One Word 2018

My word is wonder (not because of the book) and I chose it because I thought that the new year could possibly be full of wonders. Wonder is something that can happen that you don't expect like if you are stressed, you wouldn't expect good things to happen during the worst times.

Iowa State OPPTAG Experience Reflection

My first class was Biotechnology DNA Smoothie. It was probably my favorite of the two sessions because we got to drink smoothies. We also made a mixture of banana, salt, and shampoo to see the Banana DNA in little test tubes. When you put a toothpick in the DNA test tube and spin the toothpick and pull it out, some of the DNA comes out onto the toothpick. it becomes sort of like a gel.
       My second session was Stand by your quote- Exploring Leadership. In that class we chose a famous quote ans stood by it. We got to know each other and then wrote down characteristics of a leader involving our quote. We also wrote down how we could relate to leaders. I learned what different quotes mean and how leaders act.
      The most educational part of my day was the VRAC demos. We learned all about how virtual reality works. We also got to use VR glasses! WE watched 3 demos. Their was an aircraft carrier, a tractor designer, and a ton of galaxies.
      Something I learned about Iowa State University is that they can do classes for the same price as that college somewhere else. Like some students go to Hawaii, Florida, the Bahamas, and other places too.
      The best part of the day was probably lunch. Everything was really fun, but lunch was an all you can eat buffet! It was really good. But other than that it was probably the VRAC because it was really cool.
      If I could give advice on one thing that would make the experience better would be more classes instead of only two. It would give more variety and be an even better experience.
     What I got out of the experience is that college might be really fun. Also, I learned a little bit of how college works. I understood that it's similar to school, but their are some differences.

My Presentation on Sea Otters

My topic was on Sea otters. I chose it because I really like sea otters but I didn't know much about them. 3 really cool things I learned were how they use rocks to open shellfish, can go 5 to 6 mph underwater, and how they can tuck food in flaps under armpits until they are at sea level. The only thing I would still want to find out is how intelligent they are. I presented my project through a google presentation. I am proud of my project because I worked hard and I found lots of pictures. I would add more pictures to my project if I could improve it.

DWA Publishing 1st Quarter

I agree with the quote "Imagination is more important than knowledge.Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." -Albert Einstein. I agree because people can learn a lot, but imagination never stops. DWA 9-6

If I had 50 dollars to donate to charity, I would donate to ASPCA because it's really sad when animals are abused from previous owners and then they never get adopted because of their pasts. DWA 9-14

Words of Wisdom Reflection

From the Words of Wisdom project, I have learned that many people have a good outlook in life and that they care about what happens to people close to them.

Nauvoo Field Trip Reflection

My favorite part of the field trip was the Pioneer Pastimes because there were lots of really cool games their like the stilts that you would try to walk on and I also really like the game where you raced your wooden bear up the rope.
And something new that I learned about people at that time was how they got along with each other very well and they never really fought with anyone else.
A reason the mormons moved was because a lot of violence was starting to spread so they had to leave and they decided to go to the rocky mountains.
I would research more about their food and bakeries because I like food and because it would be cool to compare the food they had then and the food we have now.
