Pre-Calculus Projects

I met with the other Pre-Calculus teachers yesterday for a planning meeting. A decision was made to assign a Pre-Calculus project to the students as an end of the year project. We also felt that the students really don't know the unit circle and would like to incorporate the unit circle in the project. I could use some help with ideas for this project. Can anyone suggest some?
