So yesterday it snowed giving me some time to do some work and I have to say my idea does seem possible after doing even more research. Also I think that during spring break I can probably finish it right there and then so there is a date for that. I also have been thinking about my speech for when I present my project to the audience. I think I will just act natural and just talking about my story and how I learned about what I need to know to make it. I was also thinking of some background music for when I walk in.

The pitch day with our posters went well like how a lot of people came to my poster and they were interested in what I had to say. My poster talked about most of what I had been telling all of you and it had lights that worked without a wire or plug. Instead the lights worked by cutting them from the wires and reattaching them together. After that I tied them to some alligator clips and I just had to open the alligator clips and connect them to the positive and negative side of the battery. Finally all I had to do was have all the paper parts on the poster that explained what I was doing and I was done.

So if you read some of my previous posts I had talked about how I am changing the look of it so it can actually work properly. I also have gotten ready to make the prototype as well as having some thought on a cool attachment to the final production. I am thinking about having the two prong charger with a battery connected to it that is detachable from the panel. In other words it is like the solar panel is charging the two prong charger and you can take it off with that energy so you can charge it. Even though this is a cool idea I will need to further investigate if this will work out.
