6th Grade Tech – Post #8

For the first few days of this week, we practiced making blueprints by using a measurement table, t-squares, rulers, and right triangles. It was really fun.

On Friday, we started to make the blueprint for our flashlight design. I’m almost done with mine. After that, I can start to build! I think the hard part about this project is making the blueprint, but when you start to build, it gets easier because you have the steps right in front of you.

I’m going to use one pipe and three fittings. Once I’m done making the flashlight, I am going to decorate it. I think that decorating it makes it more unique. Although, I don’t know what I’m going to decorate it with yet.

I forgot to take pictures, so I’ll make sure to add some in next week. I really need to remember to take pictures each week!

Here is my blueprint of my flashlight:
