MAKE SHARE FAIRE REFLECTION:
What Went Well?: I did get to bake (cookies and cream bark) and people really enjoyed it. I think having treats really brought people into my station even though nobody cared for the presentation :(
What Difficulties Did You Face?: Halfway through my baking presentation I ran out of treats. I was really worried because I thought nobody would like my project if I just told them about it. I was right. Turns out nobody wants to here about a cooking project without something to eat.
How Did You Solve This Problem?: I couldn't bake anymore treats because I didn't have the materials and they needed to freeze for 3.5 hours. I just ended up telling people about my project and only 2 people really cared about it (you know who you are). Next time, I will prepare a lot of treats!
If You Were In Charge, Would Would You Change?: This was a really cool opportunity and I think that we should do it every year. However, I think that the teachers go over the guidelines with all of their students before Maker Faire. It was kind of confusing because I didn't really know where to go and what to do in prep time. Also, I think kids should be able to walk around on their own instead of sticking with there CC teacher. Finally, I think that we should do Maker Faire in the gym because the kids outside or in the thinkering room didn't get a lot of attention because nobody knew people where in the room or outside.

I/We learned...
a ton of new recipes to do for maker faire. Im trying to decide between my sample of unicorn bark or cookies and cream bark. Im going to take a vote between the class to decided. Im really worried if I'm going to have time to bake for my maker faire but I'm excited for people to try my treats.

  • Prep 4 Maker Faire
  • MAKE MUG CAKES!!!!


What got in the way of your learning?
So, I kind of had trouble starting my project because I could not bake until tonight, so i was kind of bored during class. Also, Maker Faire is in 3 weeks and I'm freaking out because i have no idea how much baking i will get done in between then because i want to do samples. On the bright side having two days helped me plan out my maker faire table.

5 Nail Art Design Video:
~Flowers ~Bandits
~Dots (Cu-tip) ~Minions
~Mickey Mouse (Dotting)

What helped your learning?

This week I used one of resources wisely that helped my learning... YouTube!!! I looked up designs and I decided to do one video with 5 designs (one for each finger). I got the idea from SaraBeautyCorner for the dots and flowers and I found the Mickey Mouse design on google. I came up with the bandit idea (for those savages out there) and I will be doing a throwback to my first nail art design the minions. Next week I will use my volunteer Justin to be my hand model. :)

Describe your progress towards your goals

This week was a good week for me. I started a nail polish tutorial channel called Simple and Safe nails. The nail polish is safe and the designs are simple. For my channel i had to research the ingredients used in the nail polish to find if they were safe or not. The first to nail polish was wet and wild. the second was del sol. Del sol is much safer than wet and wild. I also created my channel. I am very happy because i completed all of my goals. Next week i want to continue my research and start researching videos.

What got in the way of your learning?

We were trying to do an opening video for our channel and people (Ellie Cook) kept running our videos. People were screaming into our videos so it took us longer and we could not get our video edited. Hopefully, when maggie leaves to do her project with sophie i can edit the video

We had "hard fun" when...

My Achievement Was Affected By...

When minecraft was shutdown yesterday. We could not get anything done and my goal of making videos was setback a few days. We also had a LONG lesson today so I didn't get as much work time as I hoped for. We are starting to build a giant office building.

10/12/16
  • Start Minecraft


One example of a FAILure we had was ...

I started to make a video (It was AMAZING!) and I thought I could edit it. Turns out I could not edit because I didn't or JH didn't know how to. I dint ask around like I should have so I just deleted my video. Hopefully Ethan could teach me how to edit next week.
10/5
  • Start Crafts.


I/We have changed my/our plan...

I started doing crafts and I got bored. I didn't want to buy all theses materials and not know the outcome of my project. I really wanted to still do a professional youtube channel but with minecraft. I loved my minecraft project last year so I decided to start it up again. I will be doing servers, redstone and a HUGE castle.
9/22/16

This week I/we took the proper time for the job when ...

FINAL REFLECTION

This year I learned...
A ton of really cool redstone traps, how to make a blog and how to draw a pumpkin. I think next year I am going to make another Youtube channel. I really enjoy Youtube and I hope to continue over the summer. Ethan has taught me amazing redstone traps and Jon Harris taught me a lot of really cool servers. I hope to to do some Vlogs over the summer and this youtube project helped me learn all of the things i need to know. Next year I think I will do another Youtube channel just maybe not on minecraft.

that if i am building something big, i should divide my videos up in to parts. I am building a big hotel and it is going very well so far.

  • Work on my house for minecraft city


I did not get as far as I planed because...
We did not have school on Monday so I had to stop early and do my reflection. I am mad because I wanted to start screen casting as soon as possible but that was effected by not having school Monday. I am HAPPY though because I finished my house so I should start screen casting next week. Today I got good ideas for my screen casting speech because while I worked I listened to Jon Harris do his video and now I have good ideas for my video.
