Last week we made paper airplanes. I made four airplanes. My first plane had delta wings with 2 paper clips on the back because I wanted more drag. This airplane kept on nose diving. I am not really sure why because I made sure the back was heavy. My second plane had wider delta wings. This plane went far but kept on turning. My third plane had delta wings but the nose was a lot bigger. This plane kept on spinning in the air. My last plane was my best the front and back weight were equal. This plane kept on flying but at the end it would flip over. Overall I think I know what I will have to do to do my wood plane.
I made the pong game. It was not easy but the hardest part was making the score reset and make the ball bounce. It was very fun. The scoring works when you hit the paddle with the Ball. But if you miss the it resets. I think the scratch unit its really fun. My favorite project was the game design because it is a game. I give a shout out to Matt. I really liked your maze. It thought the levels was really cool.
I used a chart and a function that auto filled]. The chart helped to compare them. The function helped with the math.
I really like this one because I had To find out how to make a right turn with only lefts. I found out that 3 lefts make a right. There was one bug where I went to far to pick up the gem. Overall it was not that hard.
The steps where move forward 3 times. Turn left. Move forward 2 times toggle switch. Move forward 2 times. Turn left. Move forward 2 more times and collect gem. There was one bug. I did not move forward enough steps to it toggle the switch where the switch was not.
I watched Daniels and really liked it because I thought they way the drums and the speaker cam on tho the screen were cool. I really liked the setting. I thought that your dancer was so cool.
I thought the video was very interesting because it showed me that not so much holes into coding and any one can do this. I learned that some of the most successful people started with code. It does not take a lot to code. Coding is the new way of life and we should learn it. Everything is coded. Coding is the new superpower. We al should learn to code.
My scratch project tell you that I have a younger brother, I love food and baseball. It also tell you that I play the trumpet. I have used scratch once before so it was new for me. It was hard a the start but I figured out how. What help was knowing how to add my own sprit. This project was fun and I think I will get better along the way. I used a baseball, trumpet, and donut.

This weekend I made thermal energy by walking 5 miles. I also made mechanical energy from walking.
What is energy? I think that energy is work. So when you store it for later it is potential and when you use it, it is kinetic.
