Genius Hour-2/28/17

The last genius hour was today. I think I'm about done with my project. I just have to add about 1-2 more slides about some interesting facts and then I will start rehearsing. Today I did more research on other roller coasters and government. Thank you

Today at Genius Hour I started to practice my slides in my head. I need to add a couple more to make it a little longer and I'm thinking about adding a video at the end. Today I also found more research about some of the rides. Thank you

Genius Hour-

Today in genius hour I learned more about the government research for my project. I learned that magic mountain has to pay the government for the land, and then magic mountain uses that land to build the roller coasters on. Next I learned that OSHA only protects the employees at magic mountain and not the people. I'm still going to do more research to see if I can find better government research. Thank you.

Genius Hour-3/24/17

Today I learned about some of the cool water rides at magic mountain. Tidal wave is a fast, water ride with an environmental theme with palm trees everywhere. It is a very good roller coaster to go on if its a hot day. My presentation right now is about two minutes so I have to get more information to reach the time limit. Thank you.

Genius Hour-3/17/17

Today I researched about the incidents that happened at magic mountain. Unfortunately there has been a bunch of incidents at magic mountain. In 1978 a 20 year old died after falling out of colossus. A lot of people have died on colossus but luckily they remade the ride. Since they remade it, there has been no incidents. Now I'm going to start my twelve slide. Thank you!
