Default In need of someone for school-related "interview" (really just a verbal conversation)

Hello, everyone

Just for a little explanation, I'm a Senior in high school and I'm taking a Senior Project course where the student makes their own project and their own goals and follows through with it. I decided to make my project Creating a RC vehicle. Unfortunately, not all parts of the assignment are up to the student, as there are requirements of a research paper, activity logs, and finally, an interview. It required that the interview is recorded (audio-only) or else the interview does not fill the project requirement. The sole purpose of the recording of the interview is so that the student can type down a "script" of what was said in the interview. I can personally vouch that the recording will be used for any other purpose except for this single project, and in the case that anything may come up, I will let the person who volunteers know asap.

The truth is that, even though this is supposed to be a "formal interview," I believe that, through Skype, there really is nothing "formal" about it. The formal is more referring to the clothing one would wear if the interview was done in person. In short, it's more like a conversation where I ask about 18 questions relevant to RC vehicle building, and you just talk to me about it. (As for the significance of 18 questions, that's yet another requirement forced onto us... We must have at least 18 questions ready for the interview...)

I have never done RC vehicle creation before, so the questions I will be asking are most likely very basic.

Anyways, I'm a little cramped on time, so I'm hoping someone who has a little time open in the nearby future and who is willing to just talk on Skype.

I thank you for your time, and wish you all a pleasant day.

-Mike

Yes. As the collector stated, it was a legitimate request.
