  • Project Requirements
    As part of the project, each team is required to construct a prototype of a toy, game, or app. That does not necessarily mean that all members of the team must be involved in all aspects of constructing the prototype. If some team members are on campus and others are not, you can think about how to delegate the responsibilities s that everyone participates.

    For example, if you need to have something 3D printed, you can design it remotely and then send it to the ICS for printing, so not everyone would physically have to be on campus to do that. If no one on your team is able to come to campus at all or meet to construct a physical prototype, you might want to think about making an app instead since that can be done completely remotely.

    Next week, you just need to propose your idea to the class, so it is not required to have a prototype constructed by then. However, you should be thinking about how you will do that because in the next stage of the project, you will need to actually make something to present to the class during your final presentation.
