We went to Altoona, Iowa and had a Technology Student Association. I competed in Radio Control Cars, Rc car racing, and I also competed in Digital Photography.
In Rc car you race a fast remote control car against other people to try and win. In Digital Photography we take pictures and use a computer to change effects.
For the March Genius Hour I made boots out of fabric by sewing with a sewing machine. The boots are red at the top and rainbow colors for the foot part. I learned that sewing with a sewing machine isn’t very hard and you can make lots of things.
I am now working with Hot Wheels car. I am going to build one out of other parts and take one apart. Then I am going to model how to make and put it together all of the different pieces of the car.
On Tuesday, April 2nd we went and saw a man named Philip Gans. Philip survived the Holocaust and he was in Auschwitz 3.
The Holocaust was so terrible about 11,000,000 people total died. Philip was 15 years old when the Holocaust started and he is now 85 years old.
You will probably never see a Holocaust survivor in your life, but if you have, please share their name with me.

As rush hour continues,
the streets get busier .
More people come and others get exhausted.
Some ride bikes, trikes, and cars,
and some are just sitting there.
Some are mad, happy, and sad
but like a light,
all of the colors are there but you only see one.
It may be a black shadow with a city of wheels,
but like the car it stands out and you should too!

For genius hour I worked on my wooden football more. I finished it. I painted it and put gloss on it.
Even though I tried really hard I couldn’t make it any rounder. If you work with wood you should use wood that’s not really hard or thick.
We Skyped with people from British Columbia. This is part of our class. We answered and shared only yes and no questions.
This class from Canada Skyped way different than others did because if one class asked us a question and we said yes they would go again and if we said no then it was our turn to ask a question.
We wanted to guess what their place was and they wanted to guess ours so when it became lunch time a couple people from our class went and got their food then when they were back the next few left.
We asked them questions like: Are there more or less than 100 thousand people in your town? Then we looked on the computer and there were like only 3 towns with that many people in British Columbia.
Most of British Columbia is mountains. Some people live in valleys, mountains, and some live on the coastline.
If you choose to do mystery Skype you should ask yes or no questions only, and if they say yes you keep guessing, but if they say no it’s the other class’s turn.

This story is about some stuff I like and don’t like but still accept.
Today during school we played bingo with elderly people. We had prizes for the winners and we played for about an hour. We also had donuts and coffee for them. We had this bingo day because we needed to appreciate and thank the elderly people. We came up with this idea when we found out we needed to do something for the elderly for our First Lego League (FLL).
We had lots of fun playing with the elderly people. I thing they really enjoyed it.
