Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I've been super busy! Last week was my science fair, and since I'd promised I'd post about that, I will now.
Since November, all the grade seven students have been working on creating a cool invention that will make life easier. It has to have at least two simple machines in it (ours had an inclined plane and a lever) and it wasn't allowed electricity. I was paired up with two good friends of mine, T.K. (this actually stands for something) and I.S. (initials I made up).
We ended up creating a box for your locker that can fit in and organise it. It's ideal for high school students who have trouble with disorganisation. It's painted blue with silver tape around the edges, and in my opinion, it looks super professional.
The day of the science fair, all the teams set up in the auditorium with a poster, their invention, and a pamphlet explaining how it works. My team looked super professional because we all dressed up in working outfits. It was super cool seeing all the amazing inventions, and some of them were quite good.
Others... weren't. They hadn't really thought it through. 'Nuff said there.
Everybody who came to visit our invention (students from older grades, teachers and parents) really loved our invention. They all had little papers to vote on inventions which were most reasonably priced, eye catching, kid friendly, eco friendly, or innovative. We got quite a few voted though we don't know who won them yet. In the end, we got a 99% overall, which I'm certainly pretty proud of.
I was originally going to talk about something else in this post, but I've decided to save that for tomorrow!
