 As a junior I took 2.008, also known as Design and Manufacturing 2. The main project in 2.008 is to design and manufacture a yo-yo from start to finish. team decided to make a sleek yo-yo resembling the superhero Captain America's shield. It was made up of three different colored injection mold pieces and one thermoformed part. All of the pieces are held together with snap fits and the string is wound around a standoff which is screwed into each half.  We ran into a lot of problems while making it but learned a lot through solving them.  Here is a link to our final presentation.  Below are some pictures of our design.
