My name is Jarrad Goodoien, and I am currently a senior at Cherokee High School. I am planning on attending the University of Utah for a degree in Business Management. My goal is to manage my own business someday. My choice for my senior project was irrigation installation. I choice this topic because my dad owns an irrigation business, which I would like to take over. My final product is an underground irrigation system.
In my research paper, I discussed the importance of irrigation systems to the world’s economy. I found that over 75% of the farmland in the world is irrigated. I also discussed how irrigation systems can save water. I learned that innovative technology has been introduced to the irrigation scene, such as rain sensors. Rain sensors monitor if there was rainfall and will stop the irrigation system from running, saving water in the process. Without this research paper, I would have not been ready to complete my product.
The final product of my project is an installed underground irrigation system, which required a lot of time and effort. I did not realize how much work went into installing a system. I thought it was just putting pipe and wire into a ditch. But, we had to avoid gas and water lines already in the ground. I had to overcome a time management issue with my facilitator, who normally did not work on weekends. I realized that the world does not revolve around me and my schedule.
Without doing this project, I would have a tough time trying to find a career in irrigation. Now with this project, I now have a lot of background information in a field that I am interested in. To become a licensed irrigation contractor, a person must pass a background exam on basic irrigation knowlegde. I plan to major in Business Management and hopefully one day own my own irrigation company. I think this project has put me in a position to accomplish that one day.
I think that the senior project is an excellent opportunity for seniors to find something they are passionate about. In my experience, I think that a future in irrigation interests me. I would like to thank you for your time and interest in my project.
