Tuesday afternoon, July 7th
    Our presentor, Debbie Jensen, introduced us to all kinds of useful technology and its possible uses.  We worked in groups researching topics and finding resources online.  She brought in her TI calculator and related CBL (computer based lab) equipment used to measure parameters such as temperature, pH, and heart rate.

    We then tried our hand at aeromodeling with the Star glider.  Our object was to build one that would have the longest time in flight.  It was a great introduction to aviation.  We began to get a better understanding of how and why planes fly.
