              Lab Projects 2013

       Engineering Applications

GPS ENGR-EA1 – Students will use selected discipline specific engineering tools, machines, materials, and processes.

 

 

Lab Project 2012

For your final project, please choose one of the projects from the listing  below.

Each project must uses at least one or more skills learned or practiced in the

Technology lab.

You may work individually or in pairs. If you work in pairs, you are just as responsible for the entire project as if you were working individually. There will be no excuses, for ex. I finished my part and my partner is absent or is not doing  his/her part.

As soon as you finish any part of the project, turn in that part of evaluation.

Because of the complexity and duration of  each project, once you have chosen your project, it cannot be changed. You will have 1 day to make your project decision.

This report is due Thursday as part of the Master Project process. This is an individual

effort. Copying will not be tolerated.

Even if you are on the same team, I want independent thought and processing of the material that you read, not something that you just copied from a website and pasted, just to get a grade.

Put the information in your own words. You have three class periods to accomplish this.

I can copy and paste in 5 minutes. If I knew you were just going to copy and paste, I would have not given you three class periods to accomplish this assignment.
