If you don’t want to read this long wall of text then I don’t blame you.
So I have this Elementary design class for Mechanical Engineering and last Thursday I had a presentation to do with my group for a Rube Goldberg project.
As some background info, we were last with basically the worst looking project in comparison to everyone else. In this project, the ending step was to mix Diet Coke
and Mentos. To make a long story short, our delivery system to mix the two prematurely activated and the whole bottle exploded in my face.
SO after THAT whole debacle,
Come today we get our grades, which were all publicly displayed on the board in front of the whole class
93, 99. 94, 95, 96, 81
Who got the 81? My Group. Not a shabby score in the slightest but I really wanted to get that A and in comparison to everyone else (as I expected) our score was the worst. What else was listed was our peer review score from the other groups with ours being the lowest at a 43/50 and pretty much everyone else had a 50.
So the professor (bless him) decides to out the class saying that they didn’t give my group enough points because it didn’t work apparently and to him it did.
And honestly, it actually worked in the preparation before
I felt like the whole mishap with the Diet Coke exploding in my face was the main focus and i dont think anyone saw the test that we ran with our machine. Granted it didn’t work like in the video because most of it was soaked in Diet Coke.
