We came up with LEGO Dacta topic because all of us LOVE using LEGO Dacta in Science class. It also gives us another opportunity to use the computer! We also felt it would appeal to kids of all ages. We thought it would be fun to share some of our favorite programs with you and you could send us yours!
I am the head Programming Consultant and Media Specialist. I wrote all the programming for the dinosaur, the elevator, and the car. After I wrote the programs I used troubleshooting to get the bugs out. My other jobs included filming and editing movies.
In my free time I like to sail, and swim in Lake Ontario. I also enjoy riding my bike and hanging out with my friends during the summer. But during the winter I go skiing. When I'm not out outside, I enjoy building different LEGO things or playing the computer.
I think that a successful ThinkQuest Junior team consists of cooperative participants, people who share ideas and kids that are focused in what they are doing.
I think the best part of being involved in ThinkQuest Junior 2000 was experiencing this with my friends.
For my final thoughts, I would like to say that this has been a fun experience and I would encourage kids to try it. If you do participate, good luck.
As the Research History Specialist I investigated the history behind LEGO Dacta. I thought it was so interesting that one man invented LEGOS! Along with the research I collected information from kids and teachers as to why they LOVE LEGO Dacta. I also helped with the web page design.
My hobbies include playing football, baseball, soccer, bike riding, rollerblading, basketball, snowboarding, skateboarding and television. I like pop, rap and r&b. My favorite groups are N'SYNC, Eminem, Tupac and Dr. Dre. In school I like physical education, social studies and recess.
What makes a successful ThinkQuest Junior Team? I think in order to have a successful ThinkQuest Junior Team you must have a group of participants willing to work hard and work well together.
The best part of being involved with ThinkQuest Junior was creating the web site and working with other kids my age.
My final thoughts are, if you want to participate in a ThinkQuest Jr. group it is a great idea. ThinkQuest Jr. was one of the best things I did in my three years in the Sodus Intermediate School.

During my free time I am devoted to playing soccer and basketball. I like shopping, watching T.V., hanging out with my friends and swimming. When I am at home I like to play games on the computer and go on the internet.
I think working together in a group makes a successful ThinkQuest Junior Team. Our team was pretty successful at doing this. We got a lot of work done. We met after school and 1 night a week until 5:00 p.m.
The best thing about ThinkQuest Junior was that we got to make a web site that actually has our faces on it and I never thought my face would be on the internet!
My final thoughts about ThinkQuest Junior are that I would like to be involved in ThinkQuest 2001 because I had fun and I thought it was interesting and I learned more about LEGO Dacta. If I am in ThinkQuest 2001 I would like to learn more about a different subject!
I am the resident Gears Expert. I developed different gear constructions. I also wrote, narrated, produced and edited the gear movies. The reason I am so knowledgeable about gears is because I have experimented with different constructions using LEGO Technic kits.
In my free time I enjoy building with regular LEGOS, riding my bike, rollerbladding, skiing, and playing with my two-year-old sister.
In my opinion a successful ThinkQuest Junior team is made up of hard working students and coaches that are focused and determined to get something done. It is also very important to have these hard working people communicate.
The best part of being involved in ThinkQuest Junior is the people I had to work with. All of them had a very good sense of humor and that made it more fun to be part of.

After all this, we would like to thank our coaches, Mrs. Rawden and Mrs. Smith, for helping us put the whole thing together. We would also like to thank Mr. Wood, Mr. Stone, and Mrs. Centro. They are important to thank because they gave us interviews and their opinion on LEGO Dacta.
