What will be easy? I think it will be easy to paint the sculpture when done
What will be challenging? Making a strong structure will be hard for me because this is my first time
What ideas do you have? I want to have a big rock that will have a mini waterfall coming down into the bigger river, I also will have the tree trunk coming up into the surface and have many rock that looks like spikes at the bottom
What is your chosen theme?Why? I chose cave because I really like exploring them even though it can be dangerous and scary, I've been traveling to about 24 different caves in my life
Why do we use the design process not just take our first idea? Going with your first idea would be rough because you will have to think about and problem that will interfere with the whole designs
What are you looking forward to about this task? I am looking forward to making the tree trunk because it is pretty challenging and I like to learn more about how to make a tree trunk
Briefly explain what you think about your chair. I think that my chair is pretty creative the way I am adding many types of caves together to create a grand cave that hand all the caves in it.



Should Parents Have a Say In How Their Teens Use Social Media?

Many parents may be concerned about their children’s use of social media due to the horrifying risk of their address being leaked, and might affect their living conditions. Teens often leave their privacy settings untouched due to their lack of paying attention. Teens may have skipped reading the “Terms and Agreements” because it is long and they always while just click accept no matter what, this can lead to child raping to because their address has been revealed to the public. As a result, parents should check their children profile before letting them create an account.

In our eco dome project my pair successfully created an environment that our cricket lived perfectly. There was some flaw of how I chose to put in fruits because that doesn't do anything and it create mold that may poison our cricket or even trap it in the thick layer of mold. We chose to not add any water because it can lead to the cricket drowning and having too much water, instead of that I put water into the soil not too much to turn the soil into mud like the other groups did. Because of that water it evaporates to the sides of the box when sun light was applied and that water the cricket used to drink. Sadly both of our cricket came to an end when one of our died of hunger and the other died because it ate the dead cricket. Based on research after the first failure I have found out that once a cricket eats its mate it will die about 4 hours later. Because of my research we have changed the amount of crickets in our second attempts. I have changed it into one cricket only and I have also found out that crickets lives best in grass and dirt with a big terrain so I have decided to put dirt at the bottom and grass at the top to create a wild feeling for the cricket. I have also found out what type of leaves does crickets eat.

What did your group do today? What methods did you use to remove bacteria? What methods did you use to remove salt? What methods did you use to remove sediment? Would you drink your water after it has passed through your filter system? Why or why not?

Our group fixed some little problems to make it work but then we cut a hole too big so we have to flip the entire system upside down to make it work. We are going to neutralize the water to a base by adding lemon. We are trying to create a tunnel for the water to go to a evaporation bottle but we don't have any bottle for it. We will remove sediment by putting a sieve so that it will remove the big solid then we use two cloth to remove small sediment. I think I wouldn't drink my water because this is the first time we are doing it so we are not professional and we won't make it work really well so I would probably get sick.

For my group we use natural and chemical for our design which means we will use solar power to evaporate our water up and we will use lemon to neutralize the acid inside the water, the reason why we do this is because last time we tested it out and it succeeded because the water heats up and started evaporating. Tomorrow we will be putting everything together into the 5L water bottle that I brought, plus we will add aluminum foil around the bottom of the bottle where it evaporate.

How did you work with your group to brainstorm? What ideas can you offer? What is your group’s next steps? What should you bring?

Our brainstorm was correct and spot on, our hypothesis was correct because we think that after it goes through the sieve it will remove big blocks of dirt and take out some of the sand then the cloth simply remove the small dirt. Our prototype was successful, it was successful because we manage to have the sieve and two cloth to fit into the water bottle. So our next step is to cover aluminum foil around the bottle so that we can heat the water then the water will be able to evaporate. Next time I will need to bring two cloth so that we can extract the dirt out of the water.

What is a "tragedy of the commons" problem? What situations right now are we facing that shows how water is a commons problem? Which one is the most important for us to solve in the next ten years? How can a student in middle school help their community learn about the problem or create a solution?


The video is very catchy which is why I was watching it. Also I love how he have explain so clearly during poor families home part.  Another part is that I like the way uses his words which is very persuasive. The way it was presented to us was great with the hollow gram graph it was very detailed and also the wooden chart. The reason why I did this video is because I wanted to see how much we have improved in the UN goal. The video shows how much we have improved. The video shows that the amount of money they earn have rise.
