The other two back-up research projects

(Topic: To observe the workings of and build a small compression operated LED)

Statbox:

Time Required
Very Short (≤ 2 days)
Prerequisites
Simple research on electronics
Material Availability
Minimal shopping required
Cost
Very Low (Under $20)
Safety
Post project payouts   
No risk whatsoever
A shuttlecock that flashes a quick burst of light when hit


A project that revolves around building small electronics. We have decided to fuse electronics and badminton.

When a person shakes this small compression operated LED, it lights up. Upon opening this up, we discovered how it works. From bottom to top, it is laid out like this: Coin batteries, spring, electronics(unaccessible without completely destroying the light) and LED bulb inside casing. Shaking the light causes centriugal force to press the batteries upwards inside the case onto the spring, transfering power to the electronics and lighting the LED.

Using the same shockingly simple electronics and the same concepts, we can wire up a shuttlecock so that hitting it compresses the batteries against the spring. This way, the shuttlecock flashes a brilliant blue or maybe pink or whatever colour you may please when hit. Imagine playing in an unlighted Sports Hall with flashing shuttlecocks! It's almost a dream.

(Topic: To observe how much of radiation (we will not create that much of a radiation that will post a threat to us) can a plant withstand for three days.) 


Warning*: Please do not carry out this project without supervision for there is radiation in this project. This project requires utmost safety precautions taken.


Statbox:

Time Required
Short (3 days)
Prerequisites
Simple research on radiation safety(you will need this) and chemistry.
Material Availability
Chemicals that when mix does not explode and give off a fair amount of radiation that will not post a threat to us.
Cost
Medium ($50 and above)
Safety
Post project payouts   
Very high precaution and supervision needed
Observe how much of radiation can a plant survive


We will attempt to use chemicals to imitate the state of radiation and expose them to plants for three days and observe for any difference.
