Bio Technology &Ethics Project

This is Caitlyn’s and I project. In this project,  we learned so much while we were reflecting on the ted talk. It showed me that life today could/ will not be the same as life would be in a few years from now; technology is growing and discovers have been made to create a designer baby. A baby that can be modified into in my words “a human Barbie”. That concept if you think about it in that way is very scary. Yes, this technology is very well designed with the use of CRISPER and the RNA, etc. But I feel like this technology should be only used to prevent/ take away a disease that your child may have or has, instead of customizing you baby

Ceramics Group Project

Group members: Aliyah, Lauren, Lily, and Ricky

Here is our ceramics group project, we made a wine holder, a cheese plater, a wine cup, and a corkscrew, by using clay.

In this project, I feel like we did a really good job working together. We first were on the drawing board and decided on the idea of making dinner items and make it abstract to show others what abstract means. We all were on the same page when it came to this idea, and we started to design our dinner items.

In our group, we picked on what we wanted to make and we individually made it but we helped each other in the making of the project. I feel like this is a great way of doing a project because if someone is in need of help; the group member can work together and make something great. That’s exactly what we did; we worked together and created abstract dinner art.

An example of our group work, was when I needed help on the wine glass Lily and Lauren helped me make the base of it and we did in a way that I wouldn’t have thought of myself. Having group members in the group that have different perspectives can find an easier/ more creative ways to do things that you wouldn’t have thought of it yourself. So when I struggled to make the base the wine glasses we came together and accomplished the thing we strived to do.

Connection-Based Learning Project

In our group, we were really good with our planning stage for the project. We planned what each member of the group was doing, and also when it should be done. For me in the group I had all my work done on time and to the best of my abilities, overall I think it went really well

In our innovation group we created something that isn’t too common; a way to have electricity without using solar power, and I feel like we accomplish our goal and that makes me really happy with the results.

Like I said before I did my part in the project but I also help others in my group if they had difficulties with there part.

Last but not least we shared our final product with a video instead of a blog post and I feel like that was a very creative way of expressing our learning in a different way.

Science 9: Edible DNA Model

This model represents a DNA and what it would look like. In this model, we used 4 different colored marshmallows to represent the base of the chemicals. Yellow is adenine, Green is guanine, Pink is cytosine, Orange is thymine. All of these chemical bases are found in DNA. DNA is found in your body to make protein and instructs the organism what to do. That is why DNA is located in the nucleus due to the nucleus being the control center.
