What is the 20% project

You may have heard of how Google let its employees pick anything they wanted to work on for 20% of their time.  Out of this experiment Google got Gmail and Google News.  My language arts teacher decided that she would try that out with my class. She has done it with a few of her previous classes before and she decided she would try it out with our class too.  So how it’s working with my school is everyone in 8th grade gets to pick a project they would like to do, anything reasonable and they are able to work on it throughout the whole year.  I have chosen to cook for my project.  We are required to keep a blog and to update it frequently to show our progress.  And at the end of the year everyone is going to present what their experience with their project was like, if they liked it, if they found it hard or frustrating.
