We started of thinking of what to write down in our books about our astronaut's life/biography and I chose Frank Borman. After we wrote our biography's we made an interview and after we wrote that down we went to get some Ipads and we use some apps called Morpho Booth and Imovie. We use Morpho Booth and we find a picture of our astronaut and after we save it and we put it in Morpho Booth and then we start recording our interview. We use the camera app also to record our things to say like welcome to the show and stuff like that. After we use Imovie to stick it all in and then later this is what u get with the finished version!
Have you ever imagined flying in an extremely fast spaceship? Or have you ever dreamed of glancing at the extraordinary, tiny stars? Well, Frank Borman bravely and carefully achieved that goal and was surrounded by gigantic, magnificent planet. Read more to find out about this spectacular astronaut.
In 1928 March 14 at Gary, Indiana, Frank Borman was born. As a child, Borman was always interested of blasting in the sky and flying, especially when his parents (Marjorie and Edwin) let him to on aeroplanes. He was a test pilot so he was insanely brave and that inspired him a bit more to and made him want to be a pilot! Soon afterwards, he became a fighter pilot!
As he grew older, he absolutely loved to fly planes and blast them in the air. Almost unbelievably, he did that at the age 15! He attended at the U.S Military Academy and bravely earned his air force wings in 1951.
Many years later, In 1962 he luckily was picked by NASA to be part of the second group of brave, skilled astronauts. Shockingly, he went in a dangerous space mission with James A.Lovell into the Gemini 7 mission! Unfortunately he had to retire in 1970 from the air force work and also he had to retire in 1986 from The Eastern Company.
Strangely but happily, Frank Borman is still alive to this day and he is an extremely old man (89 years old). I honestly think that this fearless astronaut is one of the most important person to live in this wonderful world.
For the first day of Stem week I went to Mr. Porter's class and we made a boat that had to float and it couldn't be to heavy or it will sink immediately. We had some modelling clay to build our boat and he would put some marbles every 2 seconds but my group's boat sank instantly.
On Tuesday we went to Ms. Philips and we were protecting our egg so when we drop it that it won't crack at all. We tried it until the door height and then we went to the lily theater and we dropped it down and my group's one didn't crack at all!
On Wednesday we went to Mr. Collet and we were using our engineering skills by building a land yacht and we powered it by a fan. We had different names for different group's land yacht and our name was Titanic The 2nd.
On Thursday we went to learn with Mr. Kenyon and we were learning about the vitruvian man a drawing made by Leonardo Di vinci. We were seeing if Di Vinci's theory was correct and to find out that we measured each other. (the arm span and the height). His theory was that the arm span is the same as your height , but for me it didn't work.
On Friday we went to discover new things with Ms. Elrick and we needed to use our engineering skills the most for this one. We were building the tallest tower as possible which you need to put a ping pong ball at the top of it. You could only use 5 newspaper and 5 paperclips and scissors but if you cut it you wouldn't be able to tape it so you had to be very careful. For my group we won in our whole group which is group 3 and our tower got to 144 cm and it didn't fall at all.
Coral Ocean was in jail waiting to get out. It was visiting time and no one came to her visit her.
The guards were letting people out to reunite with their families. No one came to her cell. There was a tear that rolled down on the bars trying to get out. The only thing she had was food and the tears were dropping on it and made her food all soggy and wet.
A guard comes stomping by, "Are you ok in here?" sneered the guard. "Oh are you blind I'm having an amazing time in here!" yelled Coral Ocean, as she quickly turned away.
WE have been making presentations about the different parts of the brain.
When I got there, I was so unhappy,but also melting with excitement! After a while I saw people with petrifying skeletons costumes that looked terrifying. Then after someone was dancing and singing a joyful song which cheered people up and we were all dancing. The Mexican town was lifeless because they were depressed. Even though everyone was heartbroken, they still had some fun.
When I was walking around,I could smell some delicious burritos and tacos. I knew I had to get one. I tasted it and I was on fire and burning inside my mouth. I saw lots of food everywhere some were still steaming in my mouth and some were excellent.
I saw lots of people having a skeleton face paint that was artistically terrifying. Almost unbelievably lots of people were dancing with joy that made the Day Of The DEAD (Dia De Los Muertos)more enjoyable and it was like the festival was coming to life. There was so many photos of the people who passed away with their favourite things.
I heard people playing music that was affecting people because they were crying out loud so much that I thought they were going to flood the whole town! Also, there were lots of big,loud chatter boxes everywhere and I thought my ears were going to bleed!
The incredibly bright candles were burning a lot and I saw there were lots of gorgeous flowers to pay respect of the people who passed away. I explored the depressed, dark graveyards. I felt like the people’s spirit would haunt me and I was horrified. Suddenly there was no one touching me but I felt like I was getting pulled in by magical magnet. Then I was getting pulled graveyard. I got pulled underground, I realized I was stuck and I never ever could get out!
