In technology we started a new unit called soldering. Soldering is melting medals and connecting them to other pieces of medal. We had to start brain storming of what to solder but it can be five wires or less and it has to fit in a circle.
Here are some of my brainstorms:
After watching some videos about hydro dipping it helped me hydro dip better. When I did another phone case I was able to make a cool design and I was able to dip the case in the water in a short amount of time after spraying the paint. Overall I think that I did better on the second dip because I did research and got better at hydro dipping.
Here is my first try:
Here is my second try:
Which one do you like better?
I tried to hydro dip for the first time and I think it went pretty good. It was hard because I didn’t know to dip it but the paint still stuck to it. Some things that I need to work on is the amount of time I spend on picking the item up before I dip it and also where I should spray the paint. Overall I think it went well and to get better at it I should practice more and watch videos about it.
Here is a picture of my new phone case:
For the past few days we’ve been learning about atoms. Atoms are in every living thing. Atoms are made up of three things electrons, neutrons and protons. To be able to see the atoms in a grapefruit it would have to be the size of the earth. That’s so big! So far that’s what has been going on in technology.
For my passion project I am doing hydro dipping. Here are some answers to questions about my topic.
- What will you learn and make? I will learn how to hydro dip correctly and I will hydro phone cases with the information I learn on how to hydro dip.
- Why do you want to learn and make this? I want to do hydro dipping because I‘ve seen people do it before but I haven’t done it so I want to learn how to do something new.
- How will you learn and make this? I will watch videos about hydro dipping and learn how to do it correctly.
- What will success look like to you? It will looked like a perfectly dipped phone case without a mistake.
In technology my new quarterly for school we did something called breakout edu. Breakout edu is sort of like an escape the room. There were clues around the room we had to find to help open the locks on a box. The box was filled with the safety googles that were “stolen” from the cabinet. So if we didn’t open the box we “wouldn’t be able to use the tools” because we need the googles for eye protection.
For my passion project I want to do hydro dipping. Hydro dipping is when you fill a bucket with water and spray it with different colors of spray paint, and then dip an item in the bucket and then the spray paint sticks to the item and creates a cool design. I want to do this because I have always been interested in the science behind it. Also I think that its cool to make something look better without having to buy a new product.
I did a ted talk for my presentation. I’m in a really good spot I finished my script and I’m almost done memorizing it, and I also finished my slideshow. I’ve practiced my script so many times that I think it will go smoothly when I get filmed. Every time I present I get better with my script and when I presented the first time I actually knew my script really well. When I presented to my class my classmates gave me good feedback so my presentation got better and better.
Here is my slideshow:
My main inquiry question is how do Apple products change peoples priorities? Apple products have changed peoples priorities in both good and bad ways. Apple products have changed peoples priorities in good ways because new technology allows them to do things more efficiently. An iphone can last up to 5 years as long it is up to date on iOS. Apple products have changed peoples priorities in bad ways because the iphone xr has the longest lasting battery, people can use social media and text a lot more. This results in iphone addiction. Addiction can lead to people buying expensive Apple products when they really don’t need them.
In our science groups today we mixed four different things, they were vinegar, water, oil and colored sugar. The main idea for all of the experiments were mixtures and solutions.
The first experiment that my group did was oil and colored sugar. My hypothesis for that was: if we mix the colored sugar with oil then the oil will turn a little red and some of the sugar will dissolve. My hypothesis was wrong the oil turned a little red but the sugar didn’t dissolve it just stuck together. In this experiment the oil was the solvent and the colored sugar was the solute.
The second experiment that my group did was vinegar and colored sugar. My hypothesis for that was: if we mix the vinegar and the colored sugar then the colored sugar will dissolve and the vinegar will turn red. My hypothesis was correct the vinegar turned red and the sugar dissolved. In this experiment the vinegar was the solvent and the colored sugar was the solute.
The last experiment that my group did was water and colored sugar. My hypothesis for that was the sugar would dissolve and water would turn red. My hypothesis was mostly correct the water turned red but only some of the sugar dissolved. In this experiment the water was the solvent and the colored sugar was the solute.
