Yes, but it was so long ago that I don't remember what I did for it.

These things are awful. Whom do they think does those projects - expecially at the elementary level. It is Mom and Dad trying to make it look like junior did the work. I've never seen one like the portrayal in "October Sky" for example.

I made an intercom in 2nd grade. After seeing some of the other projects with their professional finishing and talking with my mom, it was clear that lots of parents were involved. My dad was, too, but only because he didn't want me to use his soldering gun. I did all the assembly, and Dad did the soldering. He cooked one of my transistors, unfortunately, so only one of my units worked. That was the last time anyone soldered for me. A couple of years later, my mom taught me how.
