This is my final Technology blog post of the year. Today is the last day of school! I learned a lot in tech in class this year, even though we my class wasn’t in school due to Covid. There are actually some topics that I want to learn more about this summer. Goodbye for now E-Learning, Until Next Time!

This week I learned about metals. I learned what factors it takes for different ones to form, and what makes a metal good for different uses. I honestly found it very interesting, and over the summer want to learn some more about the subject.

This week I learned how to use a sight called maker studio. It helps you make 3-d creations out of regular paper. This week as I am just getting used to it, I decided to make a simple cube.
This app was very fun to use and I can’t wait to make more complicated projects with it.

This week we learned about trusses. The project I did this week was to see what is stronger a surface with trusses versus a surface without. I used toothpicks and grapes, and made two cubes. One of my cubes had trusses and the other one did not. Next I put books on top to compare them. The box without tresses just collapsed after I put one book down. On the other hand, the box with trusses stood up after I put one book down. This proves that trusses make things less brittle and stronger.

This week I learned about I beams. For my weekly project I had to compare a cardboard I beam, to a bunch of cardboard strips taped together. Both of the beams were made out of the same material, and the same amount of that material.
This been is very ductile compared to the other one, because it is not bending with even more blocks on it.
Overall I learned that the I beam is the better than just a few strips taped together.

Final blog post
For my final computer technology blog post I decided to write about my game design project, I made a maze game. You have to dodge the green blocks and make it to the finish line. My sister played so many times until she won. It is a very fun game, and I think you should try it for yourself! Here is the game link, I hope you enjoy, and please feel free to give me suggestion’s! https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/379858357
