To start the week, I will be evaluating your Inventor skills.  You will be asked to actually demonstrate the skills listed last week.

Then, we will focus some time on your projects, Science Fair and/or Relay Carnival.  We will give this week and probably next for you to make a great project.  I will be grading you based on project benchmarks (due dates and due stuff):

  • Project/team website exists to hold files, pictures, notes  (Monday/Tuesday)
  • Project descriptions/plans posted on website with as much detail as possible so reader understands the point of the project (Monday/Tuesday)
  • Regular status updates (at least every other day) - have an "Updates" page.  These are honest reflections about where you are at, what you want to do, and the steps you need to take next. (Any day)
  • Design of product, including Clear measurements (timing, size, statistics, etc.) (Wednesday/Thursday)
  • Prototypes - virtual or physical, depending on what you are making (Friday/Monday)
  • Updated models - based on prototypes and goals  (Oct. 1/2)
