Genius hour blog #2

I am making a volcano  with nelson. I have been learning about how volcanoes form, how they erupt, and other things about volcanoes.  I learn that volcanos form from continetal drift. I have also  the danger area of a erupting volcano is about 10 to 20 miles. There are 500 active volcanoes in the ring of fire. Volcanoes are active, domain, or extict. There are 20 volcanoes going off right now. The tallest volcano in the solar syatem is not on earth but on mars. They erupt from mama escaping the crust of the earth. They grow quickly. The tallest and biggest volcanoes are side by side.  The most distant point from the center of the earth is a volcano, you might think its the point of mount everest, but its not because points on the equator are further from the center of the earth. More than 80% of earths surface is made out of volcanic eruptions.

Iowa state

My favorite part of going to Iowa State was the virtual world presentation. They showed how they made 3D movies. I was surprised by how big the college was. I want to go to Iowa state because there’s lots of engineering. On the tour tour the guy said they threw potatoes to decide were they would plant trees. It was officially established on March 22, 1858. The cost was about $5000. The first class had 26 people 24 men and 2 women. Today there are almost 30000 students that go to Iowa state. They have a hairy potter game called qutish. The sports are baseball, football, wrestling, soccer, swimming, and basketball. Its top 100 places to live. Top 25 smartest college towns. About 9000 people got to Iowa state for engineering.

Genius hour project

For my project i’m making volcano with Nelson. I’m making a volcano because it would be fun and I can learn stuff about volcano’s. My goal for the project is to learn about volcano’s and make it erupt. I I will know I I reached my goal when the volcano erupts and I’ve learned about how they erupt and why. We are going to use paper mache, red pop, paint and mentoes. The things I want to learn are how a volcano erupts, how long does one usually last, how long does the high can the lava go, and how much lava is comes out of the volcano.  I think my end project will have and eruption. We’ve been trying to find out what we should use for the eruption. First we thought we were going to use baking soda, vinegar and food coloring, but we thought this would make a bigger explosion. This project will be beneficial to others because they can learn about volcano’s and will be fun to watch. My main focus is to make the volcano erupt and learn alot about volcanos. My motivation to do this is to be able to watch our volcano erupt.

Spring Break

This spring break I went to Wisconsin dells. My family and I went for 4 days. It was only the inside pool and the outdoor and indoor theme park. We stayed at Mt. Olympus. Next to the hotel was the water park and theme park. There was a lot of people there and all the slides had long lines. The day we left we went out to eat and they gave our food to us on a train.  When we got home from Wisconsin dells my cousin said he was coming down from Minnesota for Easter. The first day he got here we went to the stadium and played basketball and football. On Saturday we played basketball all day and played knock out. On Sunday we went to church in the morning. When we got back we had friends come over and played on my trampoline. My cousin didn’t have school today so he stayed one more night. Thats what I did this spring break.
