Pitch Day went really well! I thought it was super fun to present, and I loved talking about my idea. I'm pretty sure they liked my idea, so that's good. Winter break is coming up, and my mentors are my uncles. So I will be getting some help designing the seat, then I am going to build a model! So far so good!

For our Pitch Day on the last day of school before winter break, I'm creating a video about the car idea. I have a pretty good idea on how the seat is supposed to look, but I'm still working on how wide the car itself needs to be in order to fit the seats. I've also noticed that when you are sitting in the middle, turning might feel a little off, but so far, I think people will just have to live with it. I hope whoever is coming in to see my project, I hope that they like it.

At school we are starting our 20% time in class. I decided to design a new kind of car, or at least a new kind of car seat. I got the inspiration from my grandpa, who is really into cars. He was telling me all about them on our trip to Disneyworld when I got the idea. So picture this: You get into the car in the drivers side. You flip the seat back and slide into the middle of the front row. You then flip the seat back to the front, and two other people can sit in the front. So the drivers seat will be in the middle, and two other people will sit on his/her side. The car will have to be longer then regular cars for this to work, but I think I can pull it off.
