his science project, cool!

got the following from the teacher's weekly update about what the kids learned at school this week:


Later on in the week, students demonstrated their understanding of insulators by designing their own thermos. They had to explain what materials they would use for the inside and outside containers and for the insulators. Students really enjoyed designing that they insisted on making a real thermos at home for a project. This science project is due on Wednesday, February 7th. Students are allowed to bring their thermos to school for sharing starting Monday. If you need to learn how to make a thermos with your child, please watch this Thermos Science Project.

so he showed us his design on the worksheet
i asked him to pick and choose the materials he needed based on his design
we came home to put things into motion

he kept saying to me
"no mami, you don't understand my design"
which is absolutely true
i didn't know what he was trying to do as he was asking me to help him use the cutter
to cut the bottle...

so i had my hands off
and watched him 

he surely did look like he knew exactly what he wanted and what he was doing

and wow!

we are amazed with the end product!!

the cutting
the sizing
everything was just right!

well done with your very first own design!!!
