We started off the year with doing Impossible puzzles by connecting shapes to fit inside a shape perfectly.
After doing that we went on to practicing measuring by using a ruler to make a drawing but needed to use exact measurements and go on the correct dots.
Next, We learned how to use Sketchup a program for designing things for many reasons and how we did that was first learning how to color in a kitchen in the program.
We then learned about wind turbines, what we did was make a wind turbine and see how much electricity it made from the wind spinning it around and around.
What we then did was learn a lot about engineering, when we did that we took notes about engineers and I learned a lot about the history of engineering.
We then watched a really great video about what the 5 hour energy CEO is doing and how well it is for the world and how it makes the world a better place. Including the change of salt water to fresh water fast so we could stop droughts or a water crisis without polluting or leaving a big carbon footprint.
The most recent project we did is making towers using wood, we would glue pieces of wood together and end up making a small tower from the wood, then we will see how much weight the tower will hold but that is yet to be done.
