Our group chose to work on the sprinklers, because we noticed SSIS was wasting a lot of money and water and also harming the grass. Our solution is to buy the timers, attach it to the faucet, set the time and let sprinkling only in the right time. You may ask how is this sustainable? Well, it is, because if we attach the timers, set the times, and let it run, we could save water. For the ecology, it is good, because we can save water and water is precious. For the economics, it is also great, we would reduce the water bill and overtime we will profit. For the politics, it doesn’t affect any law or rules in Phu My Hung, so it is fine. For the culture, it doesn’t affect any religious thinking or cultural thinking. Also, which religion or culture won’t like trying to help save water?
To prepare for the final proposal, the infographic and Shark Tank pitch, our group did lots of things. We had to observe, make graphs, online research, e-mail, send surveys and more. We chose each other’s part what to do and we worked together. The most interesting thing I learned during this project is that the higher the heat is, the lower the humidity is, and the lower the heat is, the higher the humidity is. Also, if the humidity is high, the percentage of the evaporation will be low, and if the humidity is low, the percentage of the evaporation will be high.
The most challenging part during this project was when we was presenting and answering questions in front of the “Sharks”, because I was really nervous and the “Sharks” sometimes asked unpredicted questions that we didn’t prepare. So before we presented, I took three deep breathes and calmed down. I think our group did well on separating jobs and on working together. Also, I think we did well on writing the proposal and choosing the paragraphs of each others for the final proposal and finishing the work fast.
If our group did a project like this, we could to do better at doing more researches and find a better solution such as making the timer with something like little bits. Also, we could write and prepare a better script.
