Intro to Engineering and Design Project

November 9, 2018 - Uncategorized -

Hi my name is Caroline Pope and I’m a ThinkSTEAM ambassador from New York. Recently in my Intro to Engineering and Design class, we had the opportunity to redesign a product of our choosing. I chose to redesign a candle jar because candles can be hard to light without burning your fingers. For my redesign I took a mason jar and drilled holes in the jar at different heights, the holes were big enough to fit a kitchen match through. When not in use the candle holes were covered by pieces of cork to prevent the wax from seeping out. Watch the video to see the final product in action.
