Progress Report#4

12/2/2014
Because the previous week our group has worked mostly on the board game itself, the
week of 11/25/2014­12/2/2014 we have dedicated most of our efforts into the planning of
writeups and deliverables, which are two manuals/instructions and rules.
‚óŹ While¬†meeting¬†on¬†Monday,¬†we¬†have¬†all¬†discussed¬†and¬†shared¬†ideas¬†about¬†the¬†layout¬†of
the¬†manuals¬†and¬†rules,¬†as¬†well¬†as¬†instructions,¬†which¬†are¬†still¬†to¬†comeÕĺ
‚óŹ We¬†have¬†as¬†well¬†made¬†some¬†enhancements¬†to¬†the¬†game¬†itself,¬†which¬†improved¬†overall
look¬†and¬†playing¬†experience¬†of¬†the¬†gameÕĺ
‚óŹ Ivan¬†has¬†given¬†Rene¬†more¬†interesting¬†materials,¬†such¬†as¬†plastic¬†glass,¬†which¬†Rene¬†is
making fit into the game. In general, we have decided to make the game insides
visible to kids, so that they will have more interest of it, and eventually of electrical
engineering.
‚óŹ Enrique¬†as¬†well¬†has¬†made¬†research¬†about¬†the¬†field¬†itself,¬†and¬†about¬†some¬†of¬†the¬†best
practices of the electrical engineering, which we are going to use in both game
building¬†and¬†as¬†an¬†information¬†to¬†educate¬†our¬†target¬†audienceÕĺ
‚óŹ We¬†have¬†been¬†working¬†with¬†the¬†gathered¬†researches.¬†Iurii¬†has¬†started¬†to¬†work¬†on
questions¬†and¬†more¬†facts¬†to¬†put¬†on¬†flash¬†cardsÕĺ
‚óŹ We¬†have¬†decided¬†that¬†for¬†now¬†our¬†questions¬†and¬†answers¬†are¬†going¬†to¬†be¬†about¬†the
field of electrical engineering itself and as well about adjacent disciplines like physics
and¬†science.¬†This¬†will¬†be¬†done¬†to¬†demonstrate¬†the¬†prototype¬†of¬†our¬†board¬†gameÕĺ
‚óŹ ¬†We¬†are¬†still¬†going¬†to¬†research¬†some¬†sources¬†about¬†the¬†how¬†to¬†best¬†ask¬†questions¬†and
educate¬†children¬†in¬†this¬†formÕĺ
‚óŹ Ivan¬†actively¬†gathers¬†and¬†brainstorms¬†about¬†the¬†best¬†layouts¬†to¬†use¬†for¬†our¬†manuals
and rules.
Overall, our group this week is mostly working on the deliverables. Because most of
the board game is done, we just have minor design and game layout enhancements to make. Now our efforts are focused on the deliverables and final write ups, as we are approaching to the final stretch. Manuals and the big write up that the professor will tell us more about
