A quick word on posters

posted Mar 7, 2012, 3:45 PM by Greg Mills   [ updated Jan 28, 2016, 11:39 AM by Nate Delson ]

Use PowerPoint and make the dimensions 42x36 inches. You can use this poster as a template. Try to use bullets over excessive amounts of text, this is a poster not a written report! Have the rough draft of your poster available on your website by midnight on Friday of 9th week. Mike and I will bring a quarter-scale version of your poster to the 10th week meetings. You'll get a chance to see what your poster will look like and get feedback before your final draft is printed. 

This is the opportunity to use your best CAD.  Do not use graphics where sketch planes and other such things are visible.  Since you will be using a white background on your poster, it is strong recommended your graphics either have a white background or transparent background to blend seamlessly into the rest of the poster.


2nd draft due section A00 team grading scheme

posted Mar 3, 2012, 12:11 AM by Mike Morris   [ updated Mar 3, 2012, 12:11 AM by Nate Delson ]

Hey all. 

The 2nd draft of your report is due right now. Midnight on Friday March 2nd. This draft needs to be graded by each member of another team in your section. And vice versa. See the report 2 guidelines and it will highlight the fact that each member grading another report should use a different color and make comments visible and clear. The arrangement of which teams will grade which reports is listed below. If you have questions please let me know. Email your reports directly to the other team, not myself or Dr Delson. 

Team 1 --> team 9
Team 2 --> team 8
Team 3 --> team 7
Team 4 --> team 6
Team 5 --> team 1
Team 6 --> team 2
Team 7 --> team 5
Team 8 --> team 4
Team 9 --> team 3

This grading should be done over the weekend and completed by Tuesday at the latest. Please print out a hard copy and do not grade this electronically. 

Have a great weekend (however you manage that) everyone!

Hello all,

Please see the proper link for "Group 1 and 2 meetings" or just look below to see the updated meeting times.  The meetings each had to be shortened to 20 minutes each which I don't think anyone will complain about.  Professor Delson has a previous obligation which has him unavailable after 4pm so please make your best effort to have all your team at the new meeting time.  

These meetings will be at your normal workspace, so please let me know if you are in an odd or not normal work place.  

12:30pm-12:50pm      Team 8 UCSD-Ski-Friction-Tester 
12:50pm-1:10pm        Team 6 UCSD-Cell-Robot
1:10pm-1:30pm          Team 5 *SPAWAR-Robotically-Controlled-ATV  
1:30pm-1:50pm          Team 1 *Delta_Rasco_low_g-gyro  
1:50pm-2:10pm          Team 9 UCSD-Skin-to-Skin
2:10pm-2:30pm          Team 4 *Linkabit-Obscuration-Turbine-Exhaust  
2:30pm-2:50pm          Team 2 *DJO-Knee-Cycle-Tester  
2:50pm-3:10pm          Team 7 UCSD-Magnetic-Freezing
