Kylie's Open House!

Kylie Hicks, period 3

Paragraph one- Earthquake PBL Project

This project was to make a model of a house for Tony Stark that could withstand an earthquake.

Some things that were in my design were:

-popsicle sticks for walls

-straws for the roof

-String to tie roof together

-Windmill made of toothpicks

From thsi project, I learned that to builld a house that will withstand an earthquake, you need to keep a lot of things in mind like braces for support or bolting things to the walls of houses.

Paragraph two- 30 hands project

Here are some things that I learned from doing the project:

  • What gases contribute to the greenhouse effect
  • Volcanic eruptions and other natural things contribute to the greenhouse effect, not just things like gas from cars.

What I liked about the project was that you could be creative and add cool pictures and fonts to your project.

For the invention convention, im working with Viviana and Sofia to make the wind power plant. It works too reduce the use of fossil fuels.

Our innovation is a way for people to get energy without using too many foslil fuels.
