  • Try building another rocket/edit
  • Figure out how to make our rocket not go out of control when warping.
3

What helped your learning?
YouTube helped our learning because it showed us how to make a rocket that can go to the "Mun." Another example would be that we worked together really well by telling exact parts and not goofing around.
10-4-17
  • Watch the YouTube videos on building a successful.
  • Build another rocket.

  • Watch YouTube videos on how to make a decent rocket.
  • Figure out the glitch that won't let us launch.

Make Share Faire Reflection
  • What went well?
    • The amount of people that actually thought it was cool.
    • People were giving strategies for our car to make it better.
    • Our setup went well because for example, people looked at how our car was made (materials).
  • žWhat problems/difficulties did you face?
    • —(Problem): Our car wasn't moving that far.
    • (Solution): We gave it a push each time somebody asked.
    • (Problem): We didn't get to say every fail, etc.
    • (Solution): We said it but the people asked just for the car to move. (Problem unsolved).
  • žIf I were in charge…
    • I would put trash cans near every area so the spaces are clean.
    • There should be lines instead of crowds, meaning it is required to make a small space where the line should be.
    • I would make more groups so it is not so crowded because I could barely move in the hallway.
    • Maybe we could separate it into grades like 5/6 so it won't be crowded.
    • Maybe it could be outside so its not so crowded.
