Cold, Hard Proof of Concept – Annalise Irby

This week, JetSet divided into two distinct teams, to better tackle our many requirements for the upcoming midterm presentation. The Biomed team, Anjali M. and Isha P., were responsible for creating our Powerpoint presentation; they also gathering photos and images from our blog posts to create a complementary visual display (read more about their adventures...

Who Doesn’t Love a Field Trip? – JetSet Explores the World of Springs- Anjali Mani

Everyone remembers the days of piling into a bright yellow school bus, destined for the museum or a park for a day away from classes. My team, JetSet, had the opportunity to relive those childhood memories, but instead, we left campus in Erin’s car to embark on a voyage to Home Depot. As I recently... Continue Reading →

I’m especially enthusiastic about this stage of the design process because I... Continue Reading →

Time for Take-off – Annalise Irby

We have finally finished and submitted our 24 page (!) design proposal. I feel very professional but also slightly terrified, because all of our planning, research, and careful weighing of facts is over. Now our team must move directly into the prototyping phase where, judging by my past experience with engineering projects, all the hidden... Continue Reading →

What the Customer Needs – Annalise Irby

This week, JetSet delved deep into the mind of our consumer, the high altitude traveller - not such a mysterious place, considering that all four of us have flown on airplanes ourselves. Of course, we can’t rely solely on personal experience from such a homogenous group (adolescent girls); so before our first memo was published,... Continue Reading →
