This week and technology we have been learning about simple machines. Over the weekend it was memorial day so we have no project for this week. In my science class our last unit was working on simple machines as well so I don’t know a lot about simple machines already. Isn’t technology we are learning a lot about gears I think this is exciting because in science we did not learn about this so it’s something new. Summer think your work is confusing me but I think I will get the hang of it.
This week we are working on simple machines. Our project for this week is making catapult out of popsicle sticks and rubber bands. I really enjoyed making this because it is super simple and it the marble goes so far. The mechanical advantage for mine was 1.6.
This week we have been working on this new website called Fab maker studio. I’m not very sure if I like it or not because it is confusing for me to work. This weeks assignment was to make something off of their website I decide to go simple and make a sphere. It wasn’t as simple as I thought it was going to be because I had to make it into a round shape this was a little bit hard for me. But in the end I got it are used hot glue to glue all the edges together.
This week we have started a new project. We were asked to build A 3-D cube out of toothpicks and some sort of sticky stuff to attach it or paper and tape I didn’t have to cook so I use paper and tape. This is a cool project to make and it did not take very long but it was a little bit confusing at first to wrap all of the papers of tape.
