I designed and created two projects this semester. The first was an up-cycling project that utilized used or unwanted materials. I loved the chance to breathe new life into something old and make it new again. For the project I designed and welded a balancing wine holder. For my final project I wanted to design something that I could display at my new job and be a conversation starter. It also embodies both this class and the other course I took with this instructor, Flow Visualization. I really enjoyed both these courses and wanted to showcase them. So for my final project I chose to build a vortex fountain. I am really proud of what I’ve accomplished in this course and have learned a lot.
