Letter to the Judges

  1. 1. 1550 Owens Store RoadCanton, GA 30115March 20, 2012Judges, Senior ProjectCreekview High School1550 Owens Store RoadCanton, GA 30115Dear Judges:Like most other people, I think, I plan to go to college, and eventually have a family andjoin the workforce. Right now I am planning on going to North Georgia College & StateUniversity and majoring in chemical or mechanical engineering. One of my biggest goalsis to be able to work on my own time doing a job that I enjoy and make a lot of moneyfrom it. I think that engineering is a great place to start, because inventors who make thatone special product can go on to be multi-millionaires.My product is an internal combustion engine model that I designed from scratch. Myresearch paper was vital to this project because I did not know much about internalcombustion engines, or commonly used engines that can be found in most everyautomobile, before starting this project. I had many previous plans, but I ended up with amotorcycle engine, a V2 engine, or a v-shaped engine with two cylinders. I originallyplanned to make a V8 engine, or a v-shaped engine with eight cylinders, but everythingbecame much more complicated than I thought. I was worried about getting fifteen hoursof work time, but once I started I was worried I would never be finished.My senior project works hand-in-hand with a future career. Engineering can unlocklimitless possible job positions. Engineers can design things from car engines, tochildren’s toys. Engineers create and design many of the things that you use daily liketoothbrushes, chairs, tables, cars, and even your home. Now that I have a fair knowledgeof the program I used for this project (Autodesk Inventor), I can make my own customengineered items, and I could possibly even design a new hit product.I feel that the senior project helped better my skills in the areas of mechanicalengineering, and that it was a great learning experience. Unfortunately, I feel that thetime spent on my senior project could have been spent better doing something else. It wasa lot of work for someone who is already working on graduating, a job, family matters,and college matters. Thank you so much for your time, I hope you enjoy my project!Sincerely,Daniel Barcus
