Engineering Design

 

 

Our first big project:
We will be designing Disaster Proof Housing
Your Group is to choose a country- not the United States or Canada-
that experiences natural disasters such as earthquakes/tsunami, hurricanes/typhones or
severe flooding.  For example Haiti.
To start research the natural disaster. What causes it? What does it do to the environment? etc
Next research how the people live in the country. What type of housing etc.
Further info will be provided     CHECK THAT GROUPS ARE EACH DOING A DIFFERENT COUNTRY!
You are to put the binder together. if the last project is still in it please put all the pages in a plastic sheet and leave in the back of the binder. I will stop in on Sunday and leave you additional forms. You will not begin to build the actual house until I return! Make sure all of your writing is neat, complete and proper grammar.
This will be a major portion of your individual grade.
Watch the power point below. You need to click during the show.
Make sure you RESEARCH the items above and anything else you fill in. DO NOT GUESS
YOU MUST RESEARCH. You have enough to do for today, Monday and Tuesday. No groups should be sitting
around talking about other things waiting for one person. EAch personshould have their own work to do!
