Bourn Lab Innovation Project with Devon Holland and Diego Fonstad

Devon Holland, 1/3/2011:

I have a goal for the Maji Mobile which is to create the next prototype where the wheels actually roll so that I can test it with real people.  I don’t know how much I can get done on that this week but I think another goal would be to learn about the Bourn Lab and what the machines do and how I might be able to use it to make the next Maji Mobile.  I also am looking forward to working with a team of people on it who might have other ideas because right now it has just been my project, and I like working with other people. My big goal is to help woman and babies in Africa, and water is a big problem so I thought I would start there.  Mr. Zindell was very excited about my project and he knows a lot about Africa and water so I know that even if this version isn’t perfect, we might be able to do something if we all work together.

Day One by Sarah Rosston ’12

Sixth graders working in the Bourn Lab spent today learning about the resources available in the lab for prototyping. They looked at the laser cutter, 3d printer and other machines. The girls are learning about the machines to work with Devon H. to improve her prototype of a stroller with wheels that can hold water so women in Africa can have easier access to water.
