Tybalt Costume Project

All the quotes are from Act 1 of the play in either Scene 1 or 5

“I do but keep the peace. Put up thy sword, or mange it part these men with me” scene 1, 59

  • Tybalt is a violent person who wants to get into a fight with any Montague that comes his way.

“turn thee, Benvolio, look upon thy death” scene 1, 58

  • Tybalt is wanting to kill Benvolio and calls himself the death of him.

“you are a princox, go, be quiet,” scene 5, 85

  • Tybalt is an annoying character that even Capulet was finding greedy, when suggesting ruining the party because of Romeo.

“now by the stock and honour of my kin, to strike him dead I hold it not a sin” Scene 5, 57

  • Tybalt vows to kill Romeo after seeing him at the Capulet party, and not being able to go and fight him.

“in the instant came the fiery Tybalt, with his sword prepared” Scene 1, 99

  • Benvolio tells Montague about his encounter with Tybalt and how he acted.


Tybalt is an aggressive character that vows to kill the Montague’s because of their family rivalry but is not the most intelligent character and is a bit of a hot head. I imagine him wearing the colour red because of his “fiery” temper, and in the movies, we have seen from the 1968 and 1996 films the Capulet’s have all worn red clothing to distinguish themselves a part. I chose to give Tybalt a chain and sunglasses to give him a kind of spoiled looked since even Capulet told him to be quiet. I gave him the skull ring since he is a very aggressive character who wants to fight any Montague, he comes across including Benvolio.

Copy and paste relevant information directly from source:Genetic engineering, sometimes called genetic modification, is the process of altering the DNA? in an organism’s genome?.

This may mean changing one base pair? (A-T or C-G), deleting a whole region of DNA, or introducing an additional copy of a gene?.

It may also mean extracting DNA from another organism’s genome and combining it with the DNA of that individual.

Genetic engineering is used by scientists to enhance or modify the characteristics of an individual organism.

Genetic engineering can be applied to any organism, from a virus? to a sheep.

 For example, genetic engineering can be used to produce plants that have a higher nutritional value or can tolerate exposure to herbicides.


The nematode worm, C. elegans, only has around 300 cells in its entire nervous system, making it a very simple model for studying Alzheimer’s disease.

Also, due to the fact the worm is nearly transparent, when their nerve cells are labelled with green fluorescent protein (GFP), it is possible to watch the location and activity of various structures and proteins under the microscope.

The genetic material of C. elegans can easily be genetically modified to make the worm produce specific proteins the researchers want to study.

In humans, the APP gene codes for a protein associated with the amyloid plaques that are characteristic of people with Alzheimer’s disease.

So, to study Alzheimer’s, the researchers genetically engineered the nerve cells of the worm to contain the APP gene, effectively giving it Alzheimer’s.

By tagging the APP protein produced in the worm with green fluorescent protein it was possible to see that all the cells that made contact with APP died as the worm got older.

The researchers were then able to monitor the progression of Alzheimer’s disease in the worm and go on to apply their findings to understanding the role of APP in humans with Alzheimer’s disease.  


Make “raw” notes (this is not a summary):

  • When you modify the DNA code
  • Any type of DNA mutation, point mutation, deletion and insertion
  • You can transfer DNA from one organism to another 
  • Used to enhance an organism
  • Works on any organism
  •  scientists are using worms to research Alzheimer’s and help find a cure or a way to prevent the disease since the worms only have 300 cells in their nervous system

The scientists inserted one gene into the cats that helps them resist the feline form of Aids.

They also inserted a gene that produces a fluorescent protein called GFP, Nature Methods journal reports.

This protein – which is produced naturally in jellyfish – is commonly used in this area of research to monitor the activity of altered genes

We did it to mark cells easily just by looking under the microscope or shining a light on the animal,”

Shaun’s Goals

I will use better time management with my school assignments by the end of the year. I will do this by making sure I don’t procrastinate and start the day I get it. I will always ask the teacher for help if I don’t understand the assignment when I’m given it instead of waiting until the day before its due. If I’m given multiple assignments from multiple classes on the same day, I will make sure I complete them before I go on do something else and start them the day, I get it or order them from most important to least.

I will get a B by the end of the semester in CLE 10. I will do this by using good time management and doing all my assignments on time and putting in the effort to make each assignment good. I will make sure to be smart about my decisions and don’t procrastinate and focus on other classes assignments. I will be able to ask my teacher if I have any questions. When I don’t do good on an assignment I will try and do better in my others and really focus on making them good.

Soundtrack of my Life

M.T.A. by Kingston Trio

This song reminds me of all the times my dad told me about his uncle singing to him while they went fishing and the times my dad and I would sing together. I would like my kids to one day get this song stuck in their head too so that they can appreciate it like I have and my dad has.

She Don’t Use Jelly by Flaming Lips

This song reminds me of my time driving up to every month from the age of around five and we would listen to this song every time. We still listen to it everyone once in a while when I see him and we have a good laugh about how stupid the lyrics are yet we still for some reason enjoy it.

Lonely Boy by The Black Keys

This song reminds me of my time playing NHL ’08 with my older brother and has stuck with me for a very long time and now. Even though the song wasn’t in the game the song just reminds me of playing NHL and street hockey with him. The Black Keys are my favourite band to listen to and this song still comes up regularly in my spotify playlist.

We’re Not Gonna Take It by Twisted Sister

This song reminds me of grade 3 for whatever reason my friends and I would sing it during recess. The bigger picture that it reminds me of though is my stepdad. It reminds me of all the times we would go out in the car and I think he was just wanting to show me a song that he listened to a lot as a kid.

Gimme Shelter by The Rolling Stones

This song introduced me more or less into the world of rock. If it wasn’t for this song I would have never gone on to listen to the likes of other artists like Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Lou Reed and the Doors. It reminds me lot of grade 6 when I first moved to Poco and I would go over to my uncle’s house and help him with his cars.

2L Water Bottle Rocket

1. How did the height you estimated your rocket would reach compare with the actual
estimated height?

The rocket didn’t as nearly as high as I thought it would.
2. What do you think might have caused any differences in the height you achieved?

My rocket didn’t go as high because it launched early before the rocket was ready and didn’t have enough air pressure.
3. Did your rocket launch straight up? If not, why do you think it veered off course?

My rocket veered of to the right. I think it is because of the bad launch but i’m not 100% sure.
4. Do you think that this activity was more rewarding to do alone? Would you have preferred to

do it in groups? Why or why not?

I liked doing the activity alone and probably would have found it rewarding if my rocket was successful.
5. Did you adjust your model rocket at all? How? Do you think this helped or hindered
your results?

I had to alter the design for the top of the rocket but I didn’t think that ended up effecting the launch of the rocket because there wasn’t enough time for the parachute to deploy.

6. How do you think the rocket would have behaved differently if it were launched in a
weightless atmosphere?

The rocket would have continued to have gone up if it was a weightless atmosphere.
7. What safety measures do you think engineers consider when launching a real rocket?
Consider the location of most launch sites as part of your answer.

Engineers need to make sure it’s an isolated area with no buildings or trees in the area for the blast
8. When engineers are designing a rocket which will carry people in addition to cargo, how
do you think the rocket will change in terms of structural design, functionality, and

They need to make sure there is a fuselage in the rocket and living area
9. Do you think rocket designs will change a great deal over the next ten years? How?

I think they will relatively look the same because rockets have looked
10. What tradeoffs do engineers have to make when considering the space/weight of fuel
vs. the weight of cargo?

They need to make sure there is enough fuel to counteract the weight of the cargo.

Water Bottle Rockets

What have you learned about the history of rockets and space travel? Write a summary on the blog about something or someone you found interesting and tell why. The first sign of rocketry started in 4th century A.D. I found it interesting that most rockets where originally used for war and wasn’t until the 15th century that they where used for good.

Now that you know about the basic parts of a rocket and what they do, write about each part and its importance in your own words. What will be different on your water rocket than on a “real” rocket and why? A nose cone is is used to make the rocket have a more aerodynamic movement through the air. The payload is something carried in the rocket. The propulsion chamber is where the engine of the rocket is located. The fin is used for stability for the rocket.

Write a little on the blog about how to find the Center of Pressure and the Center of Gravity on your rocket and why they are important. To find the center of pressure you make a cut out of your rocket and balance it on a ruler, where the cut out balances is the center of pressure. To find the center of gravity on your rocket you can tie a string to your rocket and slide it until you find the perfect balance. This is important because you need a balance of the two so that the rocket will remain stable in flight.

Based on what you have learned about rocket design (nose cone & fins) describe what your rocket will look like and why you chose that design on the blog. I will use a long nose cone to make it aerodynamic and counteract the air friction. I will use average fins.
