I think it went really well! I actually enjoyed standing up and talking to people on stage! (kinda) I think I may continue to think about my idea and possibly continue it after school ends, but no promises. If you want to see my talk go to harmonizedlearning.com and check it out. I think it ran a little on the fast side. If I had to do this again, I would stretch it out for longer and have more fun with it.

Hello people! Sorry I didn't post last week. TED Talks are on May 18th, practically right around the corner! Pictures will be up tomorrow or later today of my progress on the project. I would get one up right now but I'm at school. Anyway, I was thinking about how I was going to continue building without a proper workshop, and to my surprise, my dad has a whole workshop in our basement! Perfect! I think I'm in a good place for my project to be right now to be honest.

I have started work on my project!! Pictures will be up soon, but I'm at school and I don't have my project, but there will DEFINITELY be pictures. Ted talks are coming up really soon, so I have to work double time because I'm behind on the schedule I made mentally. Once again, I'm really nervous! I hope it goes well.

Hey guys, sorry for no pictures this week, but we have the materials! We bought them this week and we are going to get more this weekend. I figured out that at the most by the Ted talks I will have the three seats mostly finished and a little dashboard, but I really have to get working. Like, today.

I went on a trip over Spring Break to the mountains in Virginia. While we were driving up and down the mountain, I noticed that it's kind of hard to stay on the right side of the road. People kept drifting off to the side and crossing the line (I was a little terrified) So that gave me something to think about. Maybe I can try to put in a little alarm idea/thingy to tell you that you have gone over the line if there is one (just an idea!)

Ok, so probably Wednesday, me and my dad are going to finally order the supplies for the car model! I'm, again, really excited! I love to build things (even if sometimes they are awful) so this is a project that I am super excited about! The next post I make will be pictures of the supplies, or the order page for the supplies, so yeah. Still excited!

I have began work completing the idea I had. But the idea showcase is coming up in a couple weeks and I am so nervous. I know that once I'm doing it I'll be fine, it's just the making of the poster that seems like a challenge right now. I literally don't have any time to go and make it because I'm so busy, but I'll figure out a way.

So last night my grandpa and I were brainstorming and we came up with a cool little idea. The way you are going to get into the car now is through the back. There will be a ramp for you to walk up. The drivers seat will be turned around like a spinny stool, and the driver will get into the chair and turn him and the chair around. The chair will then lock into place so nobody will just randomly spin around the whole time. I still need to completely design it, but we are getting there!

Good news, my grandpa's in town! Now at some point I can get some help with making a model/prototype of the car! In the meantime, I am going to be working on the Idea Showcase, which is a chance for anyone to come and see my project and check it out. So I will put up some pictures soon, but until I have more materials, nothing will be up yet. I'll put up some pictures of the tri-fold board when it's getting pretty good. I am going to start again.

Over break, I met up with my mentor, who is my grandpa. He is also coming at the end of this month! So I am going to start working on a prototype. I didn't do any real work over break unfortunately, but hey, it was Christmas, and I was out of town. But now, I'm going to actually start working really hard on making an almost to scale model of what I want it to be. I will start uploading pictures once I start going somewhere.
