  1. Making Sandwiches

    For the field trip we went on a little while ago, I was one of the people who helped out with making the food. During the process, I took a couple photos to post here.

    The fridge was really full by the end of it.


  2. ICTX – Making the Handle

    unnamedThis picture shows the process of wrapping the string, which is very intricate. You tape the handle first for addd friction. Once you have the pattern, you attach it at the end with tape and wrap it in a spiral like you would normally to create a grip.

    This shows how it looks with the tape overtop.

    If you can notice where it switches, the very middle has the string doubled for extra grip and to make it easier to find the point at which it is perfectly balanced.


  3. Cutting and Peeling an Apple

    For Foods we were tasked with cutting and peeling an apple with a paring knife. I was pretty scared because last time I cut an apple did this it didn’t end very well but it went a lot better this time! The process is split into three time lapse videos because my phone ran out of storage space. I might try to edit them together later, but they mostly split up the process. The first is mostly cutting, with a little peeling. The next one is all peeling, and in the third I try something a little different to help and it comes out a lot cleaner. The apple was really bruised and the entire thing went less than ideal, but I think for my second try at cutting and first at peeling I don’t think it went too bad.

  4. ICTX Update #3

    As you can see, the trident has been wrapped in hockey tape for extra grip. The spiral is downwards for most of it but for the upper section it spirals upwards, so it is easier for me to remember which side is the top. (It doesn’t really matter, but eventually there will be more differences.)
