Dear Amazing Friends, Family, and Colleagues,
I hope this message finds you all doing fabulous! I am writing to ask a favor of you. I am currently teaching a course called "Engineering for Social Good" to Sonoma Academy 10th-12th graders. As part of our online curriculum, students were challenged to develop and generate proposals for design ideas to serve populations that have been impacted by the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Last Friday students completed website ROUGH DRAFTS that include a proposal description, and rough prototype designs on paper/CAD, etc. Those proposals have now been organized into one location for judging and feedback. This is where I need your help.
If you have a few moments, I would be honored if you visited THIS site and navigate to the proposals and prototypes designs on each site. Skim each, and when done please choose your top 3 favorites and "RATE" each out of five stars. Additionally, if the spirit moves you, I would be honored if you left a comment providing feedback to any of the projects. My goal is to have all projects rated by end of day on Wednesday, 4/30.
Note: these are simply proposals forcing student reflection on identifying and filling gaps in our community through a lens engineering and service. I am pitching this to students as a "Hackathon" where the highest rated projects will receive extra support to move forward with their ideas.
Thank you so much for your time,
