The problem with the grease car last year is you make it, then your done it drives off and you probably wont see it again, you may have pictures or videos of it but it isn't physically there. If you made a bout, first you had to finish it, then when you finish it, how many days a year do you thing that you might actually use it. Maybe making a video doesn't sound as cool, but it actually can benefit you much more than building a boat or altering a car to make it run on grease.
Yes both of those ideas are very cool, but the videos are also cooler than people realize. First, I am looking forward to using the special Padcaster case that we get for the iPads so we turn them into our own portable little Hd camera that shoots amazing video and excellent audio quality, also it may sound like a history project or something, but is actually pretty cool to learn about the history and origins of the school, and maybe compare it today, the things that were important back then compared to now. What were the problems, what were the academics like. How much homework was there. What were the most memorable moments and on and on, the amount if interesting questions are endless.
Sure, you may not be building a boat, or making a car running on grease, but, what you are getting is a set of skills that you will be able to use for the rest of your life, a video that you will be able to show to just about anybody at just about any time that you would like. If you wanted to make a boat, look it up on the internet or take wood shop, if you wanted to make a car that runs on grease look it up, or take an engineering course. Why I like this senior project is because it specifically references to Fenn. You wouldn't be able to do it if Fenn didn't exist.
