Today, we went to the School of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (MAE) to do our projects.
Project 9A's two sub-groups worked together on the pedal-powered 12V car battery charger. It was fun working with them. Using the materials given to us, we assembled a functioning pedal-powered battery charger.
During this process, we realised that even if it was working well, there were many problems in this design, so we started thinking of designs which will solve these problems. We thought of a design that allowed us to make use of their current environment as their frame for this process.
Our design consists of bamboo structured to fulfill the duties of the other materials that cannot be found there like aluminium. Overall, this day was enjoyable and I got to learn more about this project that I have been given and I am glad that I got a chance to had a go at this project.
