Mutation Story

How does cancer start well humans bodies are made up of 100 million million cells. It starts when just one of all those cells begins to grow and multiply too much. they multiply so much that the Bodie cannot control the growth. this growth is called a tumour and can be very dangerous. de pending on the type of cancer you have it can travel through the blood stream. If too much pressure is put on the tumour and it is close to a muscle such as the brain. Cancer is primarily evident in older people but it is somewhat random kids get cancer all the time. For example “In the UK in 2012-2014, on average each year half (50%) of cases were diagnosed in people aged 70 and over”

what are some symptoms of cancer?

  • Bowel changes. Bowel changes.
  • Rectal bleeding. Rectal bleeding.
  • Urinary changes. Urinary changes.
  • Blood in your urine. Blood in your urine.
  • Persistent back pain. Persistent back pain.
  • Unusual coughing. Unusual coughing.
  • Testicular lumps. Testicular lumps.


Hello I an cancer I am terrible, sure I just one cell but I multiply fast and guess what I WONT DIE. well Sure you can try but it won’t be easy your feel terrible and sick, you will lose all of your hair and be weak. I am the worst thin to happen to Henry oh ya I am starting to grow in Henrys leg. Henry doesn’t no it yet and his mom says its ‘growing pains’ but no its something much worse… me. a while later henrys mom takes him to the hospital and the doctors give henrys parents the bad news, I’m in town. So hey decides to get chemo and fight me well that kill some of me but ass soon as I get big enough I choose where to go. the radiation has shrunk me and now they will try to give Henry surgery and remove me well they took some but not all. a mont goes by and I’m back they repeat the radiation and sth surgery and then I am finally gone. but you better hope I don’t come back and or set up home In side of a fried or family member because I touch everyone.


The reason I chose Cancer as my mutation to do a project on is because I have bee personal touched my cancer multiple times. and wether we like it or not it will eventually effect our lives. Cancer is so common and so quick to ruin lives for that reason cancer is one of the worst mutations.


Principles Of Learning

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.



Artifacts of learning Engineering Brightness

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.

My Environmental Interactions

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.

CBL engineering brightness proposal

The pictures below are some pictures of our second Skype chat. In the pictures we are talking to another school and they’re showing off their designs that they have done in the past the designs are for a head mounted light.img_2559 img_2560

During both calls we talked about similar things. When we were talking to the Dominican Republic we were more concerned on talking about there conditions and needs. We also discussed when and how much electricity they had. With that information we made questions to ask the group that had already worked on a similar project. we asked them what worked  (hand crank) and they said that they tried it and most of them broke. We also asked about fundraising. it interested me that we were helping people that don’t have as much electricity as we do, but we also get to learn new things. I really liked the experience of being able to talk to the groups in different countries over Skype.


Some of our ideas were shot down like the hand cranknowledge but we are also thinking of using kinetic energy to powered the lights. another thing that I saw that I can improve  upon would be the size of the lightsignificance walls. I saw on the original light the walls were very thick so not as much like could get through but in my improved design I will make it so the walls are thinner than the original light. To Aid me in this process I am in the drafting InDesign 10 as one of my electives and mr. Chang has been helping us through the process.

SSEP Reflection


So the quest that we sought out to solve was “do chemical reactions happen the same way in micro-gravity as theyou do on earth.”


To find our experiment we researched for almost a week. we found allot of not so great experiments and some great ones.


Maybe if our experiment were chosen and there was a Difrence in our results we could have done more experiments with similar chemicals to maybe even create medicine or other useful objects.

Disign & Deliver

Our SSEP story started when Mr.  Robinson told us to write on a sheet of paper what type of experiment you would like to do and how motaved you were. I thought that was a great system. After that we joined together and   Immediately started working  on ideas. We had lots of fun working on the project I will always remember it.

Working on SSEP

Working on SSEP


Over all I think that we did a good job; but we could have improved our proposal and our use of school time.

Science app review

The app that I am going to review is YouTube but more specifically the science channels like cody’s lab, ASAP SCIENCE, MinutePhysics, SmarterEveryday and a lot more science channels.

Question: how many devices are it on.

Answer: it’s on every device with internet connection and a search engine. Or you can download the app on almost everything.

Question: does it cost money.

Answer: no it is free, but you can choose to buy YouTube red which has some extra features like you can listen while your phone is in sleep mode.

Question: can the app help you learn in different ways.

Answer: yes all sorta of people have rad Chanel’s for all sorts of things.
