Long walk to water reflection !

For the first station that I did I learned how to carry water on my head and it was pretty heavy. The second one that I did was carrying a wooden stick that had two bottles of water on  either end  of the stick it was super heavy. The third station I did was trying to purify river water but it failed. The fourth station I did was flinging a bucket into a river and getting the water out from the river. I think the hardest station was the stick with two buckets on either side because it was super heavy and tiring. I solved this problem by changing the angle that I was carrying it from. I think we could make this trip better I would make the laps that you have to walk with the water shorter because if it is to long we run out of time.

Shading in Art

In art we got to do any drawing we wanted to draw unless it followed the rules of  shading, one point perspective or point perspective. I choose to draw a jet because I didn’t know what to draw so I just decided to draw a jet. I also choose to do shading because it looked like it wouldn’t be as complected as 1point and 2point perspective. If I could do this again I would take it slower and not just shade the whole plane and make it more 3d. 

Buu Long Trip

In Buu long we had al lot of fun. Some of the activities I did were abseiling, rock-climbing and zip-lining.  Abseiling also known as repealing is an activity that is climbing down a mountain strapped in harnesses and ropes. abseiling was fun but scary because you are up so high and you don’t feel as safe as you actually are. We also did rock-climbing,  rock-climbing was fun because people where helping and telling me where to step and eventually I got to the highest spot you could go. The last activity i did was zip-lining, zip-lining is basically going down a metal wire with a pulley strapped onto your harness. and you go on the wire. It was really fun gliding with the air whooshing in your face but it wasn’t that long that you were in the air before you hit the ending. Now here are some photos of the trip.  

20 hour project 3 point shooting

My 20 hour project is focusing on a goal for 20 hours and it takes about a month. My 20 hour project was shooting three pointers in basketball. It has been quite fun working on shooting three’s but it is quite tiring shooting for hours. My plan for next week is going to research how I can get more power in my shot and I am trying to get a higher percentage from the  3 point line and I just need to keep practicing. So far I have been working on my 20 hour project for 5 hours. And it has been great!

Design Cycle

I used shooting a basketball for the design cycle. First I imagined Where I would shoot my basketball. Then I designed my form of shot. Then I planned how it would go in. After that I shot the ball. Finally, I evaluated how I could make my shot better.

Emre’s reflection

Challenge #1

Backward-LookingWhat problems did you encounter while you were working on this challenge? How did you solve them?

it was frustrating that my teammates were not  cooperating. I solved the problem by asking for my teammates help.

Inward-LookingWhat was satisfying to you or frustrating to you during the challenge?

It was nice having a finished product.

Outward-LookingIn what ways did your product meet or not meet the goals of the challenge?

it was challenging  finding a good idea.

Forward-LookingWhat would you change if you have a chance to do this challenge over again?

having a lighter prototype and having the zip line centred.

Feelings: What were some of the different feelings you experienced during the challenge?

I felt a bit frustrated with some of my teammates. But I felt quite satisfied with my final product. But I was really  frustrated when my zip line cup didn’t work. 👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿

Explorer Ferdinand Magellan

I have enjoyed working and collaborating with my group so far. I also liked designing the ship with my team and creating the structure. I learned about all the things that Ferdinand Magellan did in his life. I also learned how to overcome bad situations and come up with solutions.
