*Thankful for my new friends working with me on this project! The picture on the right shows our program for the lights to come on.

4. I played with 3D printing software - Tynkercad and watched 3D printers in action.




















5. I helped a friend create a potato bag and others understand what a potato bag is :)
















Other learning--
I found that I chose the first projects based on comfort. Either someone I knew was involved or it was easy to join in.

I turned away from some projects due to lack of a "buddy". Thankful for those who pulled me in to the final group project of the Hummingbird. There were many that were best done with others (by design). 

I need to continue to push myself out of my shyness and comfort zone. Attending alone doesn't mean that I have to be alone. Just because someone doesn't invite you into their "group", doesn't mean that you can't invite yourself (ask if you could join).
