We began the meeting with a 5-minute video about the Space Escalator project, created by Andy from the AP Physics C course. This led to a discussion on the space elevator and carbon nanotubes.
Following the technical portion of the meeting, club members broke into groups to develop a formal scope of work for the projects under consideration (laser, rocket, superconductor).
We talked about what makes for a good Scope of Work document, and used information developed from our previous meeting as a starting point.
We will continue to work on these with the goal of submitting them to the science department head prior to mid-term week.
There will be no meeting next week due to mid-term exam preparations. Next meeting will be Wednesday, February 3, at 3:10 p.m. in Room 3033.
