Better than any science class I've been in before
Today we started collecting individual student reflections on the project about how it has been going so far. Here's what Matt '12 has to say:
"Our class is luckier than any other science class I have been in before. The opportunity we have to create a working wind turbine for a final project amazes me! We are learning about entrepreneurship by producing this Kickstarter page to raise money. If you promote your project it will get seen, and we reached our fundraising goal in a short few days and were ready to begin the project.
"I have also learned a lot about all the work it takes planning a project before you even get started. We have worked very hard to get this project going and the classroom has a good vibe to it as everyone is willing to do their best to complete the project to its fullest. So far we have assembled all of the individual pieces of the wind turbine including the base. We have also cut out the blades from schedule 80 pvc pipe. Today we are going to try and put the blades on the turbine.
"Thanks for all your support and donations!"
