Week 1 -- 2.24.17
I made this website to track my progress with the Genius Hour Project. My topic is cancer research, mostly focusing on how normal people like us can help and what simple, everyday things we can change to prevent cancer. In the next few weeks, I want to learn much more about cancer, and by the end of the school year, I hope to have shared this information with my friends and peers. Today, I hope to finish creating this blog, and next week, I will begin to research on ways to help with cancer research.
Week 2 -- 3.3.17
This week, I began researching how people can donate to help with cancer research. I looked on websites such as the Children's Cancer Research page and the American Institute for Cancer Research page. Today, I hope to visit at least three websites for information, and next week, I hope to research more and find a good way to present this information. Next week, I will continue to research on how to how to donate.
Week 3 -- 3.10.17
This week I researched more on how to donate for cancer research, and I'm trying to find a good website maker to present my information. I have not found one yet, but I will try to next week. The research has been going well. I found out that you can also donate cars to cancer organizations. Next week, my goal is to find a website maker and research on what marathons do to help cancer research.
Week 4 -- 3.17.17
Today, I looked at some different websites to make a website. I tried to work on websitebuilder.com, but it would not save. It said I had to make an account to make a website, but I didn't want to make an account because it costs money. Since that website didn't work, next week, I will try using wix.com, a website that many people have suggested, and I will start researching again.
Week 5 -- 3.24.17
Today, I worked on the Genius Hour progress check, and I also tried to find website making websites. I didn't get much done since I spent most of my time on the progress check. Next week, I hope to really start to format a website to present the information I have found, and I would like to research more.
