Friday and today, we worked on flyers and posters for spirit night tomorrow. We hope a lot of people show up for it. We divided into cutting hand outs and poster makers, while the leaders worked on great ideas for popsicle and a snack cart for after school. Nathan and Marsden are working on the web site.
Today, we are deciding are pushers. Our pushers are Connor and JB. We had a best out of 2 tournament, you could call it. The drivers will have a race to decide the other drivers next week. The leaders are going to present in a faculty meeting.
We are driving the car today! First, we will have to adjust the alignment of our car for the drivers' safety. After we get that figured out and ready to go, we will drive the car. On another note, we are still making adjustments to our website. We are adding in information about our team, so you can know them as people, and not just participants of a team. Hopefully, we hope you enjoy the update of our website and enjoy getting to know the team.
Today's the day! We are finally presenting our presentation to our principal, Mrs. Bardwell. We will discuss what we need the funds for, where and how we can get the funds, and ideas from the team for sponsorship. We are hoping for her to allow us to use social media to broaden our search of sponsors. A lot of people use social media these days and we think it would be an brilliant idea. We are still editing the website and it's going to be great, not just for us, but the viewers and sponsors. We hope for the best for our website, car, and power point.
Today, we are in the shop. We had planned to practice driving on the track today, but it had started to rain. We are working on our back flap and other adjustments to our car. We still have not presented our power point to Mrs. Bardwell, but look forward to doing that soon. We are out on the hunt for sponsors and ideas for raising money for car adjustments. We still are making changes to our website and making it look more professional to reflect our team and car.
Yesterday didn't go as planned, Mrs. Bardwell lost track of the time and we spent most of the day rehearsing the power point. Today two people from the build team went down to the shop for the hood measurements, and we picked a treasurer to look after the finances. We are also working on making some major improvements to the website. We are going to have a roster on the website that says a little about everyone on the team. We hope you're enjoying the new and improved website as much as we are!!!!
We are about to present to Mrs Bardwell, we hope it will go well and she will agree with are ideas. We have been practicing since last Tuesday, and feel confident that . The leaders are thinking about changing the throttle because its uncomfortable for the drivers. We are looking into the other teams to practice against. We are changing the website, and picking a third person to drive and push. See you tomorrow!
Today, we are working on the model car and the sponsor letters. The car is fully charged and ready to go on a test run. We already have most of our crew for the pit. We are also thinking about business cards from VistaPrint and creating a pamphlet for the sponsors.
There was a lock-down on Friday. Nothing happened and we are all okay! Today, we are working on the measurements for the hood and charging the batteries. The team is working on hood models for the car while the outreach team is still looking for sponsors.
Today, we are still getting sponsors and measurements for the back flap to cover the batteries. We are also working on models for the nose cone. We are thinking of buying Chick-Fil-A biscuits for the school and upgrading our website. The power point is ready and we are as well. We can't wait to present to Mrs. Bardwell. Everything is coming along nicely for out team! Hope you enjoyed today's blog.
