This summer my cousins and I picked a project from the book “Smithsonian Maker Lab Outdoors” that we could make together.

There were many fun projects to pick from, like building a butterfly feeder from a paper cup, a sponge and orange juice. With a cardboard box, a plastic bag and a couple of other things, you can build a cool air cannon that forces enough air out to knock things down. Also, it created an air ring, called a vortex.

 Have you wondered what it’s like to swim with dolphins? Well, I will tell you what it’s like.

My Girl Scout troop and I were waiting to go on a trip to Odysea Aquarium and Dolphinaris for a long time! We had to sell a lot of cookies to earn the money for this trip and finally the day came and we headed to Scottsdale. We were super excited even though it was a long ride to the aquarium. I like to look at the shape of the clouds to pass the time.
