Portfolio #2

    On my last blog I talked about some of the safety rules, and some other things, and now I’ll be talking about soldering.

    Soldering is like melting meddle. It is SUPER hot, and if you touch it, it will burn! Which is why you must be super careful with it, going back to the topic of safety that I discussed last time.

    What we have been doing is designing a sketch and we will be using wire and creating a small design with it. But that’s not all! There are some rules to think about that will make the design process a little harder then it already seems… Number one is, we are only allowed to use five (max) pieces of wire. And we have to make this inside of a small circle! For me this is going to be a challenge because I have a lot of designs that would be so cool but there would have to be more then five wires. Also I had some ideas that would’ve been sick! But they have to stay inside the circle which is making it a lot harder then it needs to be. 

    Everyone made sketches and everyone has picked one of their sketches/designs to make for this soldering project. But on the other hand, there’s me who has no idea of what to do! The thing is I have made lots of designs but I have some good ones that I’m deciding on.

    Oh, and trust me there’s more to it then just that! We will also be making them into things! For example, a necklace, bracelet, key chain, earrings, and many more! I think I have decided that I am going to make mine into a bracelet. Also we will not just be making them for our selves! We will be making them for the world! What I mean by this is, we will be selling all of the things students soldered, and we will be raising the money for charity. We will be voting on charities but we haven’t really been discussing that to much.

    I hope you enjoyed my blog post, and come check out some that I’ll be uploading soon!
