My name is TJ Weiss. I am a senior at Etowah High School. For my senior project, I decided to build an FM radio and learn how to program it. I wanted to learn more about how electronics. I would like to attend Chattahoochee Technical College and transfer to Kennesaw State University or the University of North Georgia. The career I would like to explore is in the industrial maintenance field, working on programmable control boards.
The topic of my research paper was exploring the impacts of electronics. I researched the worldwide expansion of technology, the major impact on society, and the advancements of technology. I learned that the first practical application of electricity was the telegraph. Bluetooth was not invented till the late 1990's. Also, I learned that technology was incorporated into televisions and appeared in mobile phones, computers, and laptops.
My product for my senior project is building or programming an FM radio. It relates to my research paper because it deals with electronics. The obstacles I had to overcome were managing my time wisely at home and not having the radio for a week, as well as not having a soldering iron. I achieved success in completing my product by putting together and soldering all the parts together. My product was definitely a learning curve, time consuming, and hard to put together. I had to buy new parts every time the soldering was wrong.
My topic and research paper relates to a career in industrial maintenance engineering or electronics engineering. Even though I enjoyed learning about electronics and what makes them work, I plan to work in the industrial maintenance industry.
The senior project was a long process, but I had a rewarding experience in creating a product from the beginning to the end. I would like to thank you for taking the time to judge my product.
