  1. I absolutely love your video, Cam!

    I especially like how you start with a tribute to your Great Grandfather. You spoke so clearly and your passion for the subject came firing through. It was awesome how you used your model tank, and combined it with images from your book. I did not know that a computer aims and fires the gun.

    Thank you for such an inspiring job in your first Genius Hour sharing!

  3. Thank you for your video on tanks Cameron. I didn't know that the first tank was called a Mark 1. There used to be a car called a Mark 1 Zephyr, I wondered whether this was a reference to the name of the first ever tank. Keep up the fantastic work Cam.

    1. Thank you Mrs Miller. I googled Mark 1 Zephyr. They look like funny cars. I wonder if they are named after the mark 1 tank.

  4. Thanks Cameron for sharing your knowledge and interest with us. I always think tanks are spacious inside but by the look of that soldier inside the tank, it is very snug indeed!

  5. Cameron I love the way you have presented this - using your clear voice and speaking slowly so we could hear every word - well done. I have a clip on a dvd where a historian is describing the conditions in the mark one tank for the soldiers - I must show it to you next time I come to visit, I think you would be interested.
