DAY SIX OF OUR EXPERIMENT

October 5, 2017

Today we worked on tidying up our presentation. We met in the Digital Futures lab to fix the presentation of the wires of the breadboard and find another way to present the speaker and LED sensors.

We spoke to Reza about building a box – which we are looking into more. And we got some new ‘decorations’ for the presentation.

What we changed about our presentation:

  1. We are going to add glitter in the water instead of flowers
  2. We bought tape to put on the Glad bags to hide the white stripe
  3. We are not going to use the stool but are trying to figure out another way to place the speaker

We were chatting on Facebook last night and talking about the presentation and we needed to make it look more presentable and wanted to make it look more professional. We needed to think about our presentation as though we were an exhibit in a art installation – and our original way of using the stool was just not going to make the cut in our minds.

So we went back to the drawing board – did some Pinterest googling so to speak and started to think of ways we could make this look better. We looked at some of the second year presentations and wanted to get to their level!

Here are some images of the new breadboard with the shorter wires:

This will be hidden anyway by the wood box we built but we wanted to make it look better anyway.

Josh and Reza gave us some assistance where to find a proper set up for our presentation.

Here is a video explaining what we found:

Here are some images of us working on the new set up:

For the rest of our time working in the Digital Futures lab we worked on our blog post and process to share to the professors and our classmates about Water Bounce. We finished up this blog ‘website’ link and also the blog post that is apart of the Creation and Computation blog.

End of day six.

Thanks!
