“The application of science to the needs of humanity”
You are the engineer rescue team based in the town of Alpha which
has been relatively unaffected by the extreme weather. Bets has been cut off so needs to be contacted but all communication systems are down.
What does your team need to do?
1. Design and build a prototype that will allow Alpha to send coded messages to Beta.
Why do you need to use code?
The key stages in developing your project today are:
Brainstorming: Time to come up with lots of ideas for a prototype and code
Planning & research: Decide on the best idea and start planning how to build it
Development: Build your prototype. Create coding sheets
Modifications: Improve on your prototype and code
Testing: Try sending a coded message within your team
Prepare your presentation. Get your prototype and code ready for testing
You have 15 minutes to:
Assess the scenario and write on your planning sheet what the main obstacles will be
Brainstorm solutions for how you will build your prototype and how you will create a code.
Project Mangers come up for your briefing and bring with you starter packs and team registration sheet
