About the Project/Acerca del proyecto: 
I am a reluctant reader of fiction, but I sure do love to build things. After I read "Can you Survive the Titanic? You Choose", I was inspired enough to use my off week from camps to do a self-directed STEM challenge of building a replica of the Titanic from home crafting supplies. I used Styrofoam, hot glue, popsicle sticks, plastic spoons, paper towel rolls, string,and aluminum foil. The book got me engaged to build and I used different parts of my brain. I hope to be an engineer or builder some day. Thanks for the inspiration! Sincerely, Brendan King
