Wahoo’s LIFE

April 24th, 2015

 

What if the toughest guy you know suddenly gets serious injures and you need to take care of him? In the book called “CHOMP” there has the character named Mickey Cray who gets injured by the falling lizard and his son, Wahoo, needed to take care of him. Wahoo is the kind and responsible kid, who always blame himself and admit his mistake and tries to fix it.

Polymer project final journal entry

Final journal entry

Our product Keyboarder was a success. Keyboard cleaner worked successfully cleaning the keyboard. However there had some difficulty that we had to face. First was our product was really easy to get dirty. So once we used the Keyboarder to clean the nasty stuff it gets really dirty and the customer need to take the dirty stuff off by themselves.

We didn’t really have many final changes to our product however we did try making a product with different ingredients. It was hard to make a polymer that we wanted: sticky and stretchy. However from many tries we got the final product that wasn’t bad.

At the last day of the polymer project we presented our group’s product and shared ideas. Many groups were amazing and also we needed to evaluate the groups except for our own group. The hardest part of evaluating was that I could not give my friends the harsh score. However the evaluation went well because I thought that every group deserved 4, which is the best.

This project was fun but still helpful. This polymer project was just right project to finish the chemistry unit. The best parts was making our own polymer and share it to others.

I have been planning on making protection on cars to prevent car accidents. However, I changed my mind. Instead I am going to make a keyboard cleaner that can be reused and be washed. It can work with anything such as piano, computer and so on. The problem is that there have no certain polymer that is right for our project. We need polymer that is sticky enough to clean the dust but stretchy so it can fit anywhere. So we choose to work with two different polymer that has different features. One would be superslime and other would be gloop. Superslime is not sticky but stretchy and gloop is sticky but not stretchy. However, the real problem was that the gloop and superslime wouldn’t mix together. We kept squeezing but it did not work. So we thought of how about we put all the things we need to make for gloop and superslime and mixed it together before it gets a shape? The result was not good. It did not work but we made a improvement that it mixed better than before.

My own polymer would be used to cover the car and prevent the car crashes. These days we are having so much trouble with car crashes. This polymer would impact our world by able to prevent car crashes and deaths. Be able car to not break while car crashes polymer should be really bounce, soft and stretchable. We have 2 kinds of polymers. We have polymer that is bouncy but the stretchable and we have polymer that is soft and stretchable but not bouncy. If I use one that bouncy but not soft and stretchable I will need tones of it and whether the car crashes with or without the polymer that is not bouncy the car would still break. If I use one that is not bouncy but soft and stretchable I won’t need to make tones of it but it is still not bouncy. So I thought of combining both of the polymer and have every qualities I need for the polymer.

Everything you see is not always the truth

Everything you see is not always everything. Fire on the background represents the shown part and the hidden part. Bright color flame is the shown part. People can easily see the Bright flame. However, the dark flame is the hidden part where it is hard to see. People only see the shown part and tell what they think and figured out. However, in many other situations, only by looking at the shown part would not able to make you solve the problem. Mostly the dark part tells the truth but people do not want to find the dark side because it is hard to find.

In Scat written by Carl Hiaasen, there was a terrible accident. There was a fire made by someone when students were having a field trip. The fire went off thankfully however; one of the teacher was missing. Police interview every single students and found nothing. Student nicknamed Smoke was the most suspected criminal. He had many accident related with fire. Everyone suspected Smoke. Theme of this book is that everything you see is not always everything. Students gathered the information they have seen and guessed who made the fire. However, Smoke had nothing to do with the accident. Two students went deeper with the fire incident and found the dark part of the issue. Those two found out that it wasn’t Smoke who made the fire. It was the people who wanted the panther. At the end people who made the fire were arrested.
