All About Computers By Bryan
Do you want to know about computers? I will tell you about the invention of the computer.
First I will tell you where it was invented. It was invented in ancient Asia and it was in-
vented in 1832.The first computer was made by John Presper. The computer was made
for learning, playing and making games, reading and writing on discs, making movies and
computers are also used for making TV shows, cartoons and commercials. The computer
is important today so people can research, make stuff and to entertain yourself. Now I will
tell you the last thing I know about computers. The computer was first as big as a room
then the next computer was called DEC PDP-8. In 1984, something like our computers
was made. Then people started to make laptops. Computers have got smaller and easier
to use. I hope computers get much better to use in the future.

*Computers are going to be water
*Computers are going to be remote
*All web sites are going to be 3-D.

All About Airplanes by Jeffrey

I learned a few things about airplanes. They were invented by Wilbur
and Orville Wright on December 1903. They were invented to make
traveling easier over long distances. They have changed over time be-
cause in the past they were much harder to use and today they are
much bigger. In the past, the cockpit was not the same because the
cockpit has gotten bigger and more buttons have been made. They are
important today because they can help people get from one place to
another in short time. Did you know that airplanes have been around
for 106 years? I hope airplanes can look even better in the future.

Do you know what
planes will look like in
the future?
*They will be 10 times bigger.
*They will have 300 seats.
* They will have a small TV on every

An airplane can fly and go off ground with gravity. An airplane can take off with out
making any traffic. The plane in the past had a handle. Today the cockpit has a steer-
ing wheel. Airplanes have been around for 106 years. They are the fastest thing that
can get you from one place to another. Wilbur and Orville Wright invented it in De-
cember 1903. It was invented to make traveling easier over long distances.

All About Cameras By: Jenny
The invention that I’m learning about is the camera. And the people who started to
invent it were Joseph N. Niepce, Louis Daguerre and William Henry Fox. It was first
invented in Paris, France and it was invented in 1837. The purpose it was invented
is so people could take pictures of places and people and so you could remember
your memory and your important times of your life. When it was first invented, it
was first made out of wood and now it’s material is plastic or light metal. It has also
changed with how it looked. Old cameras were big and chunky and now they are
light and smaller. Cameras have upgraded a lot. This invention changed the entire
world!!! Today cameras remain a very important part of daily life.

Do You Know What Cameras
Will Be Like In The Future?
They will be solar powered,
they will be eco friendly, the
pictures will not be blurry, no

All About Trains by: Justin
I will tell you about how trains have changed over time. In the past, the first
person to make the train was a man named Thomas Newcomen. He in-
vented it in Paris, France in 1712. It was invented for people to travel from
place to place. The invention has changed over time by becoming faster
and newer and it uses less coal to make the environment cleaner. The in-
vention is important because people can travel to faraway places and move
freight. I wonder what trains will look like in the future?

Do you know what Trains will look like
in the future?

All About a Light Bulb by Suhaana
My invention is the Light Bulb and Thomas Alva Edison invented it in
1879,130 years ago. He invented it in Menlo Park, New Jersey. He had invented
it because before they had light bulbs they used to use candles and oil lamps
that used to burn down quickly, but the light bulb stayed for 13 hours. The
light bulb has changed over time and now you can get longer light bulbs that
stay for more than a year and give us a lot of light! The light bulb is impor-
tant to us today to give us light .Did you know electricity came the year the
light bulb was invented in 1879?

Do You Know...
what the light bulb will look
like in the future?

*smaller, as small as a ball
*no plug points

All About Cameras by Marsya
I will tell you about cameras. Joseph Niepce, Louis Daguerre, William Henry
Fox Talbot invented the camera. It was invented in Paris, France. It started in
1837. It was invented because people need to take pictures of beautiful views,
friends and new things and cameras help us see what the past looked like. The
invention changed over time by its easier to use, small, cheap and it has color.
But in the past they used heavy cameras that were harder to use, expensive,
large and had black and white pictures. The camera is important because when
you don’t have a camera you can’t take pictures of your friends or beautiful
views and cameras help us see what the past looked like.

So Thomas Edison fixed the light bulb on December 31, 1879 in New Jersey, USA.
They invented light bulbs because they wanted to use electricity to light the houses
instead of using candles. In 1879 they used Edison’s light bulb but it only lit for 40
hours. Then it was the carbon filament in 1900. Then it was a General Electric bulb
and then in 2000, it was Filips light bulb and it could be on for 60,000 hours. The
light bulb is important so we can work better and see better with electricity. I hope
light bulbs are better in the future.

All About Telephones By: Thayanita

An Invention from the Past
I am going to talk to you about telephones. The inventor of the tele-
phone is Alexander Graham Bell. The telephone was invented in the
United States. It was invented on February 14, 1876. The telephone
was invented so that people could talk to each other without having to
speak to each other in person. The telephone has changed by getting
smaller and smaller and it has changed by getting easier to use be-
cause you could call from a long distance and you could bring it every-
where. The telephone is important today because it still lets us talk to
each other without having to talk to each other in person. Do you know
more about telephones?

Do you know how the
telephone will be like in the
. Smaller
. Waterproof
. Cooler ringtones
. A chip to put in the ear
. Not only one color
. Glow in the dark

This is a telephone from the future.

All About Radios by Tai

My invention is a radio and Guillermo Marconi is the
guy who invented it. He invented it in England in
1901. The radio was invented because the radio waves
can carry messages of news, music, and sports. It has
changed because they used to use large wooden boxes
but now people use plastic to make radios. It has also
changed because radios used to have glass containers
called vacuum tubes. Then they used transistors. Now
they use chips to store information. Radios rock!

Do you no what radios will
look like in the future?
*we could make it portable.
*we could make it
*we could make it solar
*and it can get all the radio
waves in the world.
It mite look like this: 2 antennas and 3 knobs
and one knob controls what type of music
that you want and another knob controls the
type of language you want and the third knob
controls which type of radio sound you want.

All About Airplanes by Camila
My invention is airplanes. The people who invented it were Wilber and Orville
Wright. It was invented in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina in 1903. It was invented so
people can ride on it to go to different countries. Airplanes moved slow in the past.
Now they move fast. Before, one or two people can ride on it but now like 500 peo-
ple can ride on it. Planes are important so people can get from place to place.

This is what I think airplanes will look like in the future.

All About Computers by Lucas
My invention is a Computer. The names of people who are Steve Jobs and Stephen.
It was invented in England in the late 1970s. It was invented
to calculate different thinks. It has changed over time. First
they were made from glass parts then they were made from
transistors then microchips. Computers are important to-
day because it has more games, internet, E-mail, Skype, to
learn, play, and talk to people all over the world.

This is what I think airplanes will look like in the future.

All About Airplanes by Gere

I am studying Airplanes. Today I will tell you who in-
vented the first airplane. Orville and Wilbur Wright
invented the airplanes. The airplanes were invented in
North Carolina. The airplanes were invented in 1903.
It was invented to make our life easier. People built
airplanes to travel from place to place. The airplanes
are now better because it has changed over time so
more people can use it faster and farther.
