He named his bomber The Enola Gay named after his mother. He was ordered to bomb Hiroshima with the 9,000 pound atom bomb and at 8:15 AM that is exactly what he did.

10: What I Learned | I-Search, I-Search, I-Search. I learned a lot about the I-Search process like how to research things because now I know what sites can help me with my topics. I learned about media presentation and how to use something other than powerpoint! It's called mixbook. Mixbook is really cool because you can upload your own backgrounds, photos, and stickers for your pages. It's also like a book where you can actually flip the pages and i think that's really cool. Last, I'm ready for any writing project because now i fully think i can actually write about information and make sense! I-Search has helped me greatly and i am ready for any research project that comes my way.
