A major part of your final mark is your culminating activity, meant to be a personal exploration of the skills and knowledge that you find interesting in the course. This project is meant to take a minimum of 25 hours, and should be broad in scope. While a good number of students use this as an opportunity to build a brand new computer system from scratch, the OBP does not have to involve spending money. You could complete something using the resources we have in class (ie. the Lego Robotics or the Raspberry Pi), or a program done using several free programming packages.
You will need to complete the attached OBP Proposal Template (your report can be in point form), and submit it no later than next Friday (September 16th) . Make sure you use specifics ("the Internet" is not a source...a specific website or webpage would be considered a source).
Please take this project very seriously, as this whole process is going to account for 30% of your final mark.
