Hydraulic Load Arm

By: Rohan and Akash

Hyrdaulic Project

Written Part

We really enjoyed this Science Project. The feelings we had were Happy and Excited. We were happy and excited because this project was very exciting. When we were trying to pick up the bottle, that made us happy and excited because it actually worked! Next time, if we had a chance to change our "Hydraulic Load Arm" we would have added wheels to the bottom. I say this because as you can see in the video...Myself and Akash push the base towards the Water Bottle. A big challenge we faced was when I (Rohan) accidentally broke the wood standing vertically. This was a challenge because we couldn't glue it back. So finally, we fixed this problem by clean all the glue stuck and then glued it back on the other side.
