I've titled this photo, "Strippers and blow."
Tonight we had a huge testing push to put our favorite pump through an obstacle course.
Handsome Dan built our prototype BABI. We're not allowed to have a pressure vessel but we need a way to contain the air long enough for the sensors to get a reading. So we've designed something that will gently release pressure once it hits a certain threshold. We call it the Bernoulli Air Bath Intensifier (BABI). It kinda works! (We did the math and it checks out.)
We're going to need even MORE testing in order to be conclusive but that's kind of the point of this whole project. The team always seems to enjoy the build and testing process and it's a relief to be doing science and engineering with hands on materials. The photo below was taken at 11:00 pm on a Wednesday so it's safe to say that this cheery group is having a good time.
