The Skype experience: It was interesting because you got to hear what it was like from a person that actually comes from Dominican. Even if they were they went has electricity they actually may see the conditions some people live in
Screen shot of plans: Are plan is to make a power point on everything that has happened during this project and what other people are doing. To also try and spread awareness for light poverty.
Ideas for connections: We can get in touch with Dennis and Eladio. And asked more questions to get more information.
Who we talked to: We talked to Eladio, Dennis, Edwardo, and Paul from the Dominican Republic. We also talked to Ms.Fogarty from New Brunswick.
What interested me: To help them out with light poverty and what others peoples ideas were because everyone had kinda different ideas.
How do you feel about this experience: This is a good experience because we get to help other people out and we get to understand more about what its like to not have electricity.
What we are doing: we are making a power point on what has happened during the project. And we are going to put down some ideas other groups have had on what their going to do for this project. we also want to try and spread awareness.
Science app review
My problem- i need to study the periodic table and find out the history and images of the elements and hazards that some elements have. But i have lost all my notes and forgot some at the school and the test is tomorrow you know that if you don’ t study you will fail.
The app- Elements: the periodic table. Its a app that has every thing to do with the periodic table. It shows you all the elements you can click on one and it shows you everything that has to do with that element like it shows you a picture of the element the phase, density, the group its in, it will also explain the history of what ever element you clicked on.
Innovative ideas- I could research apps that could help out, I could keep my work more organized, I would study all the elements on the periodic table on the app, and i could figure out the app and try to memories all of the things like practice one a day and get it locked in your head.
publish- I will put it on edublog and you could always make your own blog and publish it there and people who had the same problem as you may come across it.
process- The app that i used to solve my problem was pretty good a lot of information on it that could be very useful. But they could make it a little better like they could make it more organized like they could color coat if the element is a metal or non-metal. Thats the only big problem
What is the problem to attempted to solve?
We tried to solve how the experiment we chose would be effected in space would there be a difference or would it remain the same. Are question was would bacteria grow faster in space.
What research did you do to find a great experiment.
We first came up with any random idea we had and wrote it down on a piece of paper. There was an idea about bacteria first we had to decided what were some ideas that we could do with bacteria and does bacteria grow faster in space was on it so we all agreed to that. We used are heads to come up with that idea.
What innovative ideas do have about how this problem could be solved.
Heating it up until it couldn’t stand it to see how it holds up in temperature changes and we could also freeze it to see what would happen their.
How did the process go
It went okay at the end it was getting hard to come up with ideas some of are ideas we had we had to though out because they didn’t make the most of sense or they just weren’t needed. When we did the agar plates we got a little bit of bacteria. It went pretty smooth for most of it.
Currents from the kitchen.
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.
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.
