Currents from the kitchen?

Currents from the kitchen.

1.)Your prediction?

a.) Which fruit will produce the most electric voltage?

I think the fruit that will produce the most electric voltage is the apple.

b.) Why: I think the apple will produce the most voltage because their is a very thin skin witch may effect the path of the current and its doesn’t tend to be a mushy fruit. I think a musky fruit would have a harder time conducting electricity. The apple also isn’t to watery that the current can’t pass thought apples have enough water in them to pass the electricity but not enough to drown it.

2.) To create a battery cell you have to create a closed circuit and then you have to grab a light bulbs to see if it will light up.

3.)Set up your experiment in groups of 4?

When you get in your groups of 4 you have to grab the supplies. you need a voltmeter conducting wires and a light bulb and a piece of fruit then you began.

4.)Perform your retirement with a couple of fruits and vegetables.

We used a banana and an apple.

5.)Document your results.

The banana didn’t work we got no charge the light bulb didn’t lite up the voltmeter didn’t move. The apple we didn’t get the light bulb to turn on but we did get the voltmeter to move a little bit.

6.) Explanation for your observation and results.

I think the banana didn’t work so good was because we kept on sticking the screw back in so their was a whole bunch of little holes and i think that could have effected the results. I think the apple worked because we also tried to put it in all of the different levels in the voltmeter the other one we kept on the highest current flow which also would not help with trying to get the voltmeter to work or the light bulb. with the apple to it was cut in half which could have some effect.

Digital Footprint

Digital Footprint


How might your digital footprint affect your future opportunities? Give least two examples.

1) It could affect your job opportunists. Because if you apply for a job and your resume is perfect you could be the perfect person for that job  because your dedicated etc.. Then the boss of that job takes a look at your social media or your digital footprint and it makes you look bad and you could look like an undesirable person to hire you.

2) It could affect your way of life. If something went viral and i gave you a bad name you could be made fun of. Because it could be really embarrassing or a video that may give you a bad name. Like someone video taped you at a party then posted that could give you a bad digital footprint.

Describe at least three strategies that you can use to keep your digital footprint appropriate and safe.

1) Don’t google anything in-appropriate because the internet can follow you so the best bet is to keep it pg 13.

2) If you really have to google something you can put a virus protector or a app that keeps your search private.

3) It may be easy to search but it’s not easy to erase

What information did you learn that you would pass on to other students? How would you go about telling them.

I would pass on that your search history is pretty hard to get ride of and any pictures you post on social media you could delete it but its still out their it is never fully deleted. I would tell the person by face to face talking to them in real life  i would probably phrase it the way i wrote it but cut some of those things out.

Governing Quebec Paragraph

“As a British official, I realize there are many alternatives to governing Quebec. I have chosen the policy of Biculturalism to ensure the colony is properly run.” Biculturalism would be the best option at this time due to the threat of war. If we leave the French and the First Nation alone and let them practice there culture we have less of a target on or backs. We could be the good guys by letting them be free to follow their culture. We would have to accept their culture and be more opened minded than we have been in the past. We don’t have to practice their culture we just have to accept it. their will be excellent rewards in the end if we follow thought. for example a more open country more of a bound between use. we would gain knowledge from the different cultures.

Here are the three reasons why Biculturalism is the best option

1) Everyone in the colonies will be happier because they don’t have to adapt to another culture. They don’t run as high of a risk of being deported somewhere else because they have the right to be a part of their own culture. They know that they don’t have have to flee anywhere because there are two cultures and they are both right in their own ways.

2) They would become more open to new ideas and other ways of thinking because some times there probably would be clashes between the two cultures but they would have to agree at some point so it doesn’t result in a war and they can live at peace. Also they would become more accepting and they would probably find good things about each others culture and add to their own.

3) They would have more alliances that if another country tried to take over Quebec or the place they were living at a time they would have to fight twice as many man to get the land they might not have the same culture but there fighting for the same land the wars for them wouldn’t be as devastating because they wouldn’t loses as many man. There army would probably be stronger than it has ever been. And the French and the English fought the most for this land against one another. So if they got to keep their own culture they would remain more as friends than enemies because they don’t have to fight against which is the strongest and best culture etc.. which is a win on both sides because their would be a lot less wars.

“As i have outlined above, i believe there are the three reasons why Biculturalism is the best option.he best policy for governing Quebec is Biculturalism. This will ensure that the colony will remain under British control and provided wealth for out glorious country.

SSEP1: Bacterial growth and it’s resistance to antibiotic

Bacterial growth and it’s resistance to antibiotics in micro gravity.

Staphylococcus intermedius (this is the bacteria they used): It originally come’s from the nasal cavity of a pigeon, dogs, foxes, and horses. It’s a gram positive bacteria which means it has a thick cell wall of protein called peptidoglycan.  Beneath the microscope they are round and form in clusters. staphylococcus intermedius is one in many 40 species of its type. It normally lives on the skin and in the mucus of humans and other organisms. staphylococcus can cause one in many diseases in the human

Staphylococcus under the microscope

Ciprofloxacin:  it is used to fight different bacterial infections in the body.  It is also used to treat infections.  It can be used in tablet or liquid injection form.

Bacterial growth in micro gravity:

In space more layers of bacteria are exposed to nutrients causing more reproduction. In micro gravity the cells have no density enabling greater spatial freedom for replication and nutrition out take which increase the amount of bacteria that is produced. The bacterial growth rate increases rapidly in space.




Project Questions:

who: Grade 10 and 11 of Valley Center High School students, Jeff Tracey science teacher and the co-principal investigators: Garrett Chandler, Wesley Crow, Cole Klinkhammer, co-investigator Logan Burks and Samuel Sheahan.

Where: Valley Center High School, Kansas

When: January 9, 2014 at 10:42am ET. They sent mission B up to space.

Why: To see the effects of Microgravity on bacterial growth and it’s resistance to antibiotics.

what: They sent there experiment up to space. To see what the results would be.
