Brainstorming and Problems/Solutions • Original Ideas (bike powered boat, racing kart, remote controlled boat) • Problem of Flotation • Design of Propulsion • Addition of Land Travel (mounting tires/steering)
Business Perspectives • Initial Concerns – Budget • Total budget: $100.00 • Expenditures: $63.47 • Balance: $36.53 • We did receive donations from companies and associates, without that aid we would have been an estimated $150.00 over budget.
…a HUGE thanks goes to: • English Mountain Spring Water Company • Home Depot • Engage Program
Efficiency and the Key to Success • Approximate number of man-hours: 100 • Vital to our success was efficient meetings and interfacing. • After each subsequent step of the process, we would meet to determine what to do next and how to accomplish it. • Key: PLANNING
Floatation – Will it Work? • Buoyant force is equal to the amount of water displaced • 1 liter of water (1000 g/L) weighs about 2.205 lbs. • 1 gallon is about 3.785 liters • Each jug displaces about 41.7 lbs. of water • The jugs alone can hold about 417 lbs.
Results and Conclusions • Pleased with our team’s ability to meet a deadline, obtain materials from various resources, and form an executable plan. • Succeeded beyond our goal – crossed the Tennessee River. • Bigger budget? More time? Possibilities. • Refined land travel • Mounted turning mechanism • Longer lasting power source for propulsion • Room for more than one occupant
