The study of neuroscience has always interested me. I was recently afforded the opportunity to view a deep brain stimulation surgery. It was an experience that I will never forget. I've known that I have wanted to go into the field of neurology since the fourth grade. When family and adults would ask me, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” my response would always be “a neurologist”. This answer would usually make people laugh, because most nine year olds haven’t decided yet on such a specific field of work. However, I was just always amazed about how the mind works, and how the body is controlled. Going to SLU Hospital and viewing the surgery was very cool and educational. Having an up close view of how much work , technology and time goes into planing and performing was an eye opening experience. I enjoyed the entire process and am glad I got to go. I now have a better appreciation for the doctors and nurses who dedicate their lives to making someone else's better.

Today 2-9-13 in the Design and Engineering we mad e our modles of the UWV (under water vichiles). We had to make the modle of the UWV out of straws, tape, ballons, and various other objects. The goal today was to make our modle, and put it into a tub of water and not have it sink, or float on top of the surface of the water but have it float in the middle. If it didn't work the first time then you took it out and revised your idea/plan.

My team finished our scale model and it works. We are also the first team in design engineering to do a triangle ROV. My brother and I are going to help out with other project teams that need help. Because I am in engineering at my school and i love to build and help others out with projects. My brother and i are always willing to help our peers with anything they need hep with

Today, we got in groups and herded worms. We used water (cold and room temp) and a light bulb to try and get them to the other side of the plexi-glass. Then all the groups came together and we raced our worms. My group won. To finish off the day we made proportioned maps if our tables. My scale was 3 inches to one box.

Today we herded earthworms. We found out that the earthworms reacted the most too cold water. Lastly we measured the table proportions. To finish off the day we had a group discussion over what we learned today.

On the 9th of September in February of the year 2013, the atmospheric science group dealt with worms and examined their reactions and behaviors when exposed to light, darkness, different temperatures of water and food items, along with soil. It was note resting to see how the little things reacted, squirming and such, but later we learned that earthworms average about 10 feet in length and the longest ever recorded was approximately 22 feet long, if I'm not mistaken. Afterwards there was work on creating to-scale sketches of tables in terms of measurement, conversion and ratio.
