Nathan chose to study cars for his innovation project. He researched questions he had about cars. He was proud that he found 25 facts. He used his research to make a PowerPoint and shared with this with his classmates using Edmodo. Last Nathan built a model car out of Legos. Nathan learned that it is hard to find facts, but he also learned that he has a strength in building with Legos.
