Welcome to Pioneer's Open House!

The PBL Project was about learning to design, build, and cooperate as teams. The goal was to make a house for Tony Stark that would withstand earthquakes and other seismic activity. We were given teams that were also our table groups, and were provided labs to also help our understanding of seismic activity. In the end, the goal was to make a house that could withstand seismic activity.
Our team's design was to use pillars to support the and to line up 4 planks of wood for the walls. For the roof, we cut up the extra pillars and then lay them out for the roof and used fasteners to fasten them together. We tied wire to seperate the 1st and 2nd floors.
I learned about the cause and effect of earthquakes. I also learned how to be safe during an earthquake, how to work together as a team, how to use materials wisely and be creative, and how to be prepared for coming earthquakes.
What I really enjoyed beside learning about the gases was getting to make the slides and record. Once I had finished recording (and figuring out how to use 30 Hands), I felt this sense of accomplishment. Making the slides was fun because I got to import pictures into Pic Collage and I got to arrange them and change the backround colors. Labeling the pictures and putting notes was fun, but I went a little overboard. Yet, it was an educational experience I will probably never forget.
The wall has fans sticking out of it that are attached to strings. Those strings are tied to washers which, because they are being pulled down, causes the fans to move. The wind moves fabric that creates static electricity that powers the generator. The batteries (generator) send electricity out to houses while also storing some of that energy in case of emergencies. By doing this, the invention is completely gas free and is also cheap because it is made of reusable materials. Fossil fuels won't be needed with The Redmill.
