For my project, I am building a dummy roping calf out of PVC pipe. I haven’t constructed things out of PVC pipe before, but I think I will be able to get the hang of it pretty quick. However, I would say that working with it is a known unknown. I’m sure I will run in to some obstacles when learning the best way to put things together. The other important part of my project will be the paint. I’m not an expert painter, but it is certainly something I can handle. It will not require too much volume of paint, so it shouldn’t take unnecessarily long to do. I have alloted work for four weeks until expo. My planned timeline is as follows:
Week 1: Build structure out of PVC
Week 2: Paint and clean up rough edges
Week 3: Extra time for everything to take longer
Week 4: Finish anything not done, prepare presentation.
I made sure to leave extra time for everything taking longer than planned, as well as planned time to work on the presentation and write-up.
