Today in IT we watched a video on Mike Rowe about following your passion. We were told to write this essay on it.
Mike talked about how when people try to just follow their passion they miss out on so many opportunities. Or sometimes you just might not have the skill set for your passion.
After watching that video we watched a reply VLog byn David Patreon. David disagreed on what Mike had said, saying that it is a bad idea to not follow your passion. When trying to follow a passion, but find out you don't have the right skills for it, work harder to gain those skills. If you can't do that, change you passion. Find other things and let you passion evolve.
I think that both people are right. You should follow your passion but you shouldn't let it control your life. Don't let it control your life but instead work hard for it. If you can't then try to change your passion.
A VLog is a video about someone's life or opinion.

Today we watched videos on different types of engineers and what they do.
A design engineer is someone who tries to come up with an idea to make something.
An acoustic engineer is someone who makes something sound more quiet and more soothing.
A research engineer researches problems for objects and comes up with ideas on how to fix them.
An electronics engineer figures out how to make circuit boards work and fit.
A materials engineer understands how materials work to fit together in a product.
An aerodynamics engineer finds out how to make the most airflow as easy as it can in products.               
A mechanical engineer designs and tests products to make them work.
If I had to be one I would choose an acoustic engineer.

Class 26

Today Mr. Kelley taught us that additive printing is adding material to make something and subtractive printing is taking away material to make something. He also explained the x, y, and z axis. The x is side to side, y is up and down, and z is back and forth. He also taught us what reverse engineering is. Reverse engineering is the process of taking something apart and finding out how it works to make it better.
 I was also able to have more time to work on my house. I think that I am really close to finishing my house. Next class I will be able to finish my fidget spinner for my 3d project. Here is what I have for my house.

Class 7 Essay and Sketchup

Technology is in my opinion, inherently good. It has been growing and becoming better by the day and is helping everyone in everything they do.
     First, it provides new jobs for everyone. Because of technology there are jobs such as and I.T. guy.
     Second, technology also makes jobs easier. Things like ordering food or buying tickets to an event can be done through technology and can make everything easier.
      And lastly, technology can be used for enjoyment. We have phones, laptops, video games and all kinds of other things that we like to use for fun.
     For these reasons, I think that technology is inherently good because they provide jobs, make jobs easier, and are used for enjoyment.
