Our group decided to chose the Sprinkler problem, because I thought is was a big problem in SSIS, since we were wasting money and water, and it was also harming the plants on the fields. We tried to many solutions including little bits, humming birds etc. but they just didn’t work, so we decided to buy timers that toggle the hoses on and off. We were planning to set the timers to water at the best times of the day so that we the water doesn’t evaporation and the plants don’t die. Our solution is ecological because it is helping the plants, it’s also good for the school’s budget, though you might not think so because we are purchasing items it actually reduces the water bill a lot and overtime we will profit. This does not effect the rules of the school Phu My Hung, so it’s perfectly legal, it also doesn’t go against any religions or culture.
To prepare for the final proposal, infographic and the pitch, we had to observe, make graphs, online research, e-mailing, survey and more. During this period, I learned a lot of new things, about presenting and water and things like that, but I think the most interesting thing I learned was that when the humidity level is high the evaporation rate is low, and vice versa. Interesting right?
I think our group did well on teamwork and researching, just about everything went smoothly. But what I think we really messed up on was when we presented to the shark tank. We cut each other of before we complete the whole script and so the whole presentation was half as long as we planned. If we did this again, we could try to find a solution that included fifth graders in some way, and we could try to make something instead of buying it. Anyways that was our project, hope you enjoyed!
