Theater Design

 

This design is mostly pointing to a percentage of Asian families that does not give the right for their children to do their interests and letting them go to different classes in multiple times.

Throughout this design, the first thing that the audience will be seeing mainly will be the girl that was sitting in the middle of the stage or the two giant hands that connected to the chair. The girl in the middle is representing the child; she was made out of cardboard paper. First, I drew the girl on the cardboard. Next, I cut down the girl; then I stacked her on to the chair that she was sitting on. The two hands that were stacked on to the back of the stage is representing the mother and father of this family, they are both holding the string that was connected to the chair, which for this part I drew the two hands on the newspaper, because the whole stage of this stage is in a brown color, so the newspaper is more likely to be shown on the stage. After finished the cutting, I stacked the two hands on the top of the back of the scene; then it can be reflecting clearly. For the overall of the stage I used the dark brown to paint the ground, black for the background, and gold for the curtain that depicted on the backstage. To be clear to show the understanding of this scene I used a black marker to write words that are symbolizing about the situation of this family.

The overall of my design was successful, the stage was created as what I am expecting, and the meaning of this stage was displayed clearly. Next time I would like to have my design to get more materials on it and make it look prettier.

What is this engineering task?

Creating a toy that should be very useful for everyone, and by showing the energy transfer on this toy.

What are you thinking about doing?

Creating a toy by using two neodymium magnets, copper coil, and two strong ferromagnets, to generate light by putting a bulb in the middle of this project. This is a toy that is using the Magnetoelectricity to create energy and form light energy.

Embed images and links of ideas you like/don’t want?

 

Analyze those ideas: what are the pros/cons about those ideas?

  1. The project can be moving by itself
  2. This is a good toy for kids
  3. it can save energy

Blog 2:

Model your idea – sketch using multiple perspectives: label measurements, materials, fasteners/adhesives & techniques needed for construction

1.two neodymium magnets

2.copper coil

3.two strong ferromagnets

4.one or more bulbs

Make a plan for time and check/bring materials

Day 1:

  • Start the first part of this project (stick the two CDs by using three wooden sticks, and immobilize the rubber band between the two CDs)
  • Get the materials to organize

Day 2:

  • Start to test the project
  • If the first trial doesn’t work, then try to find out the problem
  • Do another one to see if it works

Day 3:

  • finish the second one
  • Test the second project

Day 4:

  • Take videos and take picture
  • Do blog posts

Blog 3:

Take at least 2 pictures every class of your prototypes Shows testing (through video)


Reflect on how the process is going

  • The process was doing fine, but there was still some mistakes and problems during the engineering part. I did two of the projects, which is two versions of it, the first one was immobilized by three wooden sticks, and the second one was immobilized by two cardboards. As I tested all of the trials, I noticed that the smaller version is faster and more fluent than the bigger version.

Gather feedback from others

  • It is not stable
  • it doesn’t work very often
  • the rubberband will always break

Show improvements to your design

  • I found a more durable rubber band, and it worked better than before
  • Added more hot glue to make it more sturdy

Blog 4:

Show your final product through photos and/or video

Explain how it works/doesn’t work using scientific terminology Explain the areas you were

  • It works by spinning the rubberband and create potential energy.
  • It is not working very well is because the rubber band is too thin.

successful in the product/process

Overall of this project is okay, it had shown the potential energy clearly, and also it ran fast and efficiently to move. By this project, the process had taught me how potential energy can make a thing make progress.

Elevator pitch

The Elevator speech went ok for me, I found it very hard giving eye contact and not being very relax during he speech, and the speech was too short, I said all the things too fast or I didn’t give too much information in the speech, but the overall was good.

Chinese Culture Revolution in simple English

http://isbtube.isb.bj.edu.cn/video/The-Great-Proletarian-Cultural-Revolution-in-Plain-English/90c5585265d4139d2e7cee8b0ce8ecd9

After learning about the Chinese Culture Revolution with Mr.Fidler, hard and difficult, our group had create this Chinese Revolution video. Based on the learning in two weeks. The video was showing how Mao lead through the Chinese Revolution, and how the people thought about him. we had used four turning points to show the Revolution, turning point one was 1967 Red Guards went wild (from the country side) school reopened, second turning point was Liu Xiao Qi run away from the Chinese Cultural Proletarian Party, third turning point was The four olds, and the fourth turning point was When the gang of four control the power of the Communist Party. these turning points shows how the Mao started the revolution, and how he ended up the revolution. in These two weeks I learned about how brave was Mao and I was proud about what he did for China, but there are still things that Mao did wrong during the Chinese Revolution.

Blog post 3 (Before I Fall)

I chose the main picture for a darker color and the background for a warmer color, because the story was telling a popular girl in school was going to a party, but after the party she lost her life in a traffic accident, when she woke up she found out she was living on the same day again, she doesn’t understand why she was living in the same day , She trys to change the day different to see if it let the time keep going, but it didn’t work, so then she was struggling through all the days she had been in (in the same day), after all the things she disgoverd and thought she finally found out the  reason why she lived in one day and understoods life was so beautiful, and that is why I chose a warm color for the background. The texts on the book cover were telling the feelings of the main character so it can let the readers understand the book more clearly and make the book more interesting.
