Project for Sinusoids

I teach Pre-Calculus and I am in need of ideas for a project on Sinusoids. I have done plotting temperatures in the past, but I am looking for a new idea. My goals for my students are:
- - understand the connection between the unit circle and sinusoidal functions.
- - connect sinusoids to real-world data.
- - transform sin(x) or cos(x) to model the real-world data.

thanks.
