  • DesignRough sketch of what we wanted to accomplish in our device

  • Device DescriptionCar rolls down ramp and collides with bearingBearing rolls down ramp and is projected into funnelBearing hits clothes pin and releases string holding up weightsWeights fall on second clothes pin and release hammerHammer activates lamp or triggers next device

  • Calculations

  • CostsFunnel - $0.50Hammer - $3.502 pulleys - $1.50Weight - $1.50Toy car - $0.502 clothes pins - $0.20Ball bearing - $1.50Lamp - $5.00Wood - $5.00String - $0.50

    TOTAL = $19.70

  • Construction IssuesFitting everything together just rightStabilizing funnelMaking sure our device was constructed so that we could be triggered by/trigger other devices

  • ConclusionDevice successfully accomplished what was required of itTeam members gained valuable teamwork and engineering experience
