Tech Post 3 : Atoms

Hi guys,

In technology right now we are learning about atoms. Atoms are what make up our world and they are pretty complicated. An atom is made up of Neutrons, Protons, and Electrons. In the center of atom, there is a nucleus. The nucleus is made up of Protons and Neutrons. Neutrons have a neutral charge and the Protons have a positive charge. The neutrons keep the Protons away from each other because they can’t touch. Surrounding the nucleus are Electrons that orbit around the nucleus. The Electrons have a negative charge. Depending on how many Protons and electrons there are you can tell if the atom is positively charged or negatively charged. That’s all for now. I’ll be posting again soon, bye!

Breakout EDU

Hey guys,

Today in Tech class we did a breakout EDU. This is a game where you have to find clues to open locks that are scattered around the room. You have a certain amount of time and you have two hints if you need them. Our class was split up into two teams which each had our own clues. We had three locks, a direction lock, a word lock, and a number lock. There was also an addition bonus lock, but only one for the two teams and this was also a number lock. My team finished in about twenty minutes and it was really fun. I hop that I get to do one again soon.

Starting Technology And Safety: Tech Post #1

Hey guys,

I just started the Technology quarterly, and we learned about safety when using all the different tools. Some of the different tools include drill presses and soldering irons. There are twelve rules that you should always follow when  working with these tools.                                                                                                                                                                            1. Slow down, think before you act                                                                                                                                                          2. Dress responsibly. Tie back long hair. No baggy clothing and dangling jewelry                                                                      3. Don’t assume you know training before tools.                                                                                                                                  4. Power tools need concentration. NO talking when using machinery.                                                                                        5. Protect your eyes. Always safety glasses wear.                                                                                                                                6. Before using a machine get instruction, get permission, inspect machine.                                                                                7. Use all guards when using machines. Shut off and before making adjustments, unplug.                                                      8. Power tools are dangerous. Never leave a tool running unattended.                                                                                          9. Soldering irons are hot. Be cautious. Soldering irons heat to over 842 degrees fahrenheit.                                                  10. Xacto knives, saws, and awis, oh my. Be careful when handling sharp things.                                                                      11. Walk all the time. Never nudge or push someone.                                                                                                                        12. Report all accidents. Burns, cuts, scratches, and splinters, no matter how small.

Those are the twelve safety rules for technology, and if you can follow those you should be good to go. That’s all I have to tell you, Bye.
