Good question! Word order can be quite tricky in German., especially when you have several complements in a sentence.
Here the difference in the position of "mit einem Freund" comes from the other complements in each sentence.
In the first example, "mit einem Freund" goes right after the verb because this type of complement tends to go BEFORE place indications like "ins Museum" which usually go after all other complements in German.
On the contrary in the second example "mit einem Freund" goes AFTER the complement "ein Projekt" because it is a Direct Object, and direct objects like this usually go right after the verb (before all other complements).
As I said, word order rules are a bit tricky, so we introduce them little by little in the first levels, so you get a sense of it progressively, then we work on it more in detail throughout level 4, so keep it up and you'll see how it all starts to click soon.
Also, keep in mind that these rules are no absolutes, and it's alwmost always possible to change the order of words in German to emphasize one thing or another...
Good luck for the rest of the level!
