Preparing your Bill of Materials

When we all come back from Spring Break, the rest of the class will be devoted to working on your final projects. If you need to buy any parts or materials for your project (and you don’t mind UNK owning it), it would be best to have an itemized list before Spring Break, so we can get it all ordered for you. With any luck, you’ll have your parts and materials ready for you when you come back!

Fill in the following form the best you can, and try to be mindful of costs. I cannot give you any guarantee of how much money you can each spend, but if you try to be frugal, there is a better chance you will get more of what you want.

(note: line 2 contains some simple formulas, so if you have more than one item, copy and paste line 2)
