|Aloha! My name is Kristen. I live in Hawai`i. One thing that I like about living in Hawai`i is that it isn't very cold like Lake Tahoe and it's not very hot like California. My favorite part about being in ThinkQuest Jr. was drawing pictures for my summaries on our webpages. The hardest thing to do in ThinkQuest Jr. was to keep on fixing all the clay figures because they fell apart a lot. Participating in ThinkQuest Jr. was a good life experience. I hope that you liked our page and will tell others to check it out!|
|My name is Mason. I'm 11 years old, and I like to play basketball and I made the principals list. The thing I like about this project was the sound because we spent a lot of time and effort and we were successful. The least I liked about this project was when we had to make the clay. From this project I learned how to make clay animation and it was very fun. On my free time, I spend my time wisely doing stuff with my friends and playing paintball at Nimitz and Bellows. I can't believe we finished this because it took a lot of patience. I would like to thank the cast, Mrs.Higa and Ms.Kubota, for coming in and using their time to come in and finish this journey to success. Everyone was awesome.|
|Hi! My name is Larry. I like food, sleeping, and other stuff. My favorite foods are pizza, spam musubi, and french fries. I dislike carrots, spinach, and all other vegetables. My hobbies are playing video games, sleeping, and being lazy. I also like to go breakdancing lessons and soccer. What is fun about ThinkQuest is we had to draw and make things out of clay. What I dislike is making enough time for ThinkQuest and sports.|
|Aloha, my name is Melana. I am in the 5th grade and go to school on `Oahu. My favorite color is green and navy blue. I love sushi and in my free time play video games. My favorite sport is football. I go to all the games and have fun. What I liked about this project was making these web pages and stories about the characters. I disliked when the clay figures fell apart and we had to put them back together before they fell apart again. This project was exciting and challenging and we had a very fun time. I learned how to do a lot of new things on the computer.|
|My name is Natsumi. I go to school in Hawai`i. I am in the 5th grade. My favorite subject is math. My favorite food is Italian food, spaghetti, and chicken and beef. What I liked about this project was the sound. I liked the sound because at the end I can see all the hard work we put in the clay animation and movie and see how it turned out. What I disliked was that the clay figures were falling apart when we were making the movie. And so we had to fix them.|
Hello my name Is Ryan and I'm one of the boys on the ThinkQuest Junior Team. I'm in the sixth grade and enjoy playing baseball,
paintball and listening to rock music. I had a fun time doing this
project, and my favorite part was the clay moving to make our movie.
I liked it because we tried to make it look very realistic, even though
it takes time. What I really hated was finding info about myths an
legends. Why? It's because using the internet is not one of my strongest
skills. I would like to thank my fellow teammates for helping us to
complete this project even when it seemed so hard. I especially would
like to thank our coaches, Mrs. Higa, and Ms. Kubota for their time
to help us make this website successful. If it wasn't for them, we
would be lost. I really enjoyed this journey. I just hope we win,
hooray we're done.
I am so proud of our team. They were amazing! Most of them had little experience with Hyperstudio, NONE of them knew Flash, only ONE had every made a simple web page before. They learned how to use Dreamweaver, Hyperstudio, Flash, Quicktime Pro, BTV, iPhoto, iMovie, AND make their own backgrounds and images for their web pages. We, as coaches, had to push and motivate with pizza on the Saturdays we came in to work and almost EVERY day after school since October.
I can't believe we have actually finished this project! I thought it would never get done, especially when our Hyperstudio plugins wouldn't work, and we had to learn how to use Flash. It's a good thing the kids are really good at figuring these things out because I probably was of no help to them in this department. I'm amazed at how much they have learned and completed in such a short amount of time. They were so dedicated, especially at the end, and were determined to finish this project no matter what! I look forward to getting the opportunity to do another ThinkQuest project once we recuperate and get some relaxation. Hopefully we will win a trip to San Francisco and will get some relaxation there. =) Ha, ha, ha!
