Space Shuttles

January18

In science, my class has been learning about space. We had to make a 3-D model of a space shuttle using this website called Tinkercad. It is a 3-D designing software that helps you design anything you would like in a fun way. We had to use Tinkercad to design a space shuttle that we named and designed ourselves and our school will vote for their favourite design. This is the space shuttle I designed and the name of it is “Universe”:

When I started designing my space shuttle on Tinkercad, I accidentally started designing a rocket ship instead of what I was supposed to be designing so that made me extremely aggravated. I then deleted EVERYTHING and then started from scratch. 

I have never used Tinkercad before and I think that now I know how to use this website that I will be able to accomplish other assignments in different classes with much more interest. 

I think for next time the only thing I could make more interesting was the creativity of my name choice, and the detailing I put into my actual design. 

Thank you for reading my post and have you ever designed a space shuttle before?

My Radical Rocket

November26

In school my class was working on the unit of flight. We learned about lift, gravity/weight, drag and thrust. For a fun activity we had to make a rocket. I named mine “Lightening Fast”.

I love how my rocket turned out. After everyone in my class made their rocket we had a rocket launch to see who’s went the farthest and so we could see how that person made their rocket (design, additions, weight, e.t.c).

In this assignment I learned about the four forces of flight, the four properties of air and about Bernoulli’s principal (the faster a gas moves the less pressure it contains)

To explain my rocket I made a video:

As I said in the video, the front of my rocket wasn’t as good as i would have hoped for but there is always a second chance. I feel like my rocket is very aerodynamic because I made all of those alterations. It wouldn’t have been as good if i didn’t make those changes.

Hopefully you liked this blog post

Have you ever made a rocket before? And if yes, how did you launch it?

Innovation Day Reflection

April2

Blah blah blah pupils blah blah blah eyes blah blah the eye doctor blah blah blah blah blah depth perception blah blah blah blah blah… I hear this and think to myself why am I letting my parents get away with talking about stuff I don’t know about. When I was a baby if they wanted to say something without me understanding what they are saying so they started off with saying each letter, but then I learned how to read and how things are spelled and 8 years later they still don’t want me to know so the do it this way. What is this? I need to figure out what all of this means. So I did a project on it. On March 5, it was Innovation Day. Myself and my partner ( this is her blog) did our project on “A Bionic Eye”. What is Innovation day you ask? Well innovation day is a day of creativity. My school has a contest (sort of) were grade 6,7, and 8 make a science related project, experiment or problem in the world and they compete to win. This is my schools version of a science fair. Our project went really well. We found lots of information. we even did a survey and the results were incredible. We did lots of research on “depth perception”, “angles”, and “the pupil”. We made a model of the human eye. On Innovation day we presented our project to our parents and our classmates parents. I am satisfied with the work I put on the board, but I feel I could have done better by putting I bit more information about how someone could use this bionic eye. I look forward to making an online replica of this bionic eye. I might even keep researching this project so my parents won’t have an advantage.

 

Thank you for reading my blog and please check out my partners blog. I would love to hear your versions of a science fair and if you think Innovation is cool.
