Our class went to the SciTech Museum in Aurora, Illinois, and we had fun pretending to be reporters broadcasting live from the museum. We had lots of fun, and everybody took lots of videos. My partner, Kelsey and I made no less than anyone else, but I figured it would be easier we just put one video by each of us on
In Mr. Solarz' class, we have a science fair, and my project was, surprisingly, about paper airplanes. This is surprising because I usually prefer to read paper instead of making it into a paper airplane, but that was my project. I used paper airplanes because I thought it would pretty easy to measure which material made the best paper airplane (best being goes the furthest), but I was wrong. When I set up my experiment in our classroom, people kept pulling out chairs, which messed up the line of yardsticks I had to measure the distance my planes flew. Therefore, I set up at home in my basement instead, which worked better. I think this science fair was a really good learning opportunity, because we had to present all this stuff to a lot of people at our science fair, so that helped our presentation skills as well as the skills (mainly patience!) we had to have in order to do our projects. Thank you, Mr, S!
