Milestone 2 Develop Strategy and Work Toward Final Car Design Schedule for: week of 9-13 February. Deliverable: 3-5 pages in your lab notebook before next week s lab Week s Activities The first of this week s activities is for you to finalize your (winning!) strategy so you can move on to your design concept and then detailed design. Second you will implement in lab (manufacture/assemble) the car you designed last week. 1. Strategy Selection A strategy is a feasible framework for achieving a challenging goal. The term “strategy” is frequently used loosely in non-scientific fields to dignify a hoped-for outcome. In technical fields the connotation is that the strategy is feasible, i.e. not contravening the laws of physics or expected constraints on the project. For instance, is planning to crush cans in less than 10 seconds a violation of power constraints? The goal obviously is to do well in the contest. The challenge comes from the fact that about 150 other people have the exact same goal. The concept of a framework is that it is an initial top-level approach which you can proceed to detail with confidence. Having explored your kit and the contest and developed three preliminary strategies (Milestone 1), you are in a position to refine these and determine your winning strategy. Do experiments and analyses as required, break your strategy into
