    hey tiff,

      Hi Kate,
      I think you’re a little ahead of yourself. No invention stuff is due on Thursday. Your Design Plan is due NEXT Thursday (and it’s just a plan, not the actual invention). If you’ve started building, that’s great! The Inventor’s logs should just be started. I will ask to see at least 4 Logs when your rough draft is due.
