In my Design and Engineering class, we worked on building solar panels. The purpose of this was to use the sun to heat water. We studied the positives and negatives of using solar energy. After researching, we began planning how we were going to make this happen. Sketching and predicting possible problems and solutions was the first step. After that we decided on a final look and began putting our ideas into action. Then we tested our system taking data and observing what was working and what wasn’t. After reflecting, we created a detailed presentation about the process which you can find below. I am proud of my teammates as well as our design process.
