Coronus Virus

So far 81 people have died from the coronas virus including an eight month year old baby. The coronas virus is spreading but it started in China. Doctors believe it started in a grocery store from their cow stock. They think the animals first had the disease and now the humans do. The coronas virus has already spread to the United Kingdom. The reason so many people are dying is because the doctors haven´t figured out a treatment for it. A lot of Chinese people who I have seen at the airport were wearing masks over their mouths because they are scared they will be infected. The city it started from is Muhan.

Photo Booth!

A few days ago Mr. Calvert got us a photo booth. It is a box with a white background. There is a ipad on a stand looking into the box. It is very bright in there perfect for pictures. Mr. Calvert told us to take a picture of our flashlights in it with pur plan. There is a switch that activates the photo booth to turn on and to make the light turn on. This is what it looks not on.


Today after many weeks, I have finished my flashlight. It works so well and it has a very bright light. To finish it off, today I drilled two hole. One for the light, and one for the switch. This is my flashlight. As you can see, in blue I circled my switch. If you flick it the light turns on. Inside the flash light, they’re are wires that make the flashlight turn on and off. There is also a battery in there. Circled in red is my light. It is on the end of my flashlight and I think it’s in the perfect spot. I plan to give this to my dad. I’m so happy I’m finally FINISHED!!!

When we came back from break, we started to built our flashlights! First we had to blue print our designs. We got this sheet tat had boxes on it all across the page. We had to measure the pieces and graph them on the paper. Then we had to make sure the measurements were correct. Then we made our final blueprint. We added all the parts and connected them. Then we added wires and circuits to the final plan. Then we are ready to start building!!!!!
