Genius Hour Blog Posts

I have been keeping a weekly genius hour blog for my 6th grade science class this year.  I feel like it is very important for me to share my methods with others so that they can learn from my mistakes.  I also would love to hear feedback on how to improve my processes.  This page will list my genius hour blog posts in chronological order.

    I love this concept to the moon and back. Sadly, however, my school only owns ~40 laptops, and rarely is a class set readily available. Do you believe this sort of project is possible to complete without laptops? I know the purpose of the project is to explore a question.. I wonder if there’s any…other..way.. they…this..?? Heermmmm… scratches head.

    We have a computer lab and only get to go once a week, but I also have 6 computers in my room. I am going to make this work no matter what.
