Once you're done with that, go to www.sba.gov and click on Starting and Managing. For your final small business project, you will create a business plan for a small business idea that you would like to propose. Check out each part of the Writing a Business Plan sections. You will create and present your idea, asking me and a panel of shark tank investors for a capital investment to get your business started.
I apologize for the confusion last week. Between STEAM Symposim, STEM recertification, a long meeting for me, and robotics/band/Latin Convention for you all, the week did not progress exactly according to plan.
Last Friday, Prof Williams and I lectured surveying, and I will do the same for Monday's class.
Tue/Wed: survey small group will present and classes will try out doing a level survey with our dumpy levels. Do you think our classroom is level?
Thu/Fri: Small groups for thermo/heat transfer/PV=nRT will present and I will fill in any needed info
Mon/Tue: Small groups will present combustion engines and other apps of thermo
Wed/Thu: Psychrometrics/review for quiz
Fri/Mon: Surveying/therm quiz (yes, I will give different quizzes!)

The usual topics in this unit are:
internal combustion engine: http://questgarden.com/81/18/9/090504103403/index.htm
psychrometrics: the best chart ever and how it is used
surveying: the transit and theodolite, maps of the earth, Buckminster Fuller (we have survey equipment to try out)
PV=nRT: the best party small-talk equation to know and dimensional analysis
and topics that you suggest.
On Monday/Tuesday, we will form small groups based on interest to research the topic, answer specific questions, and direct a class activity. I will meet with each group to go over the specifics that I want you to include in your presentation on Friday/Monday.
By Topic and Project:
In the remaining weeks of April, we need to finish speakers (have you learned the essential lesson that engineering projects take far longer than expected?), 3-D printing (I am starting one pack tomorrow), and learning some thermo topics via lecture/notes and active learning.
In May, you will create a resume and a 60-180 sec video of you in Engineering. You will also create a business plan for a small business of your choosing, using the SBA outline for proposing a small business, and you will present your idea via a Shark Tank scenario (I'd love volunteers for the judge panel, if any of your parent are interested!)
