Trip to Lighthouse Harbor Marina

Last week, the team traveled to Lighthouse Harbor Marina on route 507 for a second large-scale test of the device. With the use of a boat, tech team member Kristian Sonsteby created waves to help us test the anchoring system and get a reading on the oscilloscope. Photos of the experience can be found on our Facebook page.

Minus interruption from sporadic downpours, last Thursday was a productive day. We learned that strong waves bend the dampening plates out of shape, and that we need a stronger pole running through the center of the anchoring system. Otherwise, the readings we got on the oscilloscope were up to par.

Our Own Circuit Boards!

Thanks to the advice of one of our amazing mentors, our Inventeam has designed and created our very own circuit boards that will make our device as efficient possible! So far we have one board completed.
