This year in physics we mixed the class with woodshop and learned about tensegrity. Tensegrity is basically a design that uses different forces (such as compression and tension) to create an equally balanced structure. Sounds simple, right? when you first see an object that uses tensegrity it looks like its floating, but when built correctly it should hold its allowable load. Over time my work in this class definitely changed over time, and for the better. My first project in this class was a 2D project, then we slowly moved into 3D structures, and learning about tensegrity, I made a chair for my project. My first and second draft show significant growth based off of how they look and how much weight they could hold. When looking at my second draft you can tell that I took my time when creating it, and that I got more comfortable when using power tools. I took time to think about what would make a chair look and feel comfy, while staying safe. On the back rest I added a curve to fit your back and added metal support to hold a larger amount of weight. For my final draft I was put into a group that was building a completely different design. It was a new but exciting challenge. My group and I collaborated and communicated extremely well and tackled the challenge head on. We each had something that we were really good at in the class and helped out in our own ways. I am confident in my work, but by no means am I a pro. In the future I think I could've done a better job at the finishing touches (sanding, applying polyurethane, staining, ect.). I think I feel like I could improve in those ways because when i get close to finishing something and am put under the stress of a deadline in try to rush and finish it. That's a problem that I've started to fix, but I still need to work on for future projects.
