Top Projects:


i feel like i have grown in the project and have learned new things while doing it. also i have learned that DIY is not really for me and that i kept messing up in making slime but the other experiments were fine. also i have learned that i presenting DIY things is hard work. also i had fun in the making of slime and i liked finding recipes and not looking on a website for recipes. also it was fun doing a project with one of my friends. but the down side was we didn't always have supplies to always do what we want to do that day but we would always do something else instead.



  • Lego NXT Project page
  • I feel like i have grown as a person in this field and i think i can do much more in the field of robotic and i think in high school i might pressu something like it later on down the road like maybe a robotics class. it was really hard for me because i had these really good designs but i didn't know how to execute them so i just had to keep trying this project really tested my patients and i had a lot o struggle through out the project but in all i had fun and i plan on continuing this project next quarter and i plan on moving to harder robot ideas because i feel like i am ready for the challenge and i feel like it would be really fun to try something new.
  • NXT Lego project

  • i liked this project because its something that i really have never done before and it tested my limits by design flaws and wrong pieces. it was really hard for me because i had these really good designs but i didn't know how to execute them so i just had to keep trying this project really tested my patients and i had a lot o struggle through out the project but in all i had fun and i plan on continuing this project next quarter and i plan on moving to harder robot ideas because i feel like i am ready for the challenge and i feel like it would be really fun to try something new.

  • My Ukulele

  • i liked this project a lot because i went out of my comfort zone and tried something i really didn't have any experience in doing so i tried something new and had a lot of fun doing it. i also had fun doing this because it was a challenge and i felt good and confidant doing it. i recorded one song( Lime in the coconut) and was to easy because it was one cord and one finger so i will for sure continue this project this quarter because i felt like i really liked this project because i now love playing music and its a good way to express who you are. next time i will try two cord songs and then three the four and so on and so forth until i get good.


  • hype3 animation

  • i chose this because i felt like i really could focus on my project i had a lot of fun doing it and maybe next year i will continue with this same project next year in my project i have learned how to create animations and its really simple. i feel like i really knew how to do it and if i thought this was hard than what would it be like to make a real app.

YouTube Video Journal CRW2


      • I chose this because i feel like i have made good progress and i will continue to make more videos in the future. when i make my videos i have a lot of fun while learning what I'm capable of because this project has made me understand how much work it takes to make a video. i think in the future i will continue my project. i chose to continue my channel because i think its a really good experience for me and a good learning key.
      • game star mechanic

      • i chose this because i felt like i could really have fun with this and really learn from this and further grow my game skills by learning how to make games. i think in the future i will try this again because i had a lot of fun doing this. this project has taught me how lucky i am to not work for every thing and not be to needy and want things i don't need because making a game is a lot of work.
      • Paper Airplane

i chose this because it is really fun and i think i could learn alot from this project like how planes fly and how they work i have always wonderd that ever since i was a little kid I've been fascinated with planes and was really excited to do this project

Top Reflections:

What went well...
we had shortened classes that day

what problems/difficulties did you face
a lot of things went wrong like we ran out of supplies fast and kids were crowding our booth.
how did you(or someone else) try to try to solve them...
well first we asked them ourselves to stop and please go away and then i had to ask mrs weage to ask everyone but no one was listening.
if I were in charge how would i make it better or more successful?
i would make a limit on how many people were at your table and we would also hide our supplies so we wouldn't have our supplies be gone so fast.


i chose this reflection because this reflection is not just type 2 its a really good one because i talked about all of the challenges i had and how i over came them. also i chose this because it was one of my better reflections and one that i am more proud of. also i like this because it was what went well, what went wrong, and how would i change it. also i liked it because it really went into detail on what happened that day


This week I/we took the proper time for the job when ...
this week i had an advantage because Will and Ryan were gone and unable to work on their project there for unable to fix their robot so i could have more time to fix any things and perfect it. Also i worked diligently because i wasn't distracted and talking to either Will or Ryan so i got a lot of work done this week and i have a good chance of winning next class
i chose this reflection because i think i had a lot of description because will was not here and Ryan and i could not do anything so i was fair to will. and making a robot is very time consuming and we only have 3 days to build a robot and now i have realized how much work it actually takes to build a robot.

Changes in perspective about self or learning...
i have learned that i like to build robots and am kinda learning about myself and that i might want to be a engineer when I'm older and i could take up a job in this field and i don't just want to be a doctor and i changed my perspective in a way that i don't see this as just a way to pass time anymore and more like a hobby because i can see why people like it so much and now i have more respect for things like this because it isn't that easy to do.
i chose this because it really changed my point of view towards these types of things and that it is really kind of hard to do these types of things and i have grown a strong respect for people who do these kinds of things because it is not he easiest thing to do and takes a lot of time and effort.

One example of a FAILure we had was ...

when i went to go embed my video there was nothing there to copy and embed so i couldn't do it so now i need to ask Zoe how to embed the video so i can post it on to my wiki because i need it by tuseday or else it is a zero in the grade book and its almost the end of the quarter.

I liked this one because it was one example of what i needed to do and how i could do it and i did do it it is on my project page and didnt turn out how i wanted it to turn out but it is not the worst but i still could do better this video was one cord and one finger. i think that there could be more to it like i didnt cut any of the talking parts and the end but i eventually learned how to play that song with no fingers i tuned it up to a b flat so it sounds like a c7 and i did two parts to it and i feel proud of it


today i could not log on to lynda.com because it would not take my library card so i wasn't able to log on but i overcame that challenge by playing around and exploring the program and am now creating a little animation of a game of tag today i learned to bring my library card instead of writing it down on a sheet of paper. but next time i will bring my library card and watch videos on lynda.com so i can learn more about this program instead of doing it myself. i think that i have not made a lot of progress but i have watched videos on the tumult website and have a good idea of what it does and how to use it.
i chose this reflection because this reflection is not just type 2 its a really good one because i talked about all of the challenges i had and how i over came them.




my pie face was a success and i had a lot of fun doing it and i plan to do challenges like this again. i feel like i have learned something today its that i like to make videos and having fun doing them.
I chose this one because i am most proud of this project and was the most fun to do. i think i have learned a little more about my friends. i have learned that making videos is more than just filming yourself you edit the videos and its a pain to post the videos you have to wait an hour or so. any ways i had a lot of fun and this reflection was the best because it had that funny and silly element that i like and since it was a game we had a lot of fun with this video.


"i have made my video and it was a success but have not uploaded it yet but i plan on doing that soon today i have learned that what makes a plane lift is that high pressure air under the wing and theres low pressure air onto of the wing so the high pressure all ways wants to even it out so high pressure goes up and trys to go up and it lifts the plane."
i chose this reflection because it shows how much i have learned this year and how planes fly i felt proud because this reflect was a really good one i think and was really happy the way it turned out.



  • "This week I/we had a breakthrough when ... i got suggestions to make a hard level."
    • i chose this reflection because that was the day i got inspired to make a really hard ,really tough, super ultra mega level that i got suggested to do in one of my presentations. i also liked that idea because i thought that it really tested my ability as a game star mechanic game maker. i also felt it tested me because i never really made a game before and now making a really hard one i feel really proud of what i made. i feel that i also need to make my reflections longer because i have done more than what i had typed.

Top Critiques:


i think you should get someone else to sing it and then put that into a recording then play along with just the lyrics at the maker fair

i like this one because it gave him options on what he could do that day and what he could do instead of singing the real song because he said that he didn't really want to sing the song and this is an alternative option instead of singing

i think you should make video tutorials while you are learning the song
i think i gave him a good critique because i think he could have really expanded his skills into video and not just guitar so he could do more and not just learn a song so i think it was a good critique but it wasn't long it was really short but i think that i could do so much more with my talent so i think it was good but not long enough

i like your project and you should learn the whole song but slowly get faster
his project was good but i think he should have learned the song slower so he could piece them all together and make the whole song

when you take your pictures you should have a purpose of taking them like a theme every week or every day not just random photos

i gave this one because the pictures he was taking had no meaning i felt like they had no purpose and they were just taking random pictures of what ever so i said that is that he should have a purpose to all of his photos like a theme for every week and should put them in a slide show to like showcase them. i like this one because it had some content to it but in a small package. and take meaningful pictures because a picture is worth a million words and can be very pleasnt to look at.

i think that you should focus on one game like a sim game and make a series about it
i put this critique because it tells him to stay on one game because his games were all over the place like one was mine craft than one was a completely different game.


i think you should make a puzzle game with mazes and puzzles
i chose this because it is the one that gives him the most info and tells him how to do better in making his videos.

  • "Charlie, I think you have to work on the making new levels and making your level a little bit harder. You should make different enemy's and not the same enemy's"
    • because it wasn't like the other ones telling me to make a maze i felt like it really wanted me to do better as a new partial gamer/maker because i felt it was trying to tell me to do better as i am progressing in making and posting my games because it told me to challenge my self and make harder games with harder enemy's and different sprites ( characters). i also like this because i was typed really well and looked really nice because it talked about every thing and was really helpful.

  • "i think you should make a puzzle game with mazes and puzzles"

  • i like this because i have told him to work harder and make games that could benefit every one not just games he wants to make and also that he should try hard in what he makes and not make things that he is comfortable in making and go out if his comfort zone and get out there in what he makes.
