Solar Array Project
Sony Cybershot digital camera- This camera has a great 5x optical zoom allowing me to take a wide variety of shots. It did take awhile to for me to get used to using a camera without a traditional viewfinder (it only has an LCD display) but it works well. I have a large 64 MB Memory Stick so that I do not have to download the photos to my computer very often. This is a 2.1 mega-pixel camera. I am taking JPEG format photos at a 1600 x 1200 resolution and then editing them in Adobe Photo Deluxe.
Sony Viao Slimbook computer- This is a very small computer that allows me to make this project happen without destroying my legs. With a three and a half hour battery it weighs just over three pounds. However, I do have to carry external drives- CD, floppy, and zip. I edit photos, lay out webpages, check and send email, create contact lists, write , etc.
Garmin Etrex GPS- This small handheld device is what I am using to check my location everyday. Teachers can use this data to teach geography and coordinates. See Where's Mike for details.
Oregon Scientific NOAA Weather Radio- This small radio allows me to know the most up-to-date weather and forecast. This is especially important if there are severe weather conditions. Thank you to David Coale for lending me his radio.
LG Cell Phone- This digital/analog phone on GTE's America Choice plan gives me access to all networks available in the United States. That means that if coverage is available then I will get it. The phone is mostly for emergency purposes. I will check voicemail once in awhile but the phone will be turned off. It also helps for making last minute reservations, etc.
