Of all the weeks of technology, we have been making inventions. So the first thing that we did was we picked what we wanted to invent by brainstorming things that we wanted to solve in the world, then we drew a picture of it using drawisland.com, after that we made a website with Weebly.com, we created a budget with Google numbers, we made an infographic with Piktochart, we built a prototype in Minecraft, and then we made a storyboard for our pitching ideas with storyboardthat.com. After that process, we had to present like we were on Shark Tank. It was really cool! So we acted like we were the "judges" and we listened to everyone that presented. Everyone in the class presented what their product was. On the computer in Google forms, we voted for the one that we like and wanted to "invest" in the most. Kelli and Jonathan won. Kelli's invention was the "Kitty Toilet". It was a toilet that flushes for cats. She was motivated to invent that because kids are tired of having to clean up gross litter. Jonathan's invention was "Shoe Robot". His product was a little robot that ties your shoes when they are untied. I cannot believe that technology is over! It all was so much fun!! :)

Today, we talked about elevator speeches. An elevator speech is a thirty second preview about what you do for a company or about your product. For example, you are an entrepreneur in an elevator and you see an investor, you would want to tell him about what you do in thirty seconds. We are working on these for future investors.

Today is the second day we have been on Minecraft. Our class is attempting to build a prototype of our invention. We have found it very difficult to build our inventions since most of them have round parts. We have been helping each other out to solve for these types of problems. Overall, Minecraft has been fun and I can't wait to do it again!
