This week we are working on an iMovie for the maker fair about how we did our project and the directions in case anyone else wants to try it

Make Share Fair
The Make Share Fair went extremely well. Everyone liked our samples and said they tasted really good. They agreed with the reason why we did our project too. We ran out of cookie samples really fast. We had to start the video every time someone came over even though the other person had just stared to watch it. We couldn't really solve our problem but we did let many people eat the crumbs off of the plate. If i knew before me and Sophie would have made double, if not triple of our samples.
5-3-17
This week I'm going to be figuring out how to take product pictures and when Sophie is here the next day we are going to microwave cookies.

This week me and my partner are going to look for the best recipe possible and split the ingredients to start baking next week

I used my time wisely today...
This week we looked at a ton of recipes. We finally found the best one then we made sure it was good because we don't want to bake something that wouldn't taste good! We are going to start baking next week.
3-29-17
This week i didn't get too much done because the first day i had to leave early and pack up but the second day there will be some progress but i can't predict the future

I used my time wisely today...
This week I didn't have a lot of time the first day and sophie wasn't here so i didn't get a lot done. The second day sophie was absent so i decided to build the lego drone again. I built the whole thing and would have maybe gotten it flying but i ran into some issues. It wouldn't connect to the controller and I'm going to see what happens next class.
3-22-17
This week I'm going to work on the project proposal and work on my old project a little bit the last day.



3-15-17
This week i decided that I'm going to switch projects because this one was unsuccessful and i don't think it would be good for a makerfair project so i might do a baking project with a friend.
3
2
I used my time wisely today...
This week i kid of got some things done, but not all of it. Me and my partner figured out what we are going to do and we are working on the project proposal now. There are still some things we have to do before we start working.
3-8-17
This week I'm going to upgrade to the octo drone with 8 motors. Then I'm going to test it out.
3

3-1-17
This week I'm going to see if the drone works with the battery more charged but if it docent i will take it apart and make the next one. if it does i will probably record flying it for the project page.

I used my time wisely today...
This week i did the best i could without a phone. Since i used my phone as a controller and i didn't bring it both days i had to switch to a kit with a controller. i did that the second day then spent the class trying to figure out how to connect the controller. I didn't figure it out though, or it wouldn't work, either one.
2-15-17
this week I'm going to launch the drone and finish building it if i need to. If i have time I'm probably going to learn how to fly it.
4
2
i used my time wisely this week...
This week i finished building the FlyBrix drone with 4 motors. I think i did a good job building it too. but when i try to fly it all of the motors work but it docent take off. Im pretty sure the battery isn't charged enough though.
2-8-17
This week I'm going to finish some homework and tomorrow the lego drone is supposed to be here so i will work on that then.
3
2
i used my time wisely this week...
This week i got a lot done. My project came in on the second day. The first day i did homework and i finished it. but on the Second day i got my FlyBirx and i got so much done I'm almost done building it! I took pictures to show my progress in the future.
2-2-17
This week I'm doing homework and studying for tests while I'm waiting for the lego drone to come in/
3
3
I used my time wisely this week...
This week i got a packet done for homework and so far i still don't have homework today. Although i do have a Current event. A current event is a project that you share wth the class. Thats what i have been working on.
1-26-17
I have decided what project I'm going to do. I this week I'm going to write a proposal for a study hall, so i can get homework done and late work in.
3
2
I used my time wisely this week...
This week i got quite a lot done, i didn't start my project yet but i am writing a proposal. I have also finished my portfolio. Although I'm still writing my proposal once i start my project i will hopefully learn a lot.
1-18-17
Im pretty sure this week I'm going to start a simpler project. but I'm still going to sell keep my other project for when i finish this one.
3
3
I used my time wisely this week...
This week i started to do another Scratch Project. I still don't know exactly what I will do but I might still choose another project. But because i don't know for sure what I'm going to do so i will continue this project unless i find something else.
1-11-17
this week I'm going to make it so you can sell the cookies. it might take a while because i have to code a lot and think about it.
4
3
I used my time wisely this week...
This week i actually got a good amount done for the amount of problems i had. I am starting to think this Scratch project is a little more advanced. So i have been thinking about starting another Scratch project. If i do end up doing that, I will put this project on hold.
1-4-17
This week I'm going to work on the game and the project. I'm going to make it so you can bake cookies and if i have enough time i will make it so you can sell the cookies. but if i don't get around to that this week ill probably do it next week.
3
2
I used my time wisely this week...
this week I actually did a really good job. I scripted a whole lot because I made a lot of new sprites. Im actually making really good progress with the game. I decided every 10 cookies that you bake, you sell all ten, it would just make the game a lot easier for me to make. the way i se it there would be a lot a glitches and stuff like that if i didn't do that.
12-21-16
This week I'm going to work on the instructions, notes and credits. I will probably finish that sooner though so i will probably work on the project if i do
3
3
I used my time wisely this week...
This week I did a very good job. I finished my Instructions and credits. I worked pretty hard on those so that took longer than i thought. I also started to work on my project. Its coming along so far.
12-14-16
This week I'm going to finish up the begging of my project and get some things out of the way. The beginning is just the main start page.

(weren't supposed to do)
12-7-16
I decides that I'm going to start another scratch project again instead of bringing my iPad. I don't know exactly what kind of project i will be doing yet but thats what I'm going to do. so Mostly this week will be working on a proposal.
3
4
I used my time wisely today...
This week i got a lot done I made my account and figured out what I'm going to be doing this week. I also finished my proposal. That kind on took a long time though because i didn't know what i was doing at first.
12-1-16
This week i have been looking into a project i want to do on why iPad but forgot to bring my iPad in both days so i decided to look more into the project
3

What got in the way of your learning?
This week i couldn't start my project because i forgot my iPad. I couldn't get as much done as i though i would because i would have started my project. So instead i just researched my project a little more.
11-2-16
This week I'm going to figure out the password for the raspberry pi, since i didn't get the chance to set it up last week.

Describe your progress towards your goals
This year I feel like i was starting off really good with this project and now I'm kind of slowing down. Running into more problems and just mostly not getting stuff done. Im going to try harder to concentrate towards my goal but this is a real hard project. I might actually end up switching projects if it gets too hard, to where I'm not learning as much.
10-26-16
This week I'm going to set the raspberry pi up and figure out the password. Before i was reading the book i set it all up then turned it on and there was a password i couldn't figure out. So hopefully this week i can figure it out.
3
3
i used my time wisely today...
I ran into a lot of problems this week because my password was acting up. Then by the time i got it fixed class was over. Then the next day i didn't get anything done too because it took our group a while to finish up presenting projects. So when we finished that there wasn't enough time to get my stuff set up. But for what happened i still made good progress, i ended up reading a good amount of the book during this time..
10-19-16
This week I'm really just redoing what i did last week because i did a really bad job. so i will read the book some more and if I'm lucky i will finally get on the raspberry pi
2
3
i used my time wisely today...
I got an okay amount done this week. I finally finished reading the basics of the book. But i didn't get to the actual raspberry Pi because i was messing around a little. But i still got the majority done.
10-11-16
This week I'm going to look over the raspberry Pi book i got and if I'm lucky i will start working on setting up the raspberry pi.

I didn't use my time wisely today...

I didn't get as much done as i planned this week because i was talking to friends again. I only read a little bit of the book and i will read more next week.

Describe your progress towards your goals
So far, out of the entire year i got further than i thought i would. I thought i would be way far behind but I'm not. Im actually a little bit ahead. I already got everything hooked up and now i just have to set it up.
10-5-16
This week i hope to organize everything and try to get the raspberry Pi turned on and figure out what is going on with the password
3
3
this link I didn't use my time wisely this week...
This week i organized my box and it looks really good but i got distracted and started talking with friends. So i didn't get to set up the raspberry pi and check out the password. Instead i organized and trailed off talking.
9-28-16
This week I will try to start working with he raspberry pi and see what's happening and what's going on with the start of the project.
4
2
We were efficient because...
This week i actually got a lot done, way more than i expected. I thought that this week i would just hook everything up. But i got a lot further and actually got the raspberry pi up and running! I felt like this week was very good and full of learning.
9-22-16
Today I plan to finish my Proposal and make sure my Portfolio is working.
3
2
This week I used my time wisely...
Today I finished up my proposal and I think it actually turned out okay. I also worked on my Portfolio. I ran into some thinking, my portfolio was the same one from last year and I got really confused.
6-6-16
This week we are going to finish the rest of the traps that we didn't finish a couple weeks ago.
4
4
This year we a lot working with partners...
This year we learned a lot about working with our partners. One thing we learned is how to agree on things, simple and fast, rock paper scissors. We also learned on how to stay on task way better and it is to have fun building and working with redstone in Minecraft. We also learned Many things about redstone and how Minecraft works. We also built about a half of a castle in one quarter!
This year we learned a couple of things...
This year we had a lot of fun building and exploring the worlds of Minecraft. But there has to be one thing we learned about most? Right? Well not really, but i think redstone is just up at the top of the list.
5-31-16
this week we are going to make redstone cannons! and some other little traps if we have some time.
4

Today we used our time wisely today...
Today we did a lot of things with the cannon and redstone. We actually got a lot of progress done. We learned a lot more about how minecraft works along with redstone.

3
4
used my time wisely today....
We did a really good job today and we had some extra time. With our extra time we made the walls way better and way more semetrical. We also put a few traps inside the walls that are pretty fun to get stuck in ;).
4/25/16
We never finished up the walls so we have to finish those and it might take a while because we have to measure. We are also going to make a redstone trapdoor that we made a model of.
2
3
Yesterday we finished a second watch tower. We also started a new redstone trapdoor thing.
4/17/16
This week we are going to work on the redstone and make a hidden chest so when you pull the lever a chest comes up.

3/14/16
This week i plan to keep on working on the conveyer belt and other objects moving and if I'm lucky, just lucky i will finish the conveyer belt because it takes a long time to work on.
3
3
I just barley finished the conveyer belt and JUST started working on a couple of other objects moving, but after i finished that i just barley finished the coding for the conveyer belt. lucky.
3/7/16
Today i plan to to make all of the things i have made move to make it look like the conveyer belt moves. and if i have enough time i will make some candy for the conveyer belt.
3
3
I used my time sort of wisely today......
I actually finished to conveyer belt today but i didn't do the scripting done cause i ran out of time. Although i got a decent amount of work done.
2-29-16
Today i plan to make the start of my game and I finished the start screen so i can start pixelating the beginning of my game.
4
4
I used my time wisely today....
i actually got A LOT done today, i pixelated almost the entire start of my game i only added a little bit of coding though, but I'm am really surprised that i got this much done this week. I pixelated 3 really big and main items for my project.
2-22-
Today i hope to get the game started I'm still thinking on what the game is really going to be so it might take a little bit longer to brainstorm all of the ideas and maybe put some to good uses for my game.
2
1
i didn't use my time too wisely today.....
Today i didn't use my time too wisely i was kind of messing around with friends but i sort of got some work done but not too much done i barley started my game. But i also decided what I'm doing for my project entirely, its kind of weird but I'm making gears and the more gears you have the more money you have, its kind of just like a tycoon game.
2-8-16
Today i hope to get my scratch logo up on the start screen i made for my project. i don't really think i will finish the first day because i have to make my logo move quite a bit to make it look realistic.
3
3
I used my time wisely today....
i used my time pretty wisely today i got to logo up and finished it just in time right before class ended.
2-1-16
Today i am actually switching my project too a new scratch game so I'm going to be working on filling out a proposal, I'm also going to be working alone on a scratch game.
4

I used my time wisely today....
I actually got a LOT done this week, i finished my proposal and actually got a great start on my scratch project, i started to design the first thing and finished the start screen.
1-19-16
Today were going to try and make stuff clickable in the box that would really be the most basic main part of the game, unfortunately we don't have a lot of time though.
3
3
We used our time wisely today...
We made almost all of the items and make them 'clickable' so we used our time very wisely by not getting distracted. We worked so hard we actually lost time and forgot to do our reflection, but we still got it done in time somehow
1-11-16
Today we hope to get a little bit done because we don't have much time but were trying to make it so all of the little devices work (the start of the game mostly)
3
4
We made pretty good progress today, we had fun when we were changing the graphics to all of the devices because there were no issues but when we were coding them we had some failure issues, for some reason we had trouble getting it to be clicked twice because its was the same sprite so we had to switch that up a little bit.
1-5-16
today i was absent so we didn't get much done but the Great Escape is going beautiful.
2
3
today we got more progress done because we were both here and we made the graphics a tiny bit better.

12-8-15
We hope we have time to work on our scratch project, but with coding it might hard.

10/6/15
I plan to start making my Scratch game so it is easier to work on it next time. I'm going to try and make a game with good graphics and make it so its not laggy.


We made good far progress we managed to start our project successfully and we came up with some good ideas so we can get a move on!
10/5/15
I am going to start up my Scratch game with my partner.


Started up our scratch project and got a little of the sprites done
