This paragraph will appear in search results and previews for this page. Write a brief introductory text with information such as a description of your project, when was it designed and built, your motivation to solve the problem, the intended users. This will explain your project to someone who has never heard of it before.

Background[edit | edit source]

Describe the background of the project. Make sure to cover who, what, why, when and where…

Problem statement[edit | edit source]

Start your project objective statement in the format, "The objective of this project is to...". Consider what will change once your solution is built and running. Include a brief intro to the criteria and then include a table with constraints and weights (0-10 highest). Feel free to use the code from examples, such as CCAT pedal powered TV#Evaluation Criteria. The same code is used below to show the criteria for writing a good problem statement.

Construction[edit | edit source]

A very complete description of how final project is built. This large section should have lots of pictures. Use the Help:Images#Galleries and probably Template:Steps (e.g. Barrel O' Fun Worm Bin Instructions).

You can display the same gallery as a slideshow by simply adding mode="slideshow" as a parameter to the gallery code:

A good way to display a process is by making a video explaining your process. See Template:Video for information on how to add and annotate videos.

  • Spelling and grammar +15
  • Completeness of timeline +35
  • Table formatting +15
  • Timeline introduced +15
  • Separate columns for propose and actual completion date.

Bill of materials[edit | edit source]

Description of costs, donations, the fact that this is just proposed, etc. For a simple cost table, see Help:Table_examples#Cost_Table and Template:Bill of materials for two nice formats.

Quantity Material Source Cost ($) Total ($)
3 Things The Thing Store 2.20 6.60
1 Another thing - 3' x 2', Yellow The OT Store 240.00 240.00
Total Cost $246.60

Operation[edit | edit source]

This is how to operate. It should have a brief introduction and very useful images with labels. Also it may work best for your project to use the step by step how to template {{How to}}. See #Troubleshooting for an example.

Instructions[edit | edit source]

This is a plan to maintain your project. The step by step how to template {{Steps}} is most likely the best way to display a process, which will look like this:

How to Do Something:

Backpack frame bike trailer
Do something.
Aleiha's parabolic solar cooker
Do something really complicated but made simple, etc.

Team[edit | edit source]

Introduce team and semester in the following format:
