Genius Hour #3

This week during my genius hour time in class, I have finished my elevator pitch and presented it in front of the class. I didn’t have a lot of trouble making the pitch. This week I have met my goal of starting research, by learning about a new helmet called ZERO1. By the end of next week I hope to have finished researching this helmet and move onto a different one.

Genius Hour Project

I have decided to follow my passion of sports, and do something related to that. The project I will be doing is; How canĀ  we change or modify football gear to cause less injuries? I chose this topic because I love football and so do all of my friends. One of them couldn’t play because their parents didn’t want him to get hurt. So I got to thinking, and I wanted to make football gear better so that my friend could play. By the end of my project I would like to learn about ways to make football gear safer, and even design a more secure helmet if possible. Thank you for reading, and I will keep you posted on how my project is going!

Dewey’s Car Invention

Dewey was on his annual commute to his mom’s house for Thanksgiving dinner. On his way he had a terrible mishab. He fell of his horse and broke his left arm and foot. As it came to him, he realized that he couldn’t ride his horse or get to his mom’s house. As he felt very bad about not being able to make it to his mother’s house, he wanted there to be a way to get there without having to work. Due to his condition, he thought of the car, because you only needed 1 foot and arm to drive. After many years he made the car. After he invented the car and he started to drive it he arrived at his mom’s house 5x faster than he used to!

Hatchet Next Step

Brian has recently survived a plane crash, and he is very sore and in pain. The plane went down next to a lake in the middle of a huge forest. He has been having flashbacks about his mom cheating on his dad, or “The Secret.” He has been getting bit by thousands of mosquitoes and flies. He is very tired and weary, and he needs to do something to help him get out of this scenario.

I think that Brian will use the hatchet to help him build a little tepee to rest in. I also think that he will build a fire. Building a fire will keep the bugs away, and give him warmth in the cold of the night.
