2 Art Pieces Project – Analyse

For the 2 Art Pieces Project, I have decided to use the drawing below called brushes. https://turtleart.org/gallery/index.html                       When we examine the code, we can see that there are only two columns of code. The one on the left is the main program and the […]

Engineering 4–Reflect and Share

The car is meant to be a toy that can show the transfer of energy. With the battery, it represents the chemical energy and is also the only potential energy source with the battery powering all the other features on this car. For kinetic energy, there are many forms of kinetic energy represented in this […]

Kinetic Sculpture Reflection

                  Scratch Project: For my first part of the project, we had to create a Scratch file of the actors and motion that would be in the build. Because I was commemorating the World Scholars Cup, I decided to use alpacas (not llamas) as my actors. For my […]

Engineering: Learning Toy

I’ll provide a toy/learning tool that will both at the same time act as a miniature car but at the same time also teach about different types of potential and kinetic energy through a circuit with an Arduino board. I will show a battery and a solar panel powering an Arduino board which then powers a […]

Band Practice Routine

This year in band, I believe that the one aspect I should improve upon is finger dexterity on the saxophone. Songs like Minimalist Dances and Lord Tullamore contain fast, non-stop rhythms. This made it challenging for me to push down the correct notes at the right time since I had to quickly transition into the […]

In this project, I focused on the topic of migrant education where migrant children in cities are not receiving an adequate education. I have learned much about my topic from research such as learning that […]

(Parabolas+Quadratics) • Catapults = Catapult Project

Module 4 in Algebra 1 exposes us students to a new world of quadratics. We learn different forms of writing equations for parabolas such as standard form and vertex form to memorizing the quadratic formula. The catapult project is one of the projects in the module where we have to build a catapult and calculate […]
