Wow we had such a great week! Plantation Women's Club received our thank you's and the whole team had fun at Thermal Concepts on Wednesday. Sydney didn't get a chance to start the calling sponsors seminar but she did finish the leadership position list, wrote her speech and did her PowerPoint for the school board meeting she was attending, sent out Mrs. Krauss thank you, and did the picture board. She also worked with Matt to put together her senior project, and drew it up on SolidWorks. Jasen, Kirsten, and Syd all worked together to get ready for the holiday parade. Jasen and Kirsten have there PowerPoints basically done. Jasen also worked on cleaning the solar car to make it parade ready. We also got the trailer and put the solar car on it to make sure it fit. Over all it was a great week, and SYD IS LEGAL!
