Genius Hour Officially Week 12

Date: 4-28-17
What I did today:
       Today I spent the entire period memorizing and working on my presentation for the last week of Genius Hour. I have fallen in love with quantum mechanics, and I'm so glad I chose this topic. I still have a little bit of work to do on perfecting this, but I think I'm almost done!

Genius Hour Official Week 11

Date: 4-18-17
What I did today:
Today, I was looking for a way to make explaining my project to the class much simpler and understandable, due to the fact that quantum mechanics is beyond impossible to cover in only a few short minutes. I watched this video which gave me a few ideas and inspired me to give my presentation in an easier way. I'm super excited to share my presentation with the class, I hope it works out the way I want to, for I have been working extremely hard on this. Quantum mechanics is really hard to take on, but definitely worth it.

Genius Hour Official Week 10

Today's date: 4-7-17
What I did today:
Today I practiced my presentation a little bit. Since I am still under 5 minutes, I am going to add a bit more. Quantum mechanics is an extremely broad topic, so it's hard to only pick a couple of things to add.

Genius Hour Official Week 9

Today's date: 3-31-17
What I did today:
Today I practiced my presentation with the people at my table, which allowed me to realize that I have a bit more work to do. Since quantum mechanics is a very broad topic, I really have to start focusing in on a few different theories and ideas for my presentation. Otherwise, I would definitely not make it in the 5 minute time limit. Other than that, my research is almost done and my project has been going smoothly.

Genius Hour Official Week 8

Date: 3-24-17
What I did today:
During today's session, I actually got to have my conference and checked up with Ms. Miller about my project. With the rest of my time, I used this website as well as this website to kind of check up on my research. I am super excited to continue my project on my journey to try to understand the amazing world of quantum mechanics!

Today's date: 3-17-16
What I did today:
Today I worked on my actual presentation and powerpoint. I also worked on the theory of superposition. This theory is really interesting and talks about multiple quantum theories.

Genius Hour Official Week 6

Date: 3/10/17
What I did today:
Today I used this website to learn about a new breakthrough discovery on quantum mechanics based on atoms and mathematics. Then I began to work on my presentation and started to organize it all. Finally I decided to research a bit more on the history of quantum mechanics.
