•—Science blog week 9/10—•
What I am designing: I had three choices I which was to make a car and show how it will move using force and we also had the choice to make a board game and there was also we could make a miniature playground and I chose to make a miniature playground because I thought I can be creative and make cool stuff.
What is Working well what is working well for me is the sewing and the slide because at first when Hailee and I first started to make the miniature play ground we had no idea what we were going to start making. We decided to make the sewing because we thought we could start on something easy. The slide wasn’t working out because we made a slide using popsicle sticks and it broke in like 10sec so we made another one using a toilet role and it worked really well.
My struggles were the glue sticks and gluing stuff on because people kept asking me and Heilee if they can use my glue stick and I kept saying no but they kept on asking. When I glued the stuff on the the miniature playground it was so messy and hot.
What are my improvements my improvements are that I chose to work with someone I have not worked with yet because I normally work with Margo or Ella so I decided to work with someone I have never worked with and it was a good choice.
My next step my next step is to improve on the platform and to Make the miniature playground more colour in it because it looks very dark.
