Iowa State Reflection

At Iowa State, my first class was food science where we learned how to make cheese curds and tofu. We also got to taste some cheese and tofu and rate it on a scale of 1-10. I liked the provolone the best (at least I think it was provolone). My second class was Improvisational Theatre were we did some games as a group like making eye contact, and making really weird, random noises. I was funny and I think it taught a lot of people to learn to be able to laugh at yourself. I think the most educational thing we did at Iowa State was learn about Virtual Reality. I was really cool learning about the different stages of it and how far it's come. The most fun we had was touring the campus and seeing how big the campus really was. If I were to criticize one thing it was that getting lunch on two different floors was a little bit weird. But the food was good. What I really got from it was that every place we visited, everyone was working hard and they had a desire to to a good job at what they wanted to do. It was very inspiring.

Independent Project

     My topic was on Medical Marijuana. I chose it because I don't know much about it and it's pretty controversial. I didn't know that it could be used by brewing and eating it besides smoking it. I would still like to find out what the percentages of people who use marijuana for medical purposes are. I chose to present my facts in a Buncee. I really like all the information that I had on the government side of my project.

DWA Publishing 1st Quarter

1.) 9/11/17 I don't think teenagers should be able to vote because, us kids will most likely do something stupid, and vote for Kanye West or something stupid like that to be funny. In other words, Adult decisions are more mature when it comes to voting. 2.) 9/13/17 If I were invisible for a day, I would steal money from drug dealers, and donate anonymously to as many charities as I could,then I would fly to Dubai first class and jump off the Burj Khalifa, with a parachute of course.

Words of wisdom

This project taught me that A lot of people have great advice for life and that you should never judge anyone, EVER. This project also gave me a better understanding for how hard it is to come up with advice just of the top of your head.

Nauvoo field trip reflection

Going to the visitors center and watching the movie, I feel really good every time I watch it. I learned how they made barrels and the tools they used to make to them. They were persecuted for what they believe. Blacksmithing because it is a really cool topic that I'm interested in.

Moral Dilemma Lit Circle

  Warning, this contains spoilers. I think a moral dilemma is the choice between right and wrong for the right or wrong reason. The main moral dilemma in our book was that a guy named Bevin Connor trying to the fool the country by making a kid from an orphanage king. Well the thing is, the kid Sage, is already the prince from 4 years ago. So they have to figure out how to get ''Sage" King. They didn't really solve it though. But Connor going to jail definitely helped matters. I would have at least tried to have been happy with the current king. I think running would have been the best option if I were Sage.

Invent Iowa

     Our (me and Tate's) Invention was called The Copper Stabilizer. It was basically improving Copper fit. It basically is a nylon knee-strap laced with copper. then copper wires run down the backsides of the legs which connects to a detachable heel plate (similar to a shoe horn).
     We were trying to solve the problem of leg pain. Some examples are: Arthritis, cramps, and Diabetic Nerve Pain just to name a few.
     It uses the copper to straighten your legs, and conduct heat and electricity. It also reduces odor. 
     I am really proud of our poster. It looks pretty good and it is labeled.
     I really struggled filling out my Inventors Journal. I made all of them up later on though. 
     Make our poster look better probably.
