I was just soldering this part was the hardest for me This part was hard because at first it did not work so I had to de-solder the wires. Then the led light broke so I had to do it all over. When it finally worked I was so happy. Then I had to cut the pipes this part was very fun. Then I had to drill my holes. These parts were easy and lots of fun. Now I started styling.

We have made our final diagram for the flashlight. This part was very hard because we had to use T square and triangles. The is had to shown to scale witch made it hard. First you have Tom mount it to your drawing board so it stays still and then make your scale. Then I foun d out how long the pipes and wires are.

In class we have learned to make bread boards. Bread boards are really easy when you understand it. A bread board is used to put light on one secret. We had to make a bread board with 3 light and one battery. Then when we played the game we hooked our switches to the bread board. The game was lots of fun but very hard.

So now I am making my switches for my car. My first switch I had to cut out to pieces of cardboard and glue them together. The way all of the switches work is 2 pieces of tinfoil has to touch. My second switch is a straw with tinfoil. You have to push the straw though a hole to touch the other tinfoil. My last switch is a popsicle stick that spins and at a certain point it touches other tinfoil. The tools I used were a jigsaw, hot glue gun, masking tape and tinfoil. The hardest to make was the last one.

Now we are done making  and cutting out the wires for our pendent. We all got a piece of double sided tape to put on our piece of paper. with the double sided tape we will put our wires down. Then when I sorted I put way to much. So I had too take some off. Then when I took it of of the tape it was not connected so I had to re-do it. The whole process of soldering was really fun.
