Ahhh The Sweet Smell of Science Fair

Well its that time of year again and this year I am going to make a cubesat. A cubesat is a 10x10 cube-shaped satellite. I am going to attempt to figure out how to make a fully functional version of one. The only downside is that I will not be able to actually launch it into orbit because I do not have the funds for it.

Bryan awarded 1st place at District!

After coming in third at Hanalani, Bryan was honored to set up his science fair project at the district science fair on Monday. Tuesday he went to answer judges questions and he said it was packed! Wednesday Grandma and Auntie went to see his project and discovered he had placed FIRST in the junior research division! When Em got the call, she thought they were saying FOURTH, and she was happy about that! When they finally made it clear he received FIRST how much more exciting it was!

Bryan will now be part of the group representing the district at the State Science Fair, March 31st. He may receive awards at this level and of course, if he does very well, a possible trip to the mainland would be in store. That would be pretty amazing, because there are some incredible projects at the state level, so we'll just take this one step at a time, completely enjoying each step.

Congratulations Bryan!

Science Fair Display Upgrade

We upgraded Bry's science fair project with tracker like "chase
lights" on a map. He soldered the circuit together himself. It
really made the board stand out! He did well at the judging at the
District level. We'll find out tomorrow if he is going to the State
Science Fair.
