Mix and Flow End of Unit Project
This assignment will provide you with an opportunity to demonstrate that you have mastered the key concepts in this unit.
You are asked to design a model fluid transportation system that has valves and pumps and can move water throughout an enclosed area.
Your choice of theme is up to you. You may wish to create a water supply system for a house, log cabin or trailer. Or, you may decide to supply a system for a solar home, solar swimming pool, or solar powered vehicle: combining the key concepts from this unit on Mix and Flow of Matter and what you learned in Grade 7 Heat and Temperature.
This model does not have to be a working model, but if you think you can make it one, you'll receive recognition for your efforts. All the elements of this project are outlined below, so follow the guidelines I've set out for you.
Provide a description of the purpose of your fluid system and justification for your design.
What are the component parts of your system and what is the function of each?
How do the components act as subsystems of the fluid system you have designed?
What scientific principles that you have learned are applied to the system you have created.
Model and blueprint with flow chart outlining the direction of fluid flow.
Explaination to peers relating the model and how it functions.
