10/20/15 Construction Crew Update

Currently, the construction team is working on the maze. Trent Fox and Mr. Roth were working on cutting out the shapes for people to go through the maze. "Every day we work on something new" Chloe Burns told me. "Everyone has a different job." The construction group is working on the maze on the second floor of our building, where they have more space to work. The members all work together in order to get it done! Mr. Roth certainly does a great job at getting everyone working hard!

Today the data group was doing many different activities. Anni Anglim was painting our TechFit puzzle for our game while Tanner West and Cloe Middleborn were collecting data on how may steps everyone took today based on their pedometers. Also, Riley Shafer, Kameron Miller, and Kendell Johnston were searching for games to play for Friday. Cloe Middleborn told me she thinks "TechFit is very fun, interesting, and there are a lot of good exercises we do."
