Hi I’m Lindsay. I go to Omni Middle School and I am a 6 th grader. Some of my interests are cheerleading, singing, acting, playing sports, hanging out with friends and family, and just having fun! My favorite color is blue and I am having a great school year. I also like messing around with technology and I am glad that I am in this Introduction to Technology Class. Lindsay M.

The system of the Name Game was to have one person from your table to go around and meet the people that are staying and sitting at the tables. The benefits of the Name Game were that we could meet new people in our Technology Class. The problem with the original system was that when one group of people moved around and the others stayed, the people who where sitting down didn’t get the meet the other people sitting down. Also the people who were moving around couldn’t meet the other people moving around. We modified the name game by having all of the people sitting down go one side and all of the people that were moving around went on the other side to meet the people they never met yet.

The Marshmallow Challenge! In class we did the Marshmallow Challenge. What we had to do was build the tallest free standing building out of 20 sticks of uncooked spaghetti, a yard of string, a yard of tape, scissors, and a marshmallow. We had to build the building in 18 minutes. It was a fun and interesting process and when we were finished we had to make sure it was still free standing by its self. Then we measured it with a yard stick and we compared all of the tables measurements. My group’s idea was to take a few pieces of the uncooked spaghetti and brake it into a few pieces and use them to hold up the marshmallow. Then, we tried taping more and more pieces of spaghetti until we couldn’t anymore and so we had room to put the marshmallow on top. My table’s turned out to be 15” inches.
