This is my final reflection.
I have learned a few things in this class. If it is a group project or not I have learned that you only are aloud to talk to your partner and if you don't have a partner, you aren't aloud to talk to anyone else because you will distract yourself and others.. I have done a wide range of different projects this year. It goes from stop motion to scratch, to Popsicle boat, to gamester mechanic. Over this year, I have improved on my reflections making me a better type person and a smarter writer.

I have a lot of problems in this class. I have not learned how to stay on task, every time I hear some one talking, I would get distracted and either turn around or go over to them and talk. Another one of my problems are "Time Management" I always work too long and forget to do my reflection or I stop working 10 minutes early and then I go and distract everyone else.

What was fun? What did I/we enjoy?... Today, I asked Mr. Whitmer if he had any "mini make" projects and he did he gave me materials to build a "Bee Hummer". He gave me: 1 Popsicle Stick, 2 Erasers, 1 Big Rubber Band, A piece of twine and a sticky note. It took me about 16 Minutes to build the whole thing, and then I had to test it out. At first when I was spinning the "Bee Hummer" it wasn't working, then I tried to spin it the other way and I heard a loud "bee humming" noise. It was a fun project. After I finished that project, I asked Mr. Whitmer if he had anymore "mini make" projects and he gave me: 1 CD, 1 Balloon, 1 Pull bottle cap. I watched a video on how to build it, after I have finished my CD Hoverboard, I go out in the hallway and test it. I enjoyed both projects.

To cut my Popsicle sticks with three different types of saws, a pair of scissors, and tin clips
4
4
I learned. . . that you can not cut Popsicle sticks with scissors because it splits down the middle and breaks the whole Popsicle stick into at least 3 pieces. Also I learned that a saw can not cut the Popsicle sticks to well because it doesn't have enough wood to catch on to. Then finally the tin clips the worked perfectly the cut the Popsicle stick perfectly with out damaging the rest of the Popsicle stick. So overall I learned that Popsicle sticks are not tho easy to cut as you imagined.
