In this blog, I will show all the steps I took in the making of my prototype of a brand new hovercraft!

Along with working on my metal stool chair, I've also been working on a project at my school's STEAM Club. Last year I worked on making an individual life size hovercraft and present it at the science fair. This year, we are planning to make a new and improved version.

As the school year is coming to an end, I thought it would be best to make an end of the year post.

I'm going to be briefly answering questions that will wrap up my senior year of my Machines & Tools Class.

Continuing with the Metal Stool Project, I faced some difficulties welding the two legs together. As I was welding on the leg, I saw that I made hole on the top, flat part of the leg where the two legs will connect. Because of that, I couldn't use the MIG Welder even with lowest temperature. That's when I had to use a TIG Welder.

In this blog, I will be discussing the next steps my group took in order to fix the chair. After, we cleaned every part of the chair. We knew the next step was to start attaching the legs back to the plate of the chair. But the question was how??

My next project for my Machines and Tools class was to design a structure for a metal stool that will make it withstand properly and more durable.

This marking period, I was assigned a very festive project for my Machines and Tools class. We learned about cutting sheet metal and learning different ways to manipulate it.

This year, I'm taking up a new challenge! I signed up to take a Machines and Tools class at my school and I can already say that it's really cool. My teacher Mr. G gave us a really interesting first assignment. He introduced my class to the invention of the first battery made out of copper and zinc!
Question: What's a penny battery?
Kelly: Basically it's a battery made out pennies!
