- ‘Abstract’. What did you do and why was it important to you? What were your main findings from the project?
Hey guys, I am back for the last time. Our long journey in finding an alternative to expensive bottles of fresh air has finally come to an end. The final product is here, and the air purifiers are completely designed and are ready to be sold. In the making of this project, our team of scientists had to continuously make small changes and adjustments, but by the end, we answer the question : How can air purifiers be made to make it the most effective and affordable? During the beginning and the planning stages of the project, I was planning on, and had started to work on making a video. However, after I thought about it realistically, I realized that a website would work better for introducing something like a new product. When first choosing the topic for my project, I was inspired to do air purifiers because air quality, where I was living, had gotten way worse recently and wanted to do something about it. Then I started to research on already-existing air purifiers and found out about the smog free project, which really inspired me to start working on this topic and making the air purifiers public and for everyone, not just for use at homes.
When doing my research and working on this project, I was able to find out a lot about already-existing air purifiers and what sort of filters were being used. I chose the two best and inserted them into my design. In addition, to make my machine more reliable, I also researched about the unit for measuring air quality which I found out that it could be measured in how much square feet of air it could purify in an hour or two and had a rating for it. Other than that, I had many other findings in different types of filters and how they were being used now.
- What were the main challenges for you doing this project? What were your strengths and what were your weaknesses?
My main challenge was when I switched what I was going to be doing for this project. I knew it was going to be way more effective than just making a video, so I couldn’t stick to my original choice of making a video. However, what I did, actually was make a website and have a video and an infographic in it so that it would be better than just a website. I also looked at examples of websites that are made specifically for commercials. My strengths, I believe was being able to come over stops and when I stumbled upon dead ends. My weaknesses, though was that when I switched my final product, I switched it pretty late so I was starting to run out of time near the end, and had to cram a little bit in the end… but so what? Now we won’t be needing to buy these bottles of fresh air!
Just before I move on, here is a reminder of my schedule. The schedule is with the wrong presentation day though; the presentation day was pushed back to May 23rd.
