ENGINEERING A COMPASS / SUNDIAL

Jacob and Jordan designed and fabricated a custom compass/sundial apparatus with instructor, Martin Bryant, at Southern Lee High School. The engineering team was required to build at a specific 43.75º angle to match the sun’s shadow at North Carolina’s latitude. They displayed GRIT by overcoming 3D printing complications, friction and broken magnets. They also created a unique method for magnetizing the compass needle.
