Kenya Flashlight

For our project in technology we had to put together flashlights for kids in Kenya to use. While we were putting our flashlight together we saw that Tinker Cad made the back wall too thin so some of the wall broke while we were putting the on and off button in. My favorite part of this project was finding out how my model of a flashlight turned out.

Magnetic Keychain

How did we find this idea?
My group and I came up with this idea by starting off small.  Then someone came up with the idea of a keychain!  We all loved that idea and another person came up with putting a magnet inside of it!  The person said that we could use magnetic letters to swap out common names for other people's unique names!
How did you design this product?
We designed this product by using Tinkercad.  Tinkercad is a 3D printing website that was very helpful to us.  I created our design on Tinkercad for our group.  It took us a couple of days to work on it but we accomplished it.  
What problems did you run into? 
When we printed our design it didn't go as planned.  The only wrong thing that happened was that the chain printed out wrong.  That was our biggest disappointment.  The rest of the keychain was perfectly fine. Our project went perfectly!
