Adam S.'s Eagle Project
By Tyler K.
April 13, 2009

On Monday, April 6th, Adam S. was focusing on doing the most important part of his Eagle Scout project.  With the help of John L., Michael P., Jake S., and myself, Adam was starting to make bird houses.  For Adam's project, he is making bird houses for wildlife management areas.  In the next few paragraphs, I will explain what happened at that meeting, what went well and what did not go well, and what Adam plans on doing to improve what went wrong on April 6th.  Adam arrived at the troop meeting with plenty of wood, a screwdriver, and two hammers.  Right away we began having problems figuring out how the birdhouses were supposed to be made.  It took us quite a while to figure that out, and then we were able to start making the birdhouses.  Things went well for quite a while, and we found out that the wood we had was not going to make square birdhouses, but Adam said it was okay anyway.  One problem that arose was that when we would pound the nails into the wood, the wood began to splinter.  We were able to make four complete birdhouses by the end of the meeting.  Adam was not satisfied by the number that we were able to make, but said that it was a start.  I asked Adam what he would do differently next time we worked together, and he said that he would make sure that he is making the birdhouses right, he would find better quality wood, and review with each person helping him what their task is.  He also said that for the remainder of the project he would like to have better laid out plans and would make sure that the work each person is doing is quality.
