Today was the final in class session of genius hour number 2, today I worked on getting more notes. Since my partner has been really sick, I have to postpone our presenting time. To me I think that is great, because my partner was sick for the other genius hour project too, and this will give her time to recover and then we can start working on it again. Plus she will be able to at least be in 1 genius hour project. I learnt that when you ice a cake with decorating bags, left handed people decorate right to left, where as right handed people need to decorate from left to right. I thought this was very interesting, I thought everyone decorates the same way. But it actually depends on what hand you write with. The steps I still need to take to finish my project are, Baking the cake, decorating the cake and making the presentation. All of this I will do with my partner. Today I struggled to get a lot done because I am a bit worried about my partner, I know she will recover because it is just a virus.
Today I started to finish off my note taking. Everything went really well. I did have one problem because, my Google drive was not cooperating. I eventually ended up restarting my computer, that seemed to work really well. At home I will need to meet with Tinkerbell, and start decorating the cake, and making the cake. We will also need to get the ingredients, and work on our final end product/presentation. Next session in class we plan to finish off our I movie (which we will start at home).
Today Tinkerbell and I worked on our genius hour project. Our question is, how do we decorate a cake to make it look professional? It was a very tough day today because we could not find a proper/good website to use, our goal was to find different techniques to decorate. We eventually found a website with REALLY good information. Next class I think we will continue to research and we will start to test out the techniques.
Today I finished up my project, by finishing the animations and doing finishing touches. It was really cool because I learnt a lot about the animations. I am very very proud of my project. There were no problems today because I was just doing finishing touches and that went really well. I did not have really anymore questions because as I said before I was just finishing up. Tonight I need to print out a couple of photos so my peers will understand my project a bit more I will do this at home. I will try and link it up ASAP but it might take a while. I am super excited to present my project on Wednesday.
Today I worked on my project it was really cool. I made these really cool animations on every page it took a lot of time and effort but it was worth it. I feel I have improved a lot on this project. I am really proud of it, I didn't even think it wold look very good but I was wrong. I think everything went well today. I was focused a lot but at some points I looked at my neighbor because he has made an amazing stop motion video I will link his website up so you can learn more about it.
There was not a lot of problems other than small things like trying to find a very good image and not finding one but I over came those by searching with different words. A lot of my research leads me to more questions like: How does the clutch work? and How is the gas pedal connected to the engine? plus a lot more. On Monday I will finish up my project this will also occur at my house too so I can make my project the best of my ability.

Today during genius hour I made my script for my project. As you can see to the left. This means I took all my notes and put them into pretty much a conversation or speech. Everything went pretty well except for when I ran out of ideas and sat in my chair for a while just staring off into space. Next time I will try to be more focused. On Friday I will start recording/working (on) my project. Which means I will record my voice and add pictures to go with my voice.
Today I researched and took notes. I found a really cool diagram it was very big so I had to take two photos of it. They are down below. It was very easy today because I was just researching and taking notes. However I did run into a problem, I ran out of websites. I had to spend 20 minutes finding websites, but I still got a lot done. wWhen I was working I had a lot more questions, when I wrote something down I would begin to wonder why does this do this and how does this do this. My next steps will be starting to put together my project I will probably need some more notes too so I will take more notes at home and on Wednesday I will start to work on my project.
Today I started my genius hour project. I only filled out the planning sheet but that does mean I started. My question is How do cars work/function ? I was sitting in my car one day looking at another car and I thought How do cars move and I suddenly got very interested in that question and that was the start of my genius hour project. It was pretty easy to fill out the sheet because I took some time the night before we did genius hour to think of answers to some questions. Everything went very well But I did get stuck on what type of project I will be doing. Monday I will research how cars move and their history.
