Today,we met everyone and talked a little about the camp and what we
are going to do.Also, we looked at the
last year's camper's web pages.Then, we started to find things for our
web pages.We got a snack then sat back down to listen to Mr. Kumar talk
about engineering.He talked about some very intresting things that have
to do with air and how air can effect things. Next, we
worked on our web pages alot.Then, we had some yummy pizza lunch. After lunch, we worked
on our web pages more. They showed us how you type things and how to
make them the right size and color. Later, after another snack, we used
kompoZer to make our web pages. KompoZer was really easy. Also, all the
food was really good!
the first thing we did was play around on scratch. Scratch is a program
where you can make cartoons that move and do cool things. Then, we had
a guest speaker named Shawn Walker. He talked about when water droplets
slide, split, combine, and move. He talked about things I had never
thought about much! After he talked, we had a snack.After
snack, we did more Scratch. For lunch, we had fried chicken, biscuits,
corns, and mashed potatoes, which were so good!After lunch, we made
three different things
on Scratch. We made a hurricane safety game, a game of our choice that
we made up, and a dancing thing. That was fun because we could be
creative and do what we wanted. After
another snack, we still made our
games on Scratch. My favorite thing on Scratch we did was make our dances!
The first thing we did to today was listen to guest speakers, Mrs. Sarah and Mr. Patrick. They work at EA. They told us about all the things thay do there and about all the video games they have helped make. It was cool! After that we had snack. After snack, we started working on iMovies for our interviews. IT was fun to play around with it. Then, we went on this program called Alice3. Alice3 is like Scratch but it's cooler and I think it is easier and more fun. Next, we had lunch. For lunch, we had yummy hot dogs and hamburgers! After lunch, we played on Alice3 a little more. Then, we did our interviews. I interviewed a girl named Emily. That was really fun! After that, we edited them and updated our web pages.
Today, we shared some of our Alice3 creations. Then, we had a guest
speaker named Dr. Jesse. He talked to us about how you can make
music on computers. He showed us some of the music he has
created. Also, he took us up to the second floor to show us this
Missippi River sculpture thing. It is piecies of wood carved. all the
carved parts represent how deep the river is in those parts of the
actual river. On the back of each board, there is half a speaker that
plays live sounds from the river that were changed a little on the
coputer. It was really cool. Then, we went back to the room and worked
on little things.Next, we had lunch. For lunch, we had tacos, mexican
rice, and chips and salsa. It was delicious! After lunch, we did
played on Alice3. Then, we had snack and after snack a guest speaker
came. She talked to us about the different engineering majors you can
take at LSU. There are so many different ones!
when we got here worked on our webpages. We have to make sure
they looked good for the judging later today.We also worked on Alice3.
Then, after snack, we played around on GameSalad. GameSalad is a
computer program where you can make games. That was cool! Then, we had
pizza for lunch. After lunch, we worked on our webpages some before
they got judged. I was excited to see the outcome of the judging!
I am sad that today is our last day because I've had so much fun. I've
learned so much in just five days!
