Cycle Charger Weekly Log
1/22/18 - 1/28/18
Brainstormed project ideas as a group. Decided on creating a portable charging stick that is charged by riding one's bike around.
1/29/18 - 2/4/18
As a group we decided to do independent research and material gathering this week. Each member was researching certain aspects and taking note of the things needed to complete our project. .
We created project page and weekly log page. Researched ways to generate electricity through the use of magnets on the wheel itself. Researched the materials needed to make our project actually happen. We set out to create a list of things needed to accomplish the project.
