Disney's Cars 3 Road to the Races made a pitstop in Phoenix to delight a crowd of families at Tempe Marketplace.
Ever since I was a little girl I have dreamed of becoming a firefighter. My dad has been a firefighter with the Phoenix Fire Department for almost 15 years. He loves his job, and I always have a great time whenever I come to visit him at the station.
Becoming a firefighter is a long process. To get hired, you need to pass a physical, oral and written exam. To pass the physical you need to be in great shape. You also need to become an EMT (Emergency Medical Technician). Even though college isn’t required, it is very helpful.
Ever since I can remember, I have dreamed of becoming a barrel racer. I have loved horses all of my life. I got my first horse when I was 2 and I absolutely loved him.
Becoming a barrel racer takes a lot of training. You have to have a trainer and a fast and well behaved horse. It takes a long time to find the right horse. If you are just a beginner rider you don’t want a crazy horse. You will definitely want one that is well behaved. Taking care of a horse takes a lot of time and dedication.
Dr. Hank Hurrass visited Ridgeline Academy to teach summer school students about the Hellcat coil that just became a part of the Guinness Book of World Records. We learned that it took him a year to build the Hellcat coil, and he didn't know whether it would even work. The coil is not a new invention, in fact, it has been around for over a century, one of the many novel creations of inventor and electrical engineer Nikola Tesla, who also developed radio and radar waves, fluorescent lights and the AC distribution system used in our homes today.
College football is starting soon! For 2015-16, the National Championship Game was held in Phoenix. Earlier this year I took a trip with my mom, dad and brother, Chase, to the Phoenix Convention Center to be a part of Playoff Fan Central. The Playoff Fan Central is a multi-day fan festival that gives lots of kids an opportunity to experience the College Football Playoff National Championship. There were bands, cheerleaders, interactive photo booths and sports games. My brother and I got to play at different games.
