    HW:  Post your RECAP video by Friday, 9/21. To do this, follow the directions below:

    1. Go to the website http://app.letsrecap.com
    2.  Type in the JOIN PIN: hzgkrkn
    3.  Add your FIRST and LAST name
    4. Post your video under the correct teacher and class period.  Remember that you can only submit one time.  If you are not happy, choose to re-record.  
          TIPS for creating a great video:
    • Use the script we created in class to talk.  Make sure to follow ALL the guidelines in Journal # 4.
    • Show your wire critter on camera the whole time. Try to show the design from different angles so the viewer can see that it does not break the surface tension.
    • Practice and time yourself before you are on camera.  You only have 60 seconds!
    • When all else fails, use science to explain.
