Leo da Vinci
My project was the helical air screw created by Leonardo da Vinci. Along with all the research I found on why he built it, dimensions and materials, when, and where, I also learned how he impacted flight. His design was a screw that would run off of spin power. Unlike helicopters today, Leonardo’s was powered by man. Later inventors of the helicopter liked his idea of the spinning top that can cut through the air, but they did not think his machine had enough power. That is why other designers later used engines to create enough force. Without Leonardo’s initial idea no one would have known how to make a helicopter. The helical air screw was the foundation for helicopters to come.
Honestly I am not ready. I am taking this weekend to get going. I have my final plan for everything I just need to write it and create. Unfortunately my procrastination has struck again. But I do feel that I will be able to pull it all together and have a great project. All this time has given me a chance to think about all my answers to questions. Overall, I think I can do it!

At home I have 4 cats but they all have weird names and we usually come up with ryhms for their names and how they act individually. Some other information is I am currently a brown belt but my brother and I are going to test soon for our brown senior and we are going to try and make it to black belt.
