Next, Mr. Kurmar, a guest speaker came in the room and talked to us about engineering. He told us very interesting things and showed us very interesting videos about engineering. After a while, Ms. Kathy told us the steps to putting our webpage together and we started working on them. A few minutes later we took a break for lunch. We came back into the room and continued working on our webpages. Today was great, I can't wait for the rest of the week!
