A couple weeks ago in technology we did a unit about flying cars. I learned that even if you are blind you can still drive. If you sit in your car and tell the car where to drive to it will go. I found this all very fascinating. It really gives blind people an opportunity to drive even though people think that they will never be able to drive. The technology to make it seems very complicated and hard to make, so maybe that’s why there are only a few of self driving cars in the world. The technology, and opportunity it gives blind people is very hopeful and amazing.
A couple weeks ago, we did a breakout EDU which was very fun in my opinion. I really liked the breakout because it made you think and it was a fun activity. It was a very nice introduction to technology, and right away I knew I was going to love it. It was basically an escape room and it really required thinking skills. There was 2 teams and whoever got out first won. My team found clues almost immediately and made a plan. We each would split up in little groups of 4 or 5 and tackle the clues together. I had done a couple of escape rooms and so had a couple other kids so we were all basically pros. As we tackled the clues slowly we were way ahead of the other team. We were on a roll and we couldn’t stop. We finally finished and it was so much fun. I really loved this activity and would really like to do it again in the future.
