CBL – EB Artifacts of Learning

This picture sums up our experience and makes a good title pic

This is a video from the leader of our group, Alhan, and it goes into detail and sums up what we did.

We made a prototype of a coil and magnets that was able to generate about .2 Volts.

2. A summary of how we addressed light poverty in the Dominican Republic

A. ¬†Our experience started out in class when we decided to stick with the same group from our SSEP project. Alhan had a really good idea of making shake-able lights with magnets and kinetic energy. Once we had that idea we started to roll with it. We got the designs for the circuit about a week or 2 after we got the original idea, with a lot of help from Alhan’s father we were able to create a prototype that could generate about .2 volts. The magnets and coils is very trial and error so we haven’t yet been able to make a fully working circuit.

B. We connected with Alhan’s father and Mr. Brown for the magnets.

C. We made the blue prints and prototype for a magnet and coil circuit that we could use to generate electricity.

3. A summary of what you’ve learned so far.

A. The skills I’ve gained are having to be creative, learning to connect with others, and some leadership skills.

B. I feel that we have not yet met our goals but with time and work we could be done soon, and if not hopefully someone else could take over.

4. A debrief of the experience

A. The collaboration went well, I’ve never done something like this before so it was a new experience and felt like a good way to learn.

B. I think that getting my work load done on time is something I did well, and offering to help others in our group. I think I could improve on the way I handled some obstacles.

C. The whole CBL experience was really good, and taught me a lot more than a normal science class would. I learned a lot more about the outside world and it was a lot of work and felt like it was a lot more advanced then a normal science class.
