Fabslam Project

The problem we all decided on was college campus transportation. To solve this problem we came up with the idea of a foldable skateboard that would fit into a backpack so you could take it inside and not worry about someone stealing it as easily as a normal skateboard which sticks out of your backpack. This was one of the things I am most proud of. The moment when we first tried to put it into a backpack and it actually fit no problem.

Working with this group was alright, however just like any group project there was that one person (I am not going to name any names) who does nothing and just slows productivity in the group. We shared our responsibilities very well however. We had two people designing the skateboard, and we had one person working on the paperwork and website. Once the two people working on designs had come up with a good idea they showed it to the rest of the group then we all voted on weather it should be applied to the final product or not. One big problem we had was the hinge. The two people designing it went though many iterations before the entire group agreed on a design. This took about three to four weeks. I personally think that we worked well together.

I feel like I had a big contribution to the project. I brought the wheels and trucks so we would not have to buy them. I chose what grip-tape to buy, and where the holes for the crews should go. These contributions feel important to me because I feel like a really helped with the creation of the foldable skateboard. However I would like to improve it. Currently the hinge is sloppy and not very strong. I would like to fix that by thickening the pin in the middle of the hinge to make it have less slop and be able to support more weight.

I learned a lot from this course. I learned how to build a Jelly Box 3D printer, how the 3D printer works, and teamwork.
Challenges we had during the build was trying to get the screen to work. After hours of trying to figure it out, and a new arduino. We finally figured out that the power for the screen was not properly plugged in.
Things i am most proud of from this build process is when we were finished wiring it and for the first turned it on. Although I was more proud when we got the screen to work.
Working with my team-mates was a great experience working with this team. We have our inside jokes and can get along. The only problem we faced was the screen not turning on and we worked together to figure it out.
I would like to build another. It was a great and challenging experience.

Capstone Project

My capstone project idea is to make a game controller for a two player Tron like scratch game. Each person will have a controller snd the goad in to eliminate the other player using the trail left behind you.

Tools:Scratch, Tinkercad, Plastic filament, 3D printer, and maybe springs.

Goals of maker foundations

Goals:

1:Learn how to use HTML and CSS

2:Learn how to use scratch

3:Meet new people

4:3D print cool stuff

5:Have fun!

Things i like

These are some of the things that i like.

1: steam is a service where you can buy games, make friends, chat with people, and sell in game items.

2: PC building: I like to build comuters. Just this summer i built my current computer.

3:Suparu impreza WRX: The reason why i like this car is becsue it is a cheep, good looking, and fast sports car.

Scratch game

My game is called “the amazingly long adventure” it is a simple platformer were you try to get to the end of each level.
