Expert lecture #8: The expert was Riley’s dad who works at Experian. He showed us the Experian ads, which were cool. He also pointed out some things we had not noticed before. In Yankee Stadium, there are a few Experian ads I never noticed before. He also asked questions, and kids who answered them correctly got rewards. I got a pen that can write in four colors.
Expert Lecture #9: This time Jasper’s mom was the expert. Jasper’s mom studies bones, and showed us a presentation. She explained the different types of bones I did not know about. Jasper’s mom explained the different types of surgery to help fix bones. Bones can also be fractured, so a cast hold it in place. She gave us bone pens at the end.
Design challenge: Somebody named Rob came over to our classroom. Our challenge was to design useful things in the classroom. Anything could be built, even chairs that float around the room. I designed a portable chair that could be easily taken apart. It was really fun, we had lots of supplies. I can say some creations were cool after all.
