*NEW* assignment.

We’ve been working on your genius hour projects for the last few weeks, and now it’s time to report.

Write a blog post where you tell us how everything has been going. Consider the questions below as you write:

What has been going well?
What have you created thus far? (pictures would be cool!)
What steps have you taken to ensure success on your project?
How have you failed? (It’s ok to fail-in fact, you usually have to make a lot of mistakes before you get the results you want.)
What’s frustrating you?
What’s your plan for the next few weeks?
Who/What can help you be successful?
