Genius Project Post 1: Overview

February 2nd, 2017


The Concept: For the 2016-2017 school year, we are embarking on what our school calls the “Genius project” derived from Google’s “20-time” concept. It is the concept of giving people 20% of their work time to do what they want. While this might sound like just an excuse for students to slack off during English class, there are some restrictions. Students must choose a topic that advances society in some way, and work on it through senior year.

My Project: 



I have a solid idea, and I’m ready to begin: What’s your plan? What was your inspiration? What do you think your next steps are?

  • Topic: For my project, I will be making a series of Internet Connected Devices, (ICD’s for the remainder of this blog post) that will serve to improve different aspects of life.
  • Inspiration: Since the age of 8, I’ve been experimenting with Arduino’s and writing code for micro-controllers. From the simple – blinking a light – to the more advanced, such as remotely controlled garage door openers, I’ve been making things for a while now and would like to put them to use.
