"As you make a prototype, assume you are right and everyone else is wrong. When you share your prototype, assume you are wrong and everyone else is right." ~ Diego Rodriguez Telechea.
The fourth week was for developing prototypes of the projects that we were working on in our teams. The first phase for us to develop low fidelity prototypes. The week also involved submission of a list of materials that are required to be outsourced.
We also had a chance to present our prototypes to the supervisors and faculty mentors. We received some constructive ideas from them. This was very helpful as it sharpened our ideas towards perfectioning them into a final product. Some of the prototypes that we came up with are shown in the pictures insert;
This week was really stressful (in a good way of course) as I could hit deadlocks during prototyping when circuits and codes didn’t behave as I expected, but with the help of mentors and fellow interns we managed to bypass the errors.
Will Moyo also introduced my team to another team (UV us) from Rice University. It’s a great experience getting to know these guys. We had two meetings, one on WhatsApp and another one on zoom. We are all working on the same project (UV Sterilization) and we agreed to share ideas, challenge and help each other to achieve a common goal.
Every week is very unique to me.
