Red Team Photo
We are the Red Team, our goals are to create a kinetic sculpture for Scott Dunning, Director of the School of Engineering Technology, that will capture the interest and the admiration of young and old alike. The proposed kinetic sculpture should attract the interest and admiration of people ranging from 5th grade girls to college students as well as Engineering Professionals. Due to such a large range of people who will be looking at our sculpture, it is imperative that the design be small enough to be portable. In order to accommodate that ideal we have specified that it will be 3 feet wide, 4 feet tall and 1.5 feet deep. It will also need to weigh less than 200 lbs in order to be transported.
Our kinetic sculpture will have no set location because it will be used to attract people towards engineering and towards the MET department. It will be able to be placed on a table or placed on a cart that can be rolled to any specified location.
Location was an important factor especially in the initial specifications. Our primary location, which was proposed by Scott Dunning, is on the second floor study area in the Engineering & Science Research Building (ESRB). Although this will be its primary location, a cart will be included that will make it easy enough to transport to other areas of campus or to presentations off campus.
Our client is Scott Dunning, Director of the School of Engineering.

Team Benchmarking Specifications:
We have done research about other products in the market and we put together a table that compares key features from other sculptures. This is very similar to what you would find in a consumer report. Below you will see a link to our teams benchmarking table.
Here are some of the subassemblies that make up our kinetic sculpture.
