Today we presented our presentations about Arduino projects that have helped give us ideas towards our own. This was a timed presentation that was 15 – 20 minutes and everyone in the class gave feedback on how the presentation was completed as well as the criteria that they had completed their project up to. It was interesting to gain feedback from those in the class as we completed these presentations on our own and needed ways in which we could improve them. It was also captivating to see how other people had done their presentations and the ideas that they had for their own projects as we all have very different ideas about the projects that we wish to complete.
We took a tour of the mechanical workshop to see what machines they had available and the kinds of projects that they were producing. It was interesting to see a completely different department compared to the one that we are usually situated.
- What is the mechanical workshop?
The mechanical workshop is a room that has multiple different pieces of equipment inside it that can be used to make various different projects that include making physical things.
2. Who are the contact persons?
3. When can you go?
The timetable is on the back of the door of the workshop room.
4. Where is it located?
In Queens at the back of the building near the very end.
5. Why you should go?
You should go to develop any project that you have decided to create to add originality and a creative fare to it.
6. How are you planning to use the mechanical workshop concerning your project?
I may decided to use the mechanical workshop in my project as I’d like to create a mini piano that look realistic. This would mean that I could laser cut pieces of the piano such as the keys. However, I don’t know have access to one of these machines so visiting the mechanical workshop would be necessary.
In conclusion it was interesting to see the various pieces of equipment that they had available to use as I wasn’t aware that the department existed. They had various models of planes and cars which was interesting to see as there are many different options that you can make. It has allowed to to see that I can create a much more interesting instrument that I first thought and I think that it will look more professional in total.
