In my class, we are doing Capstone!
My topic is balking and The reason I choose it because I always had a passion. I always find fun and amazing to express yourself and you can be creative. I’ve been baking for a long time, I can bake cakes, cookies, cupcakes, and much more. I really love baking
Well as you know I have to do this project virtually and for me, it has been very hard to understand if I can do this or if I did this right but now I think I kinda got used to it. One thing that was pretty stressful for me was the sub-questions because it was hard to think of questions that you had to research for not just a fact. For instance, when I had three out of five sub-questions I had no idea what I was going to do and I was really frustrated and not happy.
Well, now I know that everything’s gonna be okay and I’m excited to see how capstone goes because this is just a beginning.
In my class, Weare doing a project called Rube Goldberg. Rube Goldberg is when you use simple machines and another object that is supposed to get a ball into a cup or something like that. There are six simple machines, A Pulley, Lever, Wheel and Axle, Wedge, Incline plain and, Screw.
I and my group are almost done with our sketch but the hard thing is about working in a group is that if you don’t have one team member there it’s hard to get everything done. I and my group are a little behind but as soon as the building starts I think we can catch up.
I think that this project is gonna be fun but at the same time, it will be a frustrating cause of how many times it will take to get it right. This project is to help with teamwork and knowing that not everything will happen on the first try.
Rocket blog post
We are building rockets, then we are going to launch them on this special launcher. My favorite part about the designing process was making the inspiration board because we got to add glitter and got to do a lot of fun research like Newton’s three laws, diagrams and pictures of rockets. My team is called the astro rockets, I actullay like that name.
My favorite part about building the rocket is making the fins because it was fun to choose the number of fins and the sizes, I also like to hot glue them on our rocket, I love hot glue!
We built our rocket in a thick way and we used contruction paper we also used contruction tape so it could be very secured. For our Nose Cone we had to use this special technique and then cover it with tape then hot glue it to the rocket. Then we add our fins with hot glue and also add so tape so it could be extra stable.
