Finale of Manure

During the weeks of research, I have been working hard for this project of poop.  Its been hard, but I manage to work around it by trying to accomplish my duties of doodies.

What did you do and why was it important to you?  What were your main findings from the project?

  • What I did is I tried to find a way to generate electricity using animal waste.  The reason for finding a bizarre idea is because my empathy for areas that is economically challenged and does not have the resources to generate electricity, but they have access to manure.  Finding a way to generate electricity with manure can help those areas have electricity, or power.  Some of the findings that were important was how manure was being used as a way to generate energy because finding any way how to generate energy with manure is a great find.

    What were some main challenges for you doing this project?  What were your strengths and what were your weaknesses?

  • Some of the challenges that I had to face is finding good and reliable research in the internet.  Some of the websites that I visited are not really trustworthy as they sometimes have false information and can lead to wrong ideas or wrong information.  A way I faced this problem is going to school databases and try to find some resources there, if I can’t I had to use websites that had an .edu since those sites can be relied on.  Some strengths that I have is making the final project because, I have learned from my previous mistakes and I think I can learn well from all of it.  Another one of my strengths is placing valuable information into a small and compact space and also not writing too much.  Some weaknesses, I would say, organizing my work.  Its hard for me since I don’t really have a base layout which I can put all the information that I can put in, but then I try my best to organize everything so the project doesn’t end up in a mess.

Final Project

Manure Energy

Hello, this is an update about my research of manure energy.

  • What have you learned so far towards your research question so far?
    • Some information that I have learned during the past days is that manure contains 3% plant nutrient nitrogen, 2% percent phosphorus and 1% percent potassium, also it has high levels of ammonia and dangerous pathogens.  Another thing that I learned from all the research is how to convert manure and other out-of-date consumables.  The manure is mixed with the out-of-date consumables and then it has methane running through the whole mixture, then gas has been created.  This video explains better.
  • What has been challenging for you?  How have you managed to work around your problems?`
    • Some of the problems that I had to face is finding how to actually find out how to make energy out of straight manure because all the research that I have done for the past few weeks only shows how to generate energy with manure and other substances that aid or mix well with the manure.  I didn’t really find a way to work around my problem since that most of the websites that I have been mostly contains information on how to generate energy with manure AND other substances.
  • How is your timeline going? What have you managed to achieve and how is your timeline evolving to meet deadlines?
    • Currently, my timeline is somewhat filled, there are still blanks, some free space to fill in dates that I need to finish.  Some things that I did achieve when accomplishing my timeline is having a new sight of things that I didn’t see before for example more research, or making the bones of the presentation.  The timeline has grown into something that will keep my final project in line and picture perfect.  (timeline)

Making Energy with Manure

What are you planning and why is it important to you?

  • What I’m planning is to find a way to make energy by using manure.  The reason why this is important to me is because this can help countries that can not afford power plants and many more things that can help generate energy, though the countries that can not afford those things can afford manure and finding a way to generate energy with manure can benefit them.

What are you going to make (the product)?

  • What I’m going to make is a presentation and why I’m making a presentation is because it helps state lots of different information throughout different slides.  The problem with the presentation is that when there is too much text or slides, it will be boring or too long to read and might be boring for the reader.

Your timeline for completion – what are you doing when, what do you need to learn and when are you going to learn it.

  • As for learning things, I would like to learn as soon as possible because when researching, it can take a really long time to develop and understand the topic more.  The sooner I learn about the topic, which is manure, the more knowledge I can gain and I can write and give information which are detailed and understandable.

Final Electric Cars and Motor Cars information

This is the last post I’m going to post about my progress about researching about how Electric Cars does the same or more damage as Motored Cars to the atmosphere.  In this blog post will contain a reflection and my final product which is a self-explanatory presentation.

  • “Abstract”.  What did you do and why was it important to you? What were you main findings from the project?
    • What I did is researching how Electric Cars can damage equally or more damage to the atmosphere than a Motored Car.  The reason why I researched this is because people think Electric cars are green and really helpful to the environment, but really its a bad car and really devastate the environment.  Some main findings that I found during the project is how electricity is being gathered because it explains how electric cars get its energy from and how it is being made, and how the electricity is being made could be terrible to the environment.

  • What were some main challenges for you doing this project? What were your strengths and what were your weaknesses?
    • Some of the main challenges that I came across is putting the information into the final product because it was hard putting the information without taking the information from the website.
    • My strengths were finding sources that relates to my research, and how I did that is by going to the school’s paid websites and searching basic and broad questions or topics then soon narrowing it down to a single article or fact.
    • My weaknesses was trying to find detailed information since I’m only limited to the school’s paid websites, there isn’t really much to find, but how I got around that problem is by going for a broad and basic questions because it shows lots of articles and information about my research.

FINAL PRODUCT

New information about Electric Cars and Motored Cars

This is the second blog post about on how Electric Cars does the same or more damage to the atmosphere compared to a Motored Car.  This shows what in recent times what I have done throughout the other classes.

  • What have you learned so far towards your research question so far?
    • What I have learned throughout the days is the basics of an Electric and Motored car.

  • What has been challenging for you?  How have you managed to work around your problems?
    • What challenges me the most is finding a reliable source because not everything in the internet is true and there is lots of websites that could give false information that could ruin my final product.  How I manage to work around my problems is going to a reliable place that my school pays, so that my research could be easily done.
  • How is your timeline going? What have you managed to achieve and how is your timeline evolving to meet deadlines?
    • My timeline is going well, I added a few things to it so I know when the important dates are and can finish before it.  (I don’t really understand what it means what I achieved) My timeline is evolving into an organized timeline, even though there are some blanks in between, though it includes the major and minor dates so it could inform me when it is due. (Timeline)

Physics reflection numero uno

Hey Willard here,  this is a reflection for physics to help me be productive throughout a unit.

  • What are you planning on doing and why is it so important to you?
    • What I’m planning to do is to compare the damage to the atmosphere caused by an electric car with a motored car.  The reason why this is important to me is to identify that electric cars are not that green to the environment, thus producing the same amount or more carbon dioxide as a motored car.
  • What are you going to make (the product)?
    • The product that I will produce is a presentation that is detailed so that the reader does not require a presenter to present the presentation.  Downside is that the presentation will be too long and too detailed and can be boring for the reader reading it.
  • Your timeline for completion – what are you doing when, what do you need to learn and when are you going to learn it.
    • For researching, I’m doing it as soon as possible because the more I learn the more hard evidence I could provide.  As for what I need to learn, the basics of the use of energy of an electric car and the motored car and how the energy is gained.  When I would learn it is as soon as possible when I get an idea of what to research because the more I research, the more information I can use.

Writing Comic Reflection

During writing, we were assigned to make a comic book that we wanted to create.  After that, we were told to choose a piece of panel that we felt that we are proud of.

The reason why I chose this panel is because this panel is the main reason how the conflict started in my comic book and this is a film technique called wide shot.

Eco Dome Reflection Day 20 and 21

  • What I have observed in the eco-dome is that the cricket that we have placed only survived one day because we have dropped the cricket to high, or the cricket had a bad fall causing it to break one of its legs.
  • The amount of leaf that was eaten was small because the leg of the cricket was broken and it had a hard time gathering food.
  • The survival of the cricket was hard because it had a hard time walking, climbing and jumping because of the faulty leg making eating and drinking water hard and almost impossible.

Video conclusion

Ecodome Reflection Day 7 to 9

Observations of ecodome:

  • What I have observed is that the crickets have drowned in the puddle of mud that has been created.
  • Another thing that I discovered when I opened the ecodome is that there were holes in the leaf which I assume that the crickets have eaten.
  • The crickets had drowned in the water and what I think why that happened is because that the crickets were trying to eat each other or trying to drink the water.
  • The smell of the ecodome was foul when we opened it.

Conclusion

  • What happened?
    • The crickets have died because of starvation or drowning.
    • The foul smell of the ecodome might have been caused by dead corpse
  • What specific things did you observe?
    • What I observed is that the leaf has holes in it which meant that the crickets ate some of the leave.
