|What are some PROS about this shelter design?||What are some CONS of this shelter design?||What team # are you evaluating?||Your Team Number: (number only!)||Whose shelter are you evaluating? (# only)|
|It has a mirror roof that reflects the light from the sun, and it has a ramp for the penguin to easily get in.||On the inside, there is not a lot of room for the penguin to live, and the door is hard to get in.||1|
|Pro: Mirror is a good material to stop radiation.|
Pro: There are multiple walls just in case the door fails, so the heat will hit the wall instead of the penguin.
Pro: The door is thick and will not let heat in.
|Con: Door is hard to figure out, and is hard to push. Opening door pushes up the wall on the inside, so it may mess up the measurements and make the shelter less effective.|
Con: The roof is not glued on, so the penguin can fall out. (It did.) Our roof was only PARTIALLY glued on. I know you can't do that to a mirror, but this group could have figured out a creative way to get their penguin in the shelter that isn't through the roof.
|walls that block the airflow||It falls apart very easily||1|
|mirror radiation protection, functioning door and wall inside to block air flow, 4 walls||Mirror not attached to roof,||1|
|large mirror, easy accessible door/shuts back down on itself, walls inside the cup||not connected to styrofoam cup,||1|
|The mirror well prevents radiation. The Styrofoam was moderate at preventing conduction.||Thicker Styrofoam would slow down the speed of conduction and convection, warming up the shelter||1|
|The stair way was a good idea but that was the only good thing about it.||The top of the shelter is not glued ob at all and there was nothing in it.||1|
|The door works well and the mirror on top prevent radiation.||The roof isn't glued on and can easily come off.||1|
|very creative and the design would make a great insulator||Mirror wasn't taped to the shelter and the door isnt made for the penguins||1|
|It has stilts that minimize the surface area touching the heat pad||The door could have been much better||2|
|It is elevated off the ground, has a good working door||Open space around the door, no radiation protection||2|
|styrofoam on top||the door||2|
|The had used Styrofoam to keep the radiation out.||The door can not stay shut it opens on its own||2|
|stays off of the floor of the shelter||Door does not close||3|
|They had a good roof and they had a good idea with the wood on the bottom. Also it's very pretty. They have a great and neat blueprint.||There a lot of holes in it and their door is really thin.||3|
|very artistic, stops conduction well||duck tape is not a very good insulator, hotter inside||3|
|Functional door. Good materials used. Good slant. Thick wooden floor.||Used hot clue. Many cracks and big holes in the intersection of walls and roof. Clay was starting to crack.||4|
|This shelter looks very sturdy||They put cotton balls on the roof, which is a bad idea. They also put in a ramp.||4|
|good walls, cool door||It has a sloppy glue job,||4|
|We liked how they used the wood and all of the objects||they could have made it more sturdy.||4|
There are no holes or cracks to let heat in, it is sturdy, and the penguins can easily get into the shelter.
|They used hot glue which melted and used a thin coot piece for there door which would have allowed heat in.||5|
|They have a good door and walls inside blocking air flow||Not great radiation protection, clay cracked allowing air in||5|
|Little blocked corner for the penguin to go in. Semi insulated roof. Walls are supported on the inside and out.||Walls were a little brittle. Door was short. Could've had better insulated floors.||5|
|It is made out of wood||The door should of been more tick||5|
|They used clay as the walls which was a smart idea. The cotton balls and the cardboard worked really well. Also we like the drawing.||The door isn't very good and there are cracks on the wall. Also the glue is coming off.||5|
|It stays withing the shelter limits for builing, it has good insulators, it is accessible to penguins(maybe), it has a :) on it, the person who write it has good handwriting, and it didn't have a 0% survival rate.||It gave the penguins a very small chance to survive, some of the insulators are not the best type of insulators, and to the penguins it might be hard to figure out how to open or close the door.||6|
|their roof was detachable||only has one layer||6|
|good door||roof is coming off, has some gaps, not good insolator||6|
|We like how they used the canton balls and the little design on the sides.||They could have glued it better.||6|
|thick layers , colorful design,||+ 10cm floor falling off no door||7|
|Walls and floor are very thick.||The floor is not attached to the shelter very well and there is no door.||7|
|The shelter is thick and is very soft.Also the shelter it radiation proof because of the ducktape.||The door is just open don't close.||7|
|Insolated well, door easily accessible.||Floor isn't fully attached.||7|
|It has a thick floor and walls||It has no door and walls kind of melted and disconnected from floor||8|
|dont really has pros||its to heavy. penguin does not have room to fit in there.no door, and is breaking apart, and there a lot of gaps and cracks in it to let the heat in||8|
|This group has a thick floor, and has some good ideas that could have worked.||Door is wide open and not covered at all, they had very thin clay and 0% of survival.||8|
|cool hut||lost got only 0%||8|
|used clay for walls||used foam for bottom||8|
|Cool design, good thinking.||Not well insolated at all, door open to heat.||8|
|Cool design, good thinking.||Not well insolated at all, door open to heat.||8|
|Walls were very thick. Insulated walls and floor. Strong stable exterior.||Walls started separating a bit from heat. The door wasn't very effective. Needed more insulation on the floor.||9|
|nice door to get in and out of sturdy, nice clay||a lot of air ways||9|
|It had 47% survival rate, it stayed withing the measurements, it had good insulaators, it looks like it was costructed very well, and it stayed withinf the limits for building||The door is not very accessible, there is no ramp to get into the shelter, and the survival rate was not over 50% leaving the penguin with less than 50% chance to survive.||10|
|Roof is held together by tape. The roof is like a taped, cotton ball, styrofoam sandwich. Functional felt door. Light weight shelter, very durable.||Hot glue floor, melted.||11|
|Pro: The walls are a thick material, so it blocks convection well.|
Pro: The roof, although thin, is devoid of holes for radiation to jump through.
Pro: They used their wall material as a roof in addition to the tape, so radiation can't jump THROUGH the tape like it does windows.
|Con: Door is black, which absorbs heat instead of reflecting it. Putting a piece of white paper or a different color felt for the door would've been more effective.|
Con: They could have been more thorough with the hot glue-ing, because it leaves holes in the glue by the floor and walls allowing easier conduction and convection.
Con: There is a whole between the floor where the door goes, leaving a big gap in the shelter.
|Made of really good foam||Door stays open when pushed||11|
|mirror(reflecting light)||door is very thin/ open||12|
|The shelter has two layers of protection on the outside (egg carton and duct tape) and has no holes are mirror that reflects light from lamps.||The door has a cloth that is very thin which allows heat in and it gets stuck leaving a hole in the shelter.||12|
|Mirror to protect radiation, thick floor||Big open door with space around it, bigger than the size requirement||12|
|They had a mirror at the top and there are cotton balls and egg cartons||Their door is not very good. It is made of tissue paper and is very flimsy||12|
|It has a mirror to reflect the radiation.||The door isn't the best and lets heat pass through||12|
|Egg cartons were put to good use||Very poor door and measurements are incorrect||12|
|Their survival % was 59%.||there is no cons||12|
|Cotton balls were a good idea, and so were the egg carton||It's too big, and the door was pathetic.||12|
|Egg carton floor, reflective material on roof||Too big||12|
|Its very stable and well put together||Door can easily let air in||12|
|This group used cardboard and Styrofoam to make their walls thick and strong.||This group used duck tape which was not tested and they had no door which most likely effected the outcome of their penguins survival.||13|
|good insulators||no close able door||13|
|They have a good door and have a good way of blocking heat out. The egg carton they used was really good for conduction.||The doorway could have let heat in and it would be hard to take the penguin in and out. The are also some holes on the bottom where heat could get in.||14|
|Its very insulated and has a productive door.||The walls and floors are a little thin.||15|
|It's sturdy, has no holes and has cardboard for the floor. They also used scotch tape instead of hot glue which is good because the glue melts. There is also cotton on the roof, floor and walls.||The door doesn't function properly. There's not a lot of room inside.||15|
|Thick walls with no holes, good door, insulation inside||Door weakly attached||15|
|It is cool when you touch the shelter because of the material.||The door is facing out of the shelter so the hat can get in.||15|
|its nice and colorful nice way to enter||the door is falling off||15|
|Insolated very well with egg carton and cotton surrounding, pink paint to reflect radiation.||Door floppy and not attached properly.||15|
|Nice use of paper machete,||The door could have been a bit more closed than just a flap.||15|
|Cardboard material||Holes in the cardboard/ cracks in the walls||16|
|That the shelter had 64.79% survival rate, it is neatly constructed, its has a door and a ramp for the penguin to get in, and it blocked conduction, convection, and radiation.||The door world probably not have let the penguin get into the shelter.||17|
|Really thick walls. No holes or gaps Rubber functional door. Polyisocyanurate helps reflect the light off from the roof. Big slant to prevent convection.||Used a staple, which is a conductor. Used hot glue.||17|
|Pro: Walls are very, very, very thick which is a very effective way at stopping convection.|
Pro: Blocks are glued together well, and aren't uneven in terns of glueing.
Pro: The door opens into a ramp, which is an easy way for a penguin to travel. It's not stairs, which is good.
|Con: Door is black, which is a color that absorbs heat instead of reflecting it, like using something white or taping a white paper on top of it.|
Con: Door does not naturally fit the door frame, allowing convection to happen.
Con: Some of the polyester is chipped or has holes in it, which isn't as effective as having full blocks.
|completely overbuilt made of insanely thick wood floor, completely over the top foam with a reflective top||only one con... mine isn't as good as yours. Honestly this thing is amazing||17|
|Thick layers, good door, used good insulators.||inside is to small||17|
|easy way to enter ,good thick insulators,||door can't open||17|
|Very Thick, Closed off, Little space for penguin to move, Used very strong insulators, Easy to access flap that insulates,||Not a lot of space for penguin (Works either way) Steep ramp||17|
|the shelter is thick so it can stop conduction and radiation and convection.Also they had made a ramp for the penguin to enter in .||The door is not best mad their is lots of cracks on the side of the door for air to come threw.||17|
|The layers and the neatness were really good||The door doesn't close all the way||17|
|has a slide on the inside to get in and out of the shelter||slide would be hard for a penguin to get up||17|
|It looks nice from the outside and the wood was a good idea.||Needed a better entrance.||17|
|cool design||they used duck tape||18|
|They had a functional door and cardboard sides and floor. The roof was duct tape and an egg carton which did really well.||Penguin would have a really hard time moving and pretty thin walls and ceiling .||18|
|Good door, structurally sound double layered floor and walls||Door in ceiling as well allowing air in and radiation a direct path into the shelter||19|
|it less then 10 cm. somewhat colorful||it has two doors and its falling apart and poorly built||19|
|Very accessible , within size limit||VERY Open to heat, a few too many openings,||19|
|Cardboard is good at stopping conduction. Styrofoam can further prevent conduction.||Multiple doors and thin cardboard in some areas allowed convection to warm the shelter. There is nothing to prevent radiation. A bigger shelter with thicker material would help slow conduction and convection.||19|
|The box was very isolated with cardboard and some Styrofoam.||There is very big gaps in the shelter.||19|
|Insulated walls and semi insulated floor.||A bunch of holes. Not very productive door. Not to good of floor.||20|
|Styrofoam is really good as a wall to fight convection, 54% survival,||hole in top of the house lets heat get in easily, cardboard will hurt penguin and does not let penguin get in easily||20|
|cardboard was a good choice to keep heat out||open corners, open hole||20|
|used foil over foam||bottom isn't good to keep heat out||20|
|it was a good idea for the cork and the clay at the bottom||There door had poor insulation||21|
|The tin foil well prevented radiation. The cork was a great at stopping conduction of the tin foil. The cork was a overall good insulator. The clay definitely helped prevent conduction.||tin foil did not need to be added around the whole shelter. As a result conduction accelerated the speed of conduction and heat.||21|
|Wine cork is a good insulator||Tape door should have been stronger||21|
|Pro: Mirrors were a good material to use for the roof and helped stop radiation.|
Pro: This group used a thick floor so that conduction wouldn't be as much of a problem compared to having a thinner floor.
|Con: One con is that the walls of this shelter are black, which absorbs instead of reflecting light/heat. If there was a lighter color clay or paper over the walls the shelter would have functioned better.|
Con: The entrance doesn't cover the whole wall, so after the penguin walks in and the door falls back into place there will still be an open space for heat to travel in through convection.
|Mirrors, cotton balls w/ tape for floor (we used)||Magnets, Black clay may melt faster, felt like theyw ere piling things on||22|
|very reflective,||Foil, Very dark||22|
|The mirrors and tin foil well protected the penguin from radiation. prevented the mirrors and tin foil from warming the shelter by using a good insulator.||The tin foil was unnecessary and accelerated the speed of conduction. Magnets are a conductor and the use of them for the entrance accelerates the warming speed of the penguin.||22|
|It had reflecting mirrors||Everything else was bad||22|
