I use this approach when students want to pursue a personal project. I edit it every year and it is designed with a level of flexibility in mind. For example, prototypes are not always required, and sometimes they are. Forgive the quality as time constraints are very, very real.
Any and all feedback is welcomed as this may have the potential to really be a versatile tool for passion projects, genius hours, stem projects, and of course shop projects.
