I think the principals of learning effect us every day and especially in some of our science projects, like the SSEP project where we made experiments that had a chance at going into space. They were also important in out engineering brightest project where we made lights and talked to people in the Dominican Republic over Skype. These are the principals of learning.
Recognizing the consequences of one’s actions : This was very important because for good or bad there is consequences to all of our actions. like in the SSEP project we had the chance to send something out side of out atmosphere and maybe help someone with the results we got.
Connectedness : Connectedness was extremely I’m portent in our Engineering Brightness project. We had to skip chat with the Dominican Republic and another grade 11 class that had worked on this project before use and they gave us good suggestions. they suggested that we not try the hand crank but to stick with what we know solar energy.
Patience and time : we had to use patients and time when we were printing our light it took 5 hours each time. the firs time w printed it id was too small so it was a wist of plastic and time but fail often succeed faster. that is a saying that a very smart person told me.
The well-being of the self, the family, the community, the land, the spirits, and the ancestors: we might not have benefited off of our land or family but we may have helped other families in the Dominican Republic with our light designs and fund raising.
In condition the first peoples principals are very useful and apply to almost everything. day to day I don’t really notice these things but now that I have sat down and wrote this post I fell like I need to thank the first peoples principals for every thing that it has done.
During the engineering brightness project I worked together with Liam to create a 3D model of a light for people in light poverty. Before this project I did not know about the word light poverty but now I have learnt so much thank to Mr. Robinson. We had to then print the prototype which is easier said than done. we had to measure all of the dimensions perfectly and we had multiple failed prints, one time the print was too small and another time it fell over while it was printing. we had lots of trial and error but we came through and finished the complete light. all we need to finish is the circuit board and battery. this is a picture of one of the failed prints.
While everyone goes through there day wether they want to or not they impact the enviroment maybe not that drastically and you may not even notice it. But for good or bad we impact the environment and we can’t help it.
midnight the day starts… technicaly I am breathing, exhaling co2 witch is damaging the atmosphere I will continue to inhale and exhale all day at least I hope then I wake up and take a shower no more than 5 minutes but I use 10.5 gallons of water, I take that water from the hydro sphere impacting it just a little bit every day but at least I’m clean. I then get ready for school, i eat breakfast and leave, my mom drives me in her car witch is constantly emiting co2 witch is damaging the atmosphere. as I look out my window I see the sidewalks littered with trash which is killing animals and destroying the earth which effects the biosphere and the geosphere. I get through my fist two classes and its time for lunch. I eat my lunch and throw away the garbage which slightly impacts the atmosphere and the geosphere.then I finish my last two classes and hop on the bus. The buss like my moms Car is constantly emiting co2 witch is damaging the atmosphere. I get home and I do my home work then watch TV. All the lights are on and I’m using my TV and Xbox I am also charging all my devices using electricity witch Is created mostly with dams which are using the hydrosphere.
Those are some of the ways I impact all of the spheres everyday. I know I probably for got some ways that we don’t notice everyday. Here are some pictures of how I use the hydrosphere electricity and water.
