Open House Smore
Super Fun Projects
Our driving question was how can we, as structural engineers, construct a two story house in California for Tony Stark that will withstand seismic activity? The design of the house looked like three buildings put together. Though, there a special design. The building on the right was attached to the ground, but had two metal rods that raised the building off the ground when needed.
Atmosphere 30 Hands Project
This was a fun project. It included information about the layers of the atmosphere, global warming and the Greenhouse Effect. We got to record our videos on an app caled 30 Hands. 30 Hands allowed me to record me voice and circle main points.
The invention convention was super fun. We got to create inventions and innovations to solve enviormental projects. My project was called the Aqua-Charge, it solved the problem of global warming. How it solves this problem is that it is powered by water, so it doesn't release many chemicals.
This is a sketch I drew of the mobile device charger.
This is a picture we took just minutes before being done.
In the Making
This is a photo of our project almost complete.
My favorite unit was the atmosphere unit. I liked this unit because I enjoyed learning about the different layers of the atmosphere. Also, I learned more about the topics of climate change and global warming. My favorite assignment from this unit was the Layers of the Atmosphere activity. I liked this assignment because I enjoyed learning where different things are located in the atmosphere. Also, it was fun to draw the items in the atmosphere. Another activity I enjoyed were the cornell notes. I liked taking the notes and drawing illustrations to help me visualize the concepts.
These were the direction fot the Layers of the Atmosphere activity.
This is a pic of the layers of the atmosphere activity.
