Ship a Chip
Transcript of Ship a Chip
The Process of The Engineering Design
how engineers plan and design a product.
what is involved with each step in the technology design process
BE ABLE TO
develop a model to test, modify and brainstorm to come up with a solution to solve a problem.
Defining the Problem:
You and your team of engineers have been given the challenge of designing the
SMALLEST & LIGHTEST PACKAGE
of all the other engineering teams in your classroom.
YOU WILL NEED TO PROTECT A SINGLE POTATO CHIP (a Pringle chip)
shipped through the mail to another state and back. .
New Hampshire - 2,708 Round Trip
Steps you will need to follow:
Define the Problem
Do your Research
Design your solution
Build a Prototype
Evaluate your Solutions
(Might need to do this more than once)
Reseaching the Problem
Use the Websites and Videos to help you with your research.
a. Write down anything you feel will help out your team
b. Write down anything you feel your fellow engineers could miss.
a. After researching you will need to have 2 possible solutions.
b. Make sure to Label the materials used and the location
Things to Consider:
- Strength of container
- Compare your model to others
- Mass (Lightest Survivor Wins)
1. Each team member need to explain and Show their possible solutions.
2. Choose one of the solutions or use pieces of multiple solutions for your prototype.
1. Your 2 individual drawing
2. Names for each of your engineers listed
3. A daily write-up
Explain what each engineer did in the group.
Any quantitative observations that might have been taken that day,
4. Define the problem we are trying to solve.
5. List of Constraints and Trade-Offs you have experienced
6. How you used the tests results.
7. Prediction on the shipment
Build 2 Prototype to Test
Testing your Prototype:
The Test you must Perform:
Test #1: Prototype 1
Place a chip in your prototype. Drop from a height of 2 meters.
- These supplies will need to stay in the Caddies & Work Areas.
Make sure to refill your glue stick container
Test 2: Prototype 2
Place a chip into the 2nd Prototype. Use the Test sites around the room and books to test its ability to not be smashed.
What the Final Solution Needs On It:
1. The Name of the group
2. Quantitative Data
How are you Graded:
Destruction or Survival Score/Group Score:
Identify the Problem
Define Criteria nad Constraints
Building a Prototype
Develop a test to gather data
Evaluate the model
Conclusion and Communication
Contribution to Group
50 Points Summative
You will get the exact materials after you built your first prototype
What you will find @ each work Station:
You will need to create 2 exact prototypes.
- To make sure this takes place you will not receive your second amount of materials until you have built your 1st prototype.
Using the results and your observations create a final product that will be shipped to the New Hampshire and Back.
Need to also turn in your 2 prototypes
4 Points - Prototypes are Identical
3 Points - Prototypes are slightly different
2 Points - Prototypes are different
0 Points - Prototypes look nothing alike
Skewer Rod - $12 each
