Robotic Trash Can Will Rule Trash Pollution On Earth

Throughout my engineering project for physics, I was creating my blueprint for my robotic trash can and also researching on the impact of pollution. It is very important to me because I want to try to find ways to solve pollution even though with rapid population and huge trash been wasted, it’s hard to think of ways to stop pollution which takes a lot of effort. In addition, I want to make a product not only just help collect all the trash that’s been thrown away but also to stop pollution. My main findings from the project would be the result of waste we have polluted on Earth. This was also a surprising finding because, for the past few years, waste pollution has increased a lot due to the fact that a lot of people are wasting their trash. Therefore, to solve my main findings from the project, I come up with a robotic trash can to clean up all the trash to reduce more pollution.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The main challenges for doing my project would be findings ways to deal with the aftermath of collecting all the trash. For the aftermath of collecting all the trash in my robotic trash can, I’ve been trying to think of a way to send these trash somewhere so there won’t be any pollution. But the three ways I find may result into pollution: incineration, composting, and the waste-to-energy plant. These three ways all can make pollution worse on Earth instead of reducing it. So to overcome it, I’m gonna program my robotic trash can after it’s fully collected all the trash, the robot will go to a stop where our company will collect the robot and transfer all the trash to NASA for help on sending all the trash to space. My strengths were keeping track on my timeline because I have accomplished all my work before the due date for presenting my product. My weaknesses would be finding sources of reducing pollution after collecting all the trash because even though I have most of my work done throughout my timeline, I still don’t have enough information to present to my audience would understand why I make my product and what’s going on in the world.

Piktochart: Robotic Trash Can

Robotic Trash Can Will Help Solve Earth Trash Pollution

After researching some of the topics for my project, I have learned that most of the waste and trash are going to landfill and spreading itself around the globe by breaking down into smaller parts, or by degrading into its chemical components. These dispersal methods are damaging the health of the animals, people, and ecosystems on this planet. Not only I learned the causes of trash pollution, I also learned that CRC (Connecticut River Conservancy) is also working on trash pollution that maybe I can help solve: 1. eliminating reason for people illegally dump trash 2. support laws that keep trash out of our rivers 3. spread the word about ways you can reduce waste. By doing this, I have added my robotic trash can a hologram to program entertainment of having people to throw their trash away. Therefore, many people will throw their trash in my robotic trash can instead of throwing it everywhere to make pollution.

The challenges that I have been throughout this research is what to do with all the trash after my robotic trash can collected them fully. The problem is I want to stop pollution but it seems kinda difficult to really “stop” pollution since we’ll always have pollution someday. But, I have managed to overcome this situation by three ways: incineration, composting, and waste-to-energy plants. Because I already have a recycle robotic trash can that can help reuse trash so now I’m planning on how to reuse other trash that can’t be recycled but can be used in other ways. So my best option would be waste-to-energy plants because incineration may bring more pollution by burning and composting takes too long and only for organic materials. In another word, inside my robotic trash can first compress all the trash then transfer all the waste to the waste-to-energy plant.

Looking at the timeline, I have completed all my following schedule for the 2nd blog post to get all my research and product done before May 20th, the presenting day. What I have successfully managed to achieve is research and the challenges of my product because my friends give me different kind of arguments and perspective for me to improve and fix my product during class time. So during that time, my plan has turn upside down where I need to fix some important factors throughout my schedule. My timeline envolved a successful route for my presentation because now I have solved my challenges, I can easily get my final product done before the due date and achieve my timeline goal.

Engineering Will Save the World: Robotic Trash Can

For the engineering project that we’re doing in Physics, I’m planning on making a product that may save the world or help stop and solve some problem in people’s daily life. What comes up in my mind that interest me thinking of an idea during the project is a trash can. Then my mind drags me to a problem that the world has, trash pollution. This topic is really important and interesting because it helps me learn the impact of trash pollution on Earth and the past early attempts that people try to solve this problem. When I was planning on making an engineering project that can help solve this problem, I start to combine robot and trash can together to make a product that a trash can move or swim around collecting trash or entertain people to throw their trash. Since I’ve come up with an idea, I have developed a research question to make a great product and present my final production throughout my final project: How can we produce a robotic trash can that can help reduce the trash pollution?

Since I’m interested in a trash can, I’m making a “Robotic Trash Can” as my product. Because all trash can is standing still waiting for people to throw their trash away, what if we make a trash can that can move or swim around and entertain people to throw away trash in many ways and not just throw it randomly. This “Robotic Trash Can” can move with an extension hand beside to collect trash that’s been thrown to the ground and we would have two different colors: white and green to interpret whether the trash can is collecting normal trash or recycling trash. I was also thinking that the “Robotic Trash Can” can try swimming like a fish and eat up all the trash that’s been thrown into the ocean. To entertain people to throw away their trash in many ways, we would have a scanner that will show a court of different sport where people can throw like a basketball player, kick like a soccer player, spike like a volleyball player, etc. This overall progress of engineering creativity is what I’m making for my product in my final project.

Here’s my timeline for the Final Engineering Product for Physics:

Physics Final Production: To What Extent Does Climate Change Impacts Soccer?

Days after days for finishing the Physics project, I have manage to follow my timeline and finished up all my work in my production, Powtoon. From the project, I was finishing up formatting my sources and putting it into a script so I can move it to my Powtoon. In addition, I followed my timeline for doing the project step by step toward the deadline. These are very important because I can manage myself on the time I needed to complete and also using the time wisely to slowly progressing on finishing my work. My main findings for this project is to deeply understand the effects of climate change for soccer because that’s what I’m looking for, I want to throughly go deeper in research for some sources that may help me understand and throughly demonstrated in my production. That’s my main findings for this project.

What I need to do By this date Completion
Researching “climate change impacting soccer” for my topic November 29th Completed
Finish up Blog post and continue researching future effects of climate change on soccer December 1st Completed
Researching for different properties of climate change affecting soccer and start citing December 3rd Completed

The main challenge for me doing this project is editing my production, Powtoon. I haven’t use Powtoon for a long time and I’m still getting the hang of it like putting images, characters, text, etc. It’s been quite a challenge since I have to get use to it and figuring out how to use it due to the updation from middle school year until now. My strengths was putting together on my sources and formatting it so it sounds like a script and also managing my timeline. I was able to do those steps because I’m keeping my time and I’m thinking on how to format it by looking at Powtoon to put down scenes by scenes then going back and formatting. But my weaknesses was to adapting the use of Powtoon because I’m having a lot of difficulty on my production and the media is more complicated then the past since a lot of features been updated in Powtoon. Plus, I’m using a lot of my time figuring out these features so for the future, I can use Powtoon as my media again and quickly getting the hang of it.

Hope you enjoyed watching my video and leave a comment for suggestions and questions. Thank you!

Knowledge of Climate Change Impacting Soccer – You’ll Be Surprise What’ll Happen!

After gathering and researching some sources, I have learned that the most destructive event from climate change impacting soccer is weather condition, specifically heat. So far from all of my research, every article has been talking about how the uprising temperature will cause the performance of the players. It’s not only the players but also the fans who’re watching from the stadium couldn’t take the advantage of the heat. Heat is only one kind of condition that’ll impact soccer, another condition would be an increase in air pollution where people (players and fans) don’t want to breathe in carbon dioxide or gases from the air because it’ll affect the health condition like damaging the lungs. In the future, we’re predicting that we won’t have outside sports (soccer) to play and we’re transitioning more to indoor turning soccer into indoor football. The solution I have found contains two things: stopping climate change and measuring heat stress. Obviously, we’re trying to stop climate change but it’s getting worst and worst each year and people are trying to figure out a way to prevent the increase of climate change so we can play soccer. To solve the heat, there’s a wet-bulb globe temperature where it helps measure the heat after each halftime game for players to stay inside for awhile and drink energy drinks until the heat is decreasing. Not only it helps measure halftime game heat, but it also let the managers decide whether or not to host the game on a hot day. That’s all my research so far for my final product, I want to know your thought about my research and how I can go for deeper thinking about the impacts and solutions. The two most challenging part I have been dealing with is organizing my research and how to format my scenes for my product (animation). For organizing, I have collected a lot of resources to talk about but there’re some sources that are very useless for my project. I managed to organize it by a help from my parents for giving me suggestions on how to pick choose good sources and delete the rest. After organizing my sources, the formatting for my Powtoon begins to become complicated. Even though I have organized it, I still need to rewrite it to make it sound like a script or sort each evidence and sources for each scene I’m gonna use. For managing this challenge, I plan first what scenes I’m gonna begin, middle, and end then pick the evidence for those scenes that’ll fit for my product. By looking at my timeline, everything is going pretty solid and on task. I have to manage myself following the timeline below and it’s been going very well that I’ve been completing the task that I needed to finish. My timeline is evolving toward meeting the deadlines because I have split up my steps and my work to one of the specific dates I need to accomplish and it’s going very smoothly. Now, I want to know your suggestion on this timeline for what I need to change or improve so I’ll have a great animation (Powtoon) to present.

Soccer – Climate Change Impact

A new project is coming up in our Physics class and we’re choosing our favorite or interesting topic to do that will be affected by climate change, extreme weather, etc. I’m planning to learn about to what extent does climate change impact soccer. This topic is going to be interesting and important to me because I like to play sports in my free time and I want to know how climate change will impact outdoor sports that I love to play, and that’s soccer. A lot of people love to play soccer, it’s not only people who plays soccer but also people who watch soccer like Fifa or World Cup. It’s possible that in the future we won’t be able to play soccer due to climate change, global warming, extreme weather, and other sustainability that might impact us being able to play outside. That’s why it’s important to me to know more and understand what’ll happen and why it happens when climate change impact soccer. My production for this project is animation and I’m using Powtoon to display my sources and the impact of my topic. I’m considering what other animation media out there that we never know could be very fansantic for my project, so if you know the media, please leave a comment to help my for displaying my project. For my timeline, I need to first start off with gathering all my resources on my topic and sorting my sources by putting it together on the documents for 2 days. The resources for what I’m searching is how does climate change impact soccer, what factors could impact the stadium, players, audience, and finally understand what’ll happen in the future for soccer. After researching and learning about my sources, I need to create my Powtoon and plan out my scenes that fit my topic. Finally, I write what I need to say on to Powtoon and get ready to display my project on the due date. That’s my timeline for completing the new project in Physics.

Human Right Project Reflection

In this project on Human Rights, we focused on improving/learning on society of sustainable housing. This is an important skill because we can understand what the organization is helping to solve this problem and what we can do to help too.  One thing I improved while working on this project is my ability to learn and understand the world situation and the support of the organization to help the situation. 

What did you learn from visiting other exhibits?

I had learned a lot of different situation of the exhibits. Each person’s presentation is really interesting and shows how they have understood and solve the situation. I have learned from other groups sustainable housing situation that I learn how they just show the pictures and explain what a house need and all those. They explain how they want like wheelchair people can have like a fit house for them to use. So I have learned a lot from other people’s exhibits.

How did my collaboration with classmates help me focus my ideas or provide new insights?

My collaboration with my classmates really helped me focus on me focus my ideas because I learn different skills and learning from the situation we are learning in society. It shows that how I had understand what I need for my situation and plan for all these. Group Presentation Human Rights

 

 

Human Rights Post

Fact 1: On May 3, 1961, a year later, John Lewis was starting out on a new history-making protest though at the moment its participants were so worried for their safety that they were half-jokingly calling this Chinese dinner “the Last Supper.” The following day began the next major chapter in the civil rights movement: the Freedom Ride. – A Dream of Freedom, by Diane McWhorter

Fact 2: Slavery in Africa changed when the first Europeans sailed to Africa’s west coast. In 1441, Portuguese explorers kidnapped 12 Africans. They gave these people to Portugal’s Prince Henery as slaves. – The Slave Trade in Early America, Kristin Thoennes Keller

Resume Reflection

Athletes Resume

My best professional qualities in my resume have a lot of results. I have to use a lot of resources so if people want me in a job, they want to see what I have experience on what my future job is. I have included what like more boss or leader want to see: highlights, activities, athletic achievement, etc. I use professional words to bring out the effect so the leader or the boss would accept me to get this job. I also add some specific things I need to get a good grade on my resume so I feel like I done really well done on that. These are my best professional qualities.

My worst professional qualities in my resume are only my qualities of the resume doesn’t really fit with my topic of my future job. If you look at my resume, it doesn’t really fit into my topic of my future job, it just doesn’t match. That is my only worst professional qualities because I feel like I have done pretty well done on my resume.

Imperialism DBQ Reflection

Bright Spot:

A strength I showed was my ability to explain well on analysis with finding good evidence. The reason is because I have explained throughout the piece really well and I had use good evidence to support my thesis. I also explain it clearer because some of my essays, my explanation wasn’t clear or not deep enough. So I feel like this is my strength that I show was my ability.

To Work On:

Something I should work on in my next essay is that I need to work on my style and development because it is very weak and it’s not well throughout my piece. I should really work on that, and also mechanics because if I don’t fix it, it’ll make my piece really misunderstanding.
