    Hello,

    Two classmates and I are working together in a Engineering Development and Design class under the Project Lead The Way curriculum. We have designed a chicken brooder that requires very little human interaction when adjusting the height between the lamp and the chickens for ideal temperature than previous models. We would greatly appreciate you taking your time to take a brief survey we have created.

    Thank you again, Team Brooder surveymonkey.com/s/J3VLVWD

    As engineering design, if you're ME, a robust moving design that is resistant to chick dust and chick debris would be interesting. If you guys are EE, better than a mechanical design, a sensor circuit that dims the lighting according to a temperature reading at some point in the incubator would be interesting. For 2 bucks, many people just hang a light and put it on a dimmer switch.
