2a) The story of your experience: We started out wanting to create a light and design are own but we saw a lot of other groups doing that so when ms. Robinson suggested to do a PowerPoint to document everything that has gone on we though that was a good idea. We have been documenting everything from the first PowerPoint to the last.

b.) With whom you connected: we didn’t really need to directly connect we just listened to what the other groups questions were and what the responses were.

c.) What you did/made: We did a PowerPoint that documents everything that has happened during this project.

3.) Skills you gained: How to explain more about the things your doing also that it doesn’t take much to help someone out.

b.) How you feel you met your learning goals: I think i met them on an okay basis because i didn’t really show a lot of network into the project we didn’t connect with anyone outside of the class. But other than that i think i met my learning goal.

4.) A debrief of the experience:

a.) How the collaboration went: For the most part it was pretty good it’s sometimes a little harder to work in a group because not everyone will like your idea. Our PowerPoint turned out pretty good a lot of information of what we learned.

b.) What you did well/ What can you improve; I did well on the information we put in the PowerPoint but i could work on making it more organized and sticking to one idea not all these little slides think of the big question.

c.) How you felt about connection-based learning: I liked how we got to come up with the ideas on what we were going to do we didn’t have to do it on something we didn’t want to. I also liked how we got to talk with other people outside are class room that was pretty cool.

How cells multiply.

How cells multiply

Sexual Reproduction: There must be a male and a female for sexual reproduction. To produce a living thing the males sperm cell has to be able to fertilize the egg of the female. If the sperm cannot fertilize the egg the women will not be able to conceive a baby. Not one person alike has the same DNA as you. Unless you are an identical twin. By combinding genetic information from two people of different sexes you can produce a new living organisms.This processe can happen with animals, humans and even plants.

Asexual Reproduction: The clone will be an identical copy of the parents. It mostly happens with plants, bacteria, and fungi. There are all different types of Asexual Reproduction. The offsprings are genetically identical to the one parent. It does not involve the fusion of gametes.

Mitosis: It’s when a single cell divides into two daughter cells. When it divides the two cells will become identical. The most significant purpose is to replace worn out or old cells. It’s also an Asexual Reproduction.

Meiosis:  The cell division reduces the numbers of chromosomes. Most cells divide to produce two copies of themselves.  Is mostly apart of Sexual Reproduction.

How organism grow: Organism grow when the cell divides because this doubles how many organisms their are. They are constantly dividing.  Because organisms keep on growing in your body needs consistent supply of nutrition and oxygen. When you get an injury or a bruise, your body heals them by developing more cells than your body normally does on that spot.

Understanding Reproduction: Reproduction can happen in two way Sexual reproduction and Asexual reproduction. They are different things but they almost have the same function cut one you need two living creatures and the other you just need one. But they both produce something

Mutation story.

Mutation story

Part 1:

I am Preiffer syndrome i come in every 1 to 10,000 kids but today i chose you. You will be diagnosed with type 2 one of the most sever types. it’s a dominate genetic disorder so only one of your  parent has to carry the gene. But you will get this as a new mutation none of your parents carry the gene so it didn’t get passed down to you. When your still in your mom womb. The plates in your head will join together to early. The skull can’t expand as the brain grows which leads to a limited brain growth. as goes for your other bones in your skull they will form premature and it will effect the shape of your head and face. It will also effect your hands they will be wider than most peoples hands and your thumbs will be deviated. You will be born with a cloverleaf shaped head and bulgy eyes. You probably won’t have a very long life because kids with type 2 or 3 have a higher risk of death than kids with type 1. You got this because their is a mutation of the fibroblast growth factor receptor 1 and chromosome 8. The gene code fibroblast growth , are important for normal bone development. It also can be the change in the FGFR 1 or FGFR 2 and can alter protein function and cause prolonged signaling.

Part: 2

What are questions you are trying to answer.

What is Pfeiffer syndrome,                                                                                      How does it effect their life                                                                                      How many people does it effect,                                                                            Do they have as long as a life expectancy,                                                      Does it effect them mentally or physically or both.

How did you try and answer your questions

To find the questions that i wanted to answer i had to use multiple sites. Like Google thats were you can find most of the information but then you have a full list of sites that all contain information i also found one youtube video that gave a pretty good explanation on what Pfeiffers syndrome.

Did you find relevant information to answer your question and cite where you found it.

I found all the information that belonged to my questions some of the information was easier to find than others.


i also found a YouTube video

How did the process go

The story was a little hard to right because you can’t really get creative with it because it’s mostly facts. But it was a cool and more interesting  way to do it righting it as a story.





First people principle of learning.

First people principle of learning.

The First people have very good principles

Image result for first nations principle wheel spirit heart body mind

I chose this photo because it represents a lot of their principals in one photo.

The first principle i looked at was learning takes patience and time. I think that this is a very good principle cause a lot of people now a days just want it then and their right when they want it. When take time to learn it will engrave in your head more which will lead to more information you can tell to other people and patience is one of the best quality a person can have.

The second principle i got was learning involves recognizing the consequences of ones actions. This is a good one to because you can’t just go around blaming other people for what you did. Own up to your own mistakes. in the end you will probably get in less trouble than if you were to blame other people and that’s just not fair on the others person part.

The third one is Learning is embedded in memory, history and story. I think this means that when you learn something it came from somewhere, someone, a place. It never just randomly showed up. All things you learn have a history and a story you just have to dig deeper to find it.

I think are worked is related to some of the First People principles like for our projects if someone didn’t contribute they can own up to it them selfs not have one of the group members tell the teacher. That we couldn’t always find the information we were looking for we just had to have more patients to find what we needed. We all kinda had are own responsibility not everyone would work on the same thing and their always tends to be a leader.

the principles i used to connect with the project was Learning evolves recognizing the consequences of one own actions also  Learning involves patience and time and the last one we used was Learning involves generational roles and responsibility.

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

Image result for dominican republic poverty

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

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.

Image result for element periodic table with names

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

SSEP Fundamental Questions

Fundamental questions

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?

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.
