A few weeks ago, we had a S.T.E.A.M. project. S.T.E.A.M. stands for science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics. This project was to be done at home with any of our household members to be our partner. What we needed for our project was to make a Newton’s cradle. We first cut out an empty shoe box into frame shapes on the longer sides for us to tie the strings to. After that, we got 5 large beads and strung them on the thread, tying them to the framework that we created on the box. For the art portion of our S.T.E.A.M. project, we decorated the box with small scrap-book decorations that my mom supplied us with. We took pictures of it and printed them out to submit to our science teacher along with our S.T.E.A.M. answer sheet. Our Newton’s cradle worked perfectly, and because of that I’m happy about it since this is the first time I made something like this.
A few weeks ago, we had a Robotics activity for our computer class. Our teacher gave us a kit of Lego robot parts that we were suppose to build with. While building the robot, my group was lagging in the progress, since they didn’t know which pieces go where. Luckily for them I did, and with a bit of my help we were able to catch up with the rest of the groups. I helped fix up a few parts of the robot that were out of place, and once everyone had their machines ready we started our robot battle. You see, the robot battle was merely just our robot gently colliding against each other and trying to topple over the opponent’s robot. It was far from the kind of robot battles that Big Hero 6 showed. During the battle, my team lost 3 times and won only once out of all 4 of the rounds. It kinda sucked, but hey, we won one.
I see blogging as a way of sharing your opinions, beliefs, and interest with people that aren’t just limited to school, neighborhood, and home. It lets you connect with others worldwide and lets you learn about the current events. Blogging helps open our eyes to a bigger and more colorful world filled with people from different races, languages and cultures and shows you just how diverse our world can be.
Blogging isn’t very new to me, since I already have a blog in Tumblr for quite a while now. Although I’m not a novice to blogging, I’m not exactly a pro either. I look forward to learning more about blogging through Edublogs as well as Tumblr, and hopefully I learn a lot.
