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.
