#3 - Team 3D Prototyping Project Deliverable 2: This assignment was the first that we were able to show off some of the progress we had made in the Fab Lab. Our team worked hard together to maximize our class time and to ensure that all other meetings went as smooth as possible. The teamwork that we had is what enabled us to be so efficient in our work, and I feel that now if I need any help or if I need partner's for anything I know three guys to call. Thanks for making the work a breeze fellas.
#4 - Team 3D Prototyping Project Final: The final name of the toy we designed was chosen to be: The Memorization Station. We added a white board that is held to the game by magnets, a full set of letters to fill in the blanks, and lastly a set of rules that change depending on the players age or skill level. This Final project required us to present our finished prototype to the class and demonstrate how the game is played which was great practice for a real product pitch scenario.
#5 - Creative Person Resume: The creative person's resume was one of my favorite assignments during this course. This was an interesting assignment because I had to step into the shoes of one of the most influential pianist/composers of the late romantic period in classical music (late 19th - early 20th century): Sergei Rachmaninoff. This task required me to dive deep into his past and list all of his education, accolades, and accomplishments in order to properly give him justice in a mock resume. This was fun for me because I adore his work and I got to listen to his music while I conducted research.
#6 - The IA speaker series #1: This event was not was I was expecting to say the very least. I am no dancer, and I often find actions like dancing in public embarrassing and silly. I think this event helped me loosen up a little and that is why I chose it to be in my top ten. I played around during this event. I laughed and joked with friends even though I was VERY hesitant to start. The best part of the event hands down was the open floor activity where someone started as our eyes and we swapped person to person without talking. Being passed about by your friends unknowingly sure is unnerving but it is kinda fun at the same time.
