked back at how to rebuild the turbine design. If I had a second chance to try again to build the the design, I would have taken a step back and looked for a better software. I could have had a better perspective on this project. I personally learned that taking another look, a step back can help improve your project drastically.
