paper tower challenge
The paper tower challenge is a challenge to see who can make the largest tower out of only paper and tape. Mr. Goldstein gave us an 8.5 X 11 piece of paper, 12” of tape and scissors. The rules were that you couldn’t have the scissors attached to the structure, the tower had to be connected to the table and you only had 20 minutes.
We found the time limit of time challenging. We also found the lack of materials challenging. When our tower started to fall down we didn’t have a lot of time to fix it so it was leaning over when we measured it.
Our tower ended up being 23 ½ inches tall. To make it taller we could of cut the tape long ways so we had to use. We could of also cut the paper differently.
We worked well as a team because we both shared our ideas and then found a way to make the tower. We could of worked better by putting more ideas out there. We learned that sometimes working as a team is hard but its better to have 4 or 6 hands then only 2. We learned that trying to solve a problem might be harder than it looks or seems

My name is sepand z. and I created the micro zap with my group. The group was Brandon, Corey, Bryan, Carlos and I. we were all brainstorming while thinking about the invention, and then Bryan thought about the micro zap.
The micro zap is basically a box that has a huge zap button on side of the box. It’s all black and the zap button is purple. We painted it very good and choice the best colors possible.
It works by writing what you want on a piece of paper what you want to eat, then you open the micro zap and place the piece of paper in the micro zap, you then press zap and whatever you wrote on the piece of paper would appear right before your eyes.
The difficulties of the project was waiting for the paint to dry and videotaping the project. While videotaping the project we had to retake shots over and over again till we finally got the right shot.
The poster we made was very nice it was very colorful it had a picture of a hamburger that I made. It was like a McDonald’s big mac but better. I think it would taste good if it was real.
The micro zap was successful and the project was fine till we left it outside and some kids broke it. But overall we enjoyed working with everyone and had fun.
Salesman: Well look no further! Introducing the Micro-Zap! The micro-zap is a fast way to get your food. Here is how it works. You write what you want on a piece of paper and stick it into the micro-zap. Then, click the ZAP button and its there!
Dwyane: I got my micro-zap and I love it!
Albert: Oh me too! It is amazing!
Joe: Well where can I get one?
Salesman: I happen to have one with me now. Here you go. *gives Joe the micro-zap*
*Shows how Microzap is used*
Joe: Whoa thanks!
Dwyane: The MircroZap is only 9,875 dollars!

My group is creating a device called Tele Reality. We have all agreed that this is a very good idea. We are currently working on the video. Me, Liudvikas, and Steven created a really cool poster. We already created a script. So now we are rehearsing the script.
My invention, Tele Reality, can take you into your TV show or movies. It works by making your DNA cells into microscopic size, and at supersonic speed, and into the show. It is on a 64“ inch screen. You will get a remote with a button that will take you into the show. You will also get a TV guide that tells you all the TV shows.
Over 90 percent of people who bought this product said that it works perfectly! If people tell you it stinks, they are lying! It’s defiantly worth your time and money. We have spent all of our time to perfect it. If you don’t like it, we will give your money back guarantied!
For only 1999.99, you can buy this product. Plus shipping and handling and tax. I hope you enjoy this product as much as I did. I, president Obama’s son, sure did.
I, president Obama’s son, approve this message

Our invention was the “T-Bolt”. The T-Bolt is a watch that can teleport any object from your house to your current location. How, you ask? Well first you would have to scan the object by pressing and holding the “T” button on the watch. When you do that, a beam should come out of the watch. When the beam comes out, you have to scan the objects you want. The T-Bolt has no limit! You can scan endless object to your watch. Then, when you need the object, you simply press the “T” Button and type in what you need. After you type it in, the object will come out of the other side. It’s that easy!
Jack and I came up with the idea by first brainstorming for any eligible objects around the room. When we finally decided to use my watch, we started making thumbnail sketches for our poster. We drew out examples of what we would draw in our poster. When we finished, with our ideas, we started on our poster. We first started of by drawing the title of our invention on our poster. Me and jack decided that our strategy was “I draw, and he colors.” So I drew the watch and he colored it. When we finished the watch, we started writing a description of the T-Bolt that tells what it does, why you should buy it, and how much it costs.
Next, Jack and I wrote a script for our video that we were going to shoot. Our script was about our characters speaking of the T-Bolt and the problem one of the characters was facing, which was forgetting his wallet. After we finished the script, we started on the storyboard. The storyboard was going to be what was happening in our video. When we shot the video, we faced a lot of problems, like saying our parts wrong. What we did differently was practice a little them shot the video.
What we learned was how to do so many things on the computer, like how to edit the video in Windows Moviemaker. We also had a lot of fun.

My invention is Morphy. Morphy is a shape shifting gum that makes you grow. We have had a great experience making an invention with my group. We have ran into many problems with our group, but we have been able to work then out and make a great invention with a wonderful video and other requirements that were needed for this project. We encountered problems about the size of our group not being large enough for our video, but Shelby was glad and happy to assist us in our group and has been a great addition to our group. She helped with the planning of the video, finding props, and setting up the props in the video location while I shot the video and Mahmoud, Brooklyn, and Josias were the characters in our video. Shelby has been helping with the additional things needed for the blog page, such as, reports and other writing, since she is the best writer in our group, paint, and helping with the video editing. Anyway we have Josias and Brooklyn in our video, they are not actually in our group. Our group is made up of, Mahmoud, Shelby, and me, we have all been trying to help out on what we think we do best in technology and can help the group get the best grade on using our best abilities. I am very sorry my essay is late. I was helping the rest of my group with our project, editing the video, and helping Shelby learn about the different programs since she was not in our class for the 3rd 9 weeks. I hope I can still get the grade I deserve on this essay and I won’t turn in any more late work. I will try my hardest in the rest of your class, and I will listen to you and your input on our group’s project and blog page. Aside all the problems the experience and the knowledge and friendships I have made will stick with me forever and thank you for all your help this year. I should have respected you for your knowledge, input, and your desire to help educate children about the technology we will be using in our life time. You are truly an amazing teacher and educator. Thank you for educating me on the technology I will use tomorrow and throughout my life time. I have learned in your class about technology, respect, how to be a good friend, and how to respect people of all age groups and be considerate. Thank you for being so harsh on me this year and inspiring me to do better, pushing me to do better and making me want to do better for myself and help others around me. I hope I have you again next year. I will always remember you for what I have walked away knowing in your class and you for everything you have taught me, and I have learned from your great wisdom and your knowledge I have learned from you.
Morphy is not an average piece of chewing gum. When you chew it, it will make you taller to ride amusement park rides, be as tall as your girlfriend, and fit in with everybody else’s height. You can get Morphy in Key Lime Pie, different types of mint, such as, sweet mint, winter mint, and mint chocolate chip. The Morphy exclusive flavor is, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.
The Morphy will make you grow to ride rides, be as tall as your girlfriend, and as tall as other kids at your school, so you will fit in at school. It is also the only gum made in Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.
FIELD OF THE INVENTION
Morphy was invented to make you taller for rides, kissing your girlfriend, and so you fit in at school, and don’t get picked on because if your height.
Morphy was created to make people who are “fun sized” able to ride amusement park rides, make guys as tall as their girlfriends, and kids as tall as the average height at their school, so they don’t get picked on. Anyway, I am taller than the other two people in my group. They can now be as tall as their girlfriends, be able to ride amusement park rides, and be the average height at Omni Middle School.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
The picture for our patent application is of a package of Morphy (fig. 1) and a piece of what Morphy looks like (fig. 2). Also, we have included a chart with prices and flavor options, (fig. 3.)
DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
The only thing you can compare Morphy to is winning the lottery. That is the only thing nearly as cool as Morphy Chewing Gum. The most impotant thing to remember about Morphy is that you won’t start growing for about 5 minutes after chewing begans. The creators of Morphy suggest that you chew Morphy in private so you don’t just start getting considerably taller. The few known side effects are dizziness, fire feeling, chest burning, and possibly death. The Morphy colors are purple, green, and yellow. Health facts and other information are on the package of Morphy and at www.morphyaddicts.com. You can purchase Morphy at the local supermarket, vending machine, gas station, ect.

Our team invention is called Messi 10s. The Messi 10s are soccer cleats, not just any soccer cleats, cleats that make you play like Messi (Messi is currently the best soccer player in the world. We made the price 410 dollars because they make you play soccer really good.
In the beginning we didn’t know what to do but then since we are all soccer players we decided to do something about soccer. When we came up with the color, design, and brand of the Messi 10s we had to think how we were going to make the poster. It started with a rough draft on a small piece of paper. It had MESSI 10S on the top, the price, the shoes in the middle, a kid playing soccer wearing the cleats, and a sentence saying “makes you play like Messi”.
When we finished the poster we had to make an electronic version of our poster. It was hard to draw the cleat with the mouse, but we did it. All of it was the same.
After that everybody had to make a video showing your product doing what it does, but before that you had to make a script. The script for us was easy because we already knew what we were going to do. The hard part was to do all of the tricks we planned. Our video was good and our teacher liked it.
