I colored my flashlight green on the top and red everywhere else. 1 out of 30 people said the flashlight looked like a watermelon. That was my first plan but after I saw somebody somebody else doing a watermelon and I didn’t want to get accused of copying. So I made a strawberry.
I finished my flash. Kirwin helped me more than half of the project so I “Technically” owe him my whole project but he is nice enough to give me my flashlight. I got to use the Drill Press for the first time. That’s not all. I also got to sauter my circuit. I was so much fun. I learned that sauter looks like metal. I used to think the sauter was the hot thingie. I enjoyed the project but I have to admit it was frusturated and overwhelming.
I finished my second and final switch. I wasn’t able to make my third switch. My second switch was this square. On the top of the square there is a cut out square. There is a rubber band at the top hot glued. There is tin foil on the bottom of the rubber band and on the bottom of the cardboard. You pull the rubber band down and wala!!!
I finally started building something. I started building circuits. I finished one of them. It is called a blade switch. There usually is a popsicle stick and you pull it down. You glue tin foil on the popsicle stick and on the cardboard on the bottom. If you connect it to a light and then pull the switch down, the light will turn on.
This week we learned a lot about self driving cars and that they require a lot of very complicated coding. Self driving cars need to make tough decisions and if the car makes a mistake, the price may be very severe. People don’t need self driving cars so I think people should focus something more serious.
This week we learned about different types of games like bond breaker, and Phet. I learned alot about:Protons, Neutrons, and electrons. I had no idea we were going to learn about that. Technology has a lot of suprises and hope to see more fun ones.
This week we were reveiwing machines and we did a really fun game called escape the room(we had to open 3 locks instead of escaping a room). It involved a lot of team work, spy work, and patience!!! First time playing the game. I hope we will be able to play again. In technology the machines are really cool. I am excited to use them. I have heard of the machine before but I have never saw or used it. I couldn’t believe that the sauter machine gets hotter than 900 degrees hotter.
Yesterday after our moving up ceremony, we had to go down to our presenting spaces and we had to present to the audience. My mom told me that a trick was if I am feeling a little nervous, I should just pretend that everyone is naked and then it would not be so scary. Before I presented, I was pretty scared and was sweating a lot but when I was presenting, It wasn’t scary at all and I even enjoyed presenting my slifdeshow. This trick really helped me. I presented my capstone fourth. I hope lots of people liked my presentation. After I was done with my presentation, I was really happy that I presented and I was really proud of myself. In conclusion, I really enjoyed doing this project and I am looking forward to the next one.
At the begining of the capstone process, we had to pick out our topic. I chose cell phone addiction because I am addicted to my cell phone and I wanted to see how to help myself. I also chose cell phone addiction because I thought it would be fun to study cell phone addiction. Then we had to fill out a document called “Capstone Search Terms” and we had to find useful databases and search terms. After that, we had to use our databases and we had to get research from our databases. After we finished all of our research, we thought if we wanted to do a ingnite presentation or a ted talk presentation. I chose ted talk because I didn’t want to be pressured. with the time part. I put most of my research in my script. The rest of my research went to my other blog post, CAPSTONE LEFTOVERS. After I finished my script, I had to memerize all of my script. Then I made little notecards that say the first few words of each box and I was just practicing from their. I practiced to my mom and brother and dad so much. I had so much fun throught my process and hope other people also loved it.

There is a class that costs $705 and all of the kids just sit there and are quietly scrolling, playing, or texting someone. Why would someone waist all that money so they could do something else and they will get no benefit.
