Creating a Google Sketch by HM

As my last project in my Design & Engineering class, we used Google SketchUp to create a model of an eco-friendly home.  In my model, I added a solar panel we had previously made in class.  The process of creating my model on SketchUp was definitely not an easy one and it was a lot […]

Building a Wind Turbine by HM

This week in my Design and Engineering class, we made a wind turbine.  This task was definitely difficult and a little daunting at first but I ended up really enjoying myself.  The purpose of this project was to design our own, very small windmill and then calculate whether or not it’s benefits would really pay […]

Building a Solar Panel by HM
