Amulya - Plowing Ahead

Wow, time flies by so fast! It feels like I only got started yesterday, but now it's August!

I’ve been making a lot of progess on my app, and it’s running successfully in the browser. I just need to polish it up a bit and it’ll be good to go!

I did some quick calculations and realized that this configuration would be about as efficient to several times as efficient as designs we have now depending on the size of the spacecraft it was placed.

Iris - Narrowing Down My Ideas

Hi, Iris here. I’m extremely excited to move forward with my project! For the past few weeks, I had been brainstorming which problems I heard about in the news, or problems I had heard people talk about in order to come up with solutions to them. It was quite difficult narrowing down my choices, because I had so many ideas for various problems, and I couldn’t decide which to move forward with. Read more
