Alexander Delgado's Capstone
For my capstone project, me and Terrence decided to build upon a room that was being used as a storage place for bikes. With the main focus of trying to get people into the BCYC (Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia), and people who like biking and skating together, we created the Bike Lab. Our main goal was to create a n environment in which people are able to both relax and take care of any maintenance problems for either bikes or skateboards. In order to give a helping hand to those who want to fix their rides, and those who wish to learn what it takes to take care of your bike/skateboard. During our research, we found out that many people wanted a room dedicated toward fixing their rides since most of the places that do this kind of work charge really high, and people actually wanted to know how to fix stuff for themselves, hence our motivation to teach others who wanted to learn. We also found out that there were some people who wanted to dedicate more time into the BCYC club and a way they could now do it is by being in charge of the Bike Lab room. Located inside the school, it takes advantage of being available during lunch hours where most people are free and able to go into the room if they need something at any time. During this process I learned what it takes to build a club and how much you have to dedicate time towards it in order to make it last for the years to come. In order to present this project for the future classes, me and Terrence decided to create a mock sprint, simulating the exercises that we do normally in the BCYC club. People will sprint in a bike stand for 1 minute and try their best to beat a real bike race competitor (Terrence). The winner will receive a prize in the end and if no one beats him, then we will rank people in first place second place and third place bases.
