Kennenators

Our team is from Norwood Young America, Minnesota, United States. We are from Central High School, and are in the 9-12 age category. We are a team of three students in grades 11 and 12 making a house for a physics project. What were some of the challenges you faced, and how did you solve them? We had a problem with getting enough voltage to the house. We solved this by adding a supercapacitor to the house. What were your design goals? Tell us about the features in your house: We wanted to have a house with three lights and a garage door that functions on a switch. We also wanted to have neat wiring inside of the house to protect it from natural elements.
