"I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious" - Albert Einstein

I made the video about the inner and outer air pollution. I included about the meaning about the air pollution, comparing about the inner and outer, solutions about how we can stop the air pollution, and etc.  The mood of almost videos which is the theme is the air pollution is very serious. However, my video’s mood is the serious It is a little bit fun. So some people might don’t like my video because of the mood of the video is not similar with other videos. However, during making my video, I want to ask a question to other people. “Do you think about the future? What do you think about it?” If you think about the future negative way, this means we have many things to fix in this world. Almost, people think about the future negetively because of many reasons. (Air pollution, political, economical, etc. ) We have to try to fix the reasons that making the world negatively and try to fix it for the next generation.

My biggest obstacles were a lot of things. One thing was doing coding. Making a coding wasn’t easier than I thought, so I have to struggle a lot. We thought doing coding was just a stick the machine inside of the box. However, my expectation was not correct. To stick the machine, I have to make a frame to put the machine in there. The making coding was one thing but to do coding I have to many things to support that. The another problem was the size. The size of the bat was big, so to take bat in house, we had to divide the bat into two pieces. (Head and body..) Taking home and take back to the school weren’t easy task. The last one was the time. During making robot, many cases were occur same time. The trip, resting days, etc. For the trip, my partner and I weren’t in same line of classes, so we can’t work together for 2 periods. I thought that wan’t that big problem but after the trip, I noticed that there wasn’t many times to spend by making robot. These obstacles provided a lot of panic to me but it gave me challenge too.

 

Skills that I leaned or developed were how to make coding, how to think about the steps of making robot, and many things. In my past school, I learned how to do the coding, so the coding was a little bit familiar to me. However, making a coding wasn’t that challenging but make to fit the coding inside of the robot was a lot of challenge to us. To fit the coding inside, we had to think about many ways how to fit the coding inside of the robot. We thought about making some floor inside of the robot, using wood sticks to make the machines still. Also, when teacher said about the making robot, I thought it was very hard to do and it is impossible thing to do. However, when we brainstormed first, we thought about the animal what are we going to make, the procedures that we have to step one by one, and many various materials that we have to use for robot. During preparing that things, I developed about challenging things that I have never did before. The most developed thing was collaboration and communication with other partner. The materials in the design class weren’t only for us, so we had to share with other people in class. Also, to make better robot, we have to collaborate with each partners. Matching thinking, opinions look easy to do it but it wasn’t that easy. To match our opinions we have to communicate with partner and talk together. I think ability that collaboration with partner develop a lot.

 

One thing I like to change is the type of animal. This is because making a bat was interesting but I want to make another animal too. I wanted to import the many different sensor in it but in the bat, we don’t have that opportunities to put the sensor in it. If there is another chance that I can make other animal, I want to make bird. This is because I want to make the bird’s wings. To make that I can use the real feathers to decorate the wings. Because I have many ideas of decorating and making bird, I want to have change that making another robot with partner. (making bat was great too because it gave me a lot of impact and thinking about making robot.)

Capstone Film

In this project, I made the movie about the air pollution. The title is the ‘There is no safe place’ To make this movie, first, I have to think about what am i going to do. After finishing that, I made the introduction and conclusion of the movie. Then, I thought about the resources that i need and I downloaded it. (After downloaded it, I wrote the URL in conclusion.) I put the pictures, titles, and resources one by one with matching my ideas. After finish putting the pictures, I started editing the pictures. I add some videos, sounds effect, and background musics. Then I had to include the narration. I recorded my voice and change the sound of the voice. (Tone1 up) Lastly, I rechecked my video many times. These processes were very hard to do but after finishing my movie, I was very proud of myself because this was first time making video. My video is about inner & outer air pollution. In the video, I compared both air pollution and argue my thinking about the air pollution. I wish my video can give realization to other people.

Making process

1. Put 150 gram glue ml into the bicker.

2. Add 100gram of corn starch

3. Mix with 50gram of guar gum

4. Plus 50ml of borox

5. Mix a lot until the polymers stick together.

6. Take the polymer out and mix by using hands.

7. Put on to the edge of the table and see it works.

The polymer which makes by using that process was the best. When I put on to the edge of the table, I can see it sticks properly. Also, I squeeze it, crash it, and roll a lot. After these tests, I can see it is the best thing about our theme. That polymer can stick of the edge properly, squeezed and crashed easily. When I rolled it, it rolled round shape and feeling was smooth. Because of these reasons, I can say this polymer is the best polymer in our theme and project.  (We add the borox very carefully because we suggested that borox is very important in making the polymer. Borox helps to make the polymers stick together but if we add too much, the polymers will be like rock, so we can’t squeeze and stick it on the edge. ) I think this polymer is the best because of the characteristic of this polymer. It fells like slime but helpful to people to protect their skin by sticked on the edge.

When you use our polymers, you will have many benefits. The first one is you can protect your or your children’s legs. When you put the polymers on the edge, you can protect your legs when you hit your legs on the edge. The next reason is very educational. This is because the polymer feels like slime and it can transform into the another shape. Children like to make something by moving their hands, so when you give them a slime, they will learn about the polymer and have some fun with playing by using their hands.

To make the polymer by including theme, first, we thought about how the polymer helps to people. So we suggested like these. “Protecting the human skin? How about making safe slime? Or help to make variety things?” We talked about many types of ‘Safety’ slime. Finally, we chose the slime which protect the sharp part, so children can’t get hurts. (These are the precess that we thought about our theme)  When you buy our polymers, you will get many benefits. You will feel safe about your children and yourself. This polymer can protect your safety skin. It helps to escape from your hurting skins. Also, by playing with this polymer, you will get many impacts of educational. It helps children to get interested about the slime and make fun of them, so using mass media time will decrease. That means decrease percentages of health problems. The price of this polymer is 5yuan for one polymer. If you have problem on your polymer, we will pay for your cost or exchange into another polymer.

(The sustainability of this polymer is not sure  but it will stick for few days or few fours. Because in a few hours, it can flow down to the ground, so have to wait until it is dry. However, if you don’t like our polymers,  have problems, or have another questions, please call me. We will cost back your pay or exchange your polymers.)

 

Polymers #4

Today, we prepared for Friday, presentation. We filmed about our polymer’s advertisement. We included about our polymer’s advantages and acted with matching our theme. (safety) After taking our films, we thought about our polymer’s disadvantages. To make better, I think it has to have a little water in it because it was so sticky, so it might stick into the clothes. Also, the time that stick on the edge was too short. To protect the sharp parts for a long time, it has to stick for a long time. These are too difficult because it has to be in middle level. Not too watery, sticky but it has to be a little bit sticky and watery. I observed our team’s polymers for a long time, then I thought how make it much better than before? The answer was try again and again. We thought about our polymer’s design advantages. The advantages were the variety of colors, and the variety of shapes. It will be useful to educating children too by using the polymers because children like making things. And the polymers can change into many shapes, so parents can use for children’s education. Of course! It is not that dangerous because we use glue, water, guar gum, etc. After thinking that, we tested our polymers one more time. We bounced to the floor, squeezed it, roll it forward and backward. The final polymers were not bad. The only thing about bad thing was it doesn’t stick for a long time. Due to Friday, I will try to improve our polymers by making or mixing another things.

Polymers 3

Our team’s theme is ‘safety’ about polymer. Because of this theme, we decided to make a polymer which can protect the sharp parts of the desk, door, etc. So we tried to make a polymer which little bit sticky and watery because it has to stick on the desk for a long time. After making a right polymer, we had an another problem. The problem was about the shape. The shape of polymers have to look good to make people to buy it. For example, if we make a frame to make a shape of polymers, people would like to buy it because children like pretty or interesting shape. Also, it could helps to design the house well. The polymer has to be soft that people don’t feel hurt when you hit it. I think also, it has to bounce well because it means it can protect the people by bouncing them. After testing bouncing, sticking on the edge, feeling about polymer, and can protect the human skin, we decided to make a frame to make the polymer prettier. Also, we have to improve the feeling and sticking ability about the polymers. The polymers have to stick for a long time but ours are falling down a little bit. Because of that we thought we have to make similar way but little differently to make better. However, we develop more than before when we made first time. At first time, we didn’t know how to make polymers, so we just mixed everything non sense. However, after trying and trying, we knew how to make softer, stickier, and more bounce. When contrast with our first experiment, i think we improved a lot. To make much better polymers, we will try many other ways to make appropriate ‘Safety’ polymers

Polymer 2

Our group’s making purpose is for safety. To use polymers safety, we decided using by protecting sharp parts. For instance, on the desk, door, etc. This idea is useful to young children in house. Because of this benefit, we are targeting to adult who have young children. This is because all parents worry about their children, so they want to prevent bad situations to them. Our polymers could help parent’s hop because it will make more safety. When you use the polymers, you will not worry about your children that crush toward the sharp parts. Also, we thought about ‘How about make a variety types of colors, so children can choose it?’ To accept this opinion, we mixed a lot of color and we decided to make a frame to make children what ever they want. Like clay.

The specific design which we made in class time is this.

During making this one, we thought about how we can make a little bit stikky that can put on the edge of the desk, so the amounts of Borox was important to decide that.  We didn’t put borox a lot at a one time. We mix a little bit many times. Also, the color changed a lot because of the amounts of the color liquid. So we mixed many times with variety forms.

We tried a lot of times to make a polymers. After a lot of time, we experienced the benefits about this polymer. We stretched it, bounce it, attach on the edge of the desk, and consider about how to make it again in next time.

 

Characterization

When you wake up, you are in the dark. You can’t see anything. You struggle to get out of that weird place but nothing happens. A few minutes later, you can see a light was coming down to you. Finally, when you arrive, there are a lot of people looking you. That was the start of this incredible story, “The Maze Runner” by James Dashner. Many people were already in that place and next to that place, there was a maze. This is the story about struggling to get out of that maze.  After reading the story, I think that the character Minho has many advantages in many directions. There are many other characters but I will introduce about ‘Minho’ because he makes lots of good friends and has power to survive in the maze.

Minho has ability in many perspectives.  In the story (pg: whole of the story..), Minho is a ‘Runner’ who get into the maze and search exit. To be a ‘Runner’, have to have a higher intelligence because they have to memorize a lot of route in the maze. In this part, we can know his brain in smart and intelligent. When (pg:111, ..but then two forms took shape, stumbling along the alley toward the Door. His eyes finally focused through the initial blindness of fear, and he realized it was Minho, with one of Alby’s arms draped across his shoulders, practically dragging the boy along behind him. ) Minho and another character (Alby) were in the maze but the gate of the maze was closing. Alby got injured by the monster in the maze. To survive, Minho can run away from the maze but he didn’t. He tried to save Alby, so he pulled Alby to the Gate.

Although, they can’t get out of the maze, I think Minho has a responsibility about friends by looking that evidence. About his looks, I can expect he can have  new clothes but it didn’t have much. Mostly, he will wearing old clothes. Because in the story (pg202, “Just drop a not in the Box, and there she goes. Doesn’t mean we always get what we want from the Creators, sometimes we do, sometimes we don’t), people in that place said the stuffs for people come when they send a note in the box. It is not commonly coming up, so his clothes can be old one. Also, he has to run all over the place (Because he is Runner.)

Minho fights when some person said wrong things or disagree his opinions or someone said bad about his friends. In page(pg161, ..Minho said in a calmer voice, “you’re nothing but a sissy who has never, not once, asked to be a Runner or tried out for it. You don’t have the right to talk about things you don’t understand. So shut your mouth” Gally stood up again, fuming. “Say one more thing like that and I’ll break your neck, right here in front of everybody”), he fought with Gary because he thought Gary alleged wrong things. Gary alleged that some person has to die because he against the first rule in that place but Minho thought that person were trying to save Alby, so punishing is nonsense. Because their opinions were different they fought a lot. About his behaviors, I can expect that he fought a lot when he thinks it is wrong.

We can expect his personality is good by looking his behaviors. For instance, Minho tried to save his friends and take care of friends if that friends is good person.(pg:207..”No, we’re just training you-…) Minho ran everyday in the maze to get out of the maze. Because his a lot of actions, people could get hint to get out of that maze. Every time, he ran a lot , help other people, and use his brain to get out. If he wasn’t in that place, I think people couldn’t get out of the maze.

Polymers are the large molecule.  To make the polymers, many small molecules, monomers, have to be combined with each others. The natural polymers made from many types of amino acid monomer units. For instance, if I mixed with polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) and borax, they become a slime because by mixing them together, they create the cross-links between polymer chains. There are four types of polymers. They are thermoplastics, thermosets, elastomers, and synthetic fibers.  Ex) Synthetic polymers are the polymers that human made. For instance, which is people include the materials together and mixed, and made the synthetic polymers. The examples of synthetic polymers are nylon, polyethylene, polyester, etc. There are four types of polymers.  About the polymers, the synthetic materials come from the raw materials. (Such as petroleum based chemicals or petrochemicals.

There are two types of materials for the polymers. There are the natural resources, and the synthetic materials. They have different things with each other. The natural resources found in the nature but the synthetic materials are formed in the lab. (By human) Also, in the natural resources, there are wood and sand, and about the synthetic materials, there are nylon, polyethylene, polyester, etc. Those two types of materials have relationship with each other. Synthetic products are made from the natural resources. This means that if we don’t have the natural resources, we can’t make the synthetic products.

Health Unit (PE)

If people search wrong ways to solve problems cause more bad situations. So getting good information or searching good websites are very important. After getting good informations, the people who get hurts can improve their health and personality and become getting more better mental. But getting bad informations can make the patients personality and mental more weaker than before. To make them safe or getting relax, searching and getting good websites are very important.
