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.)

 

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.

Science (Watching video and write answer.)

Part 2

 

Also, there are 78billions of stars in galaxies. Only one galaxy, there are many types of stars in it. I think galaxy is a huge and mysterious place. That human can’t know all.

I think there is a life out in space. Because the space is too large and there are many places that people don’t know about it. Maybe, in the other stars there can be other tribes of animals or creatures.

One Day Just Dance (grade 8)

I am thinking about doing pop dance. I got inspiration from the youtube.  (Watching many different dances. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKrD8FHc4vY) = (link)and same dance other video. I decided to do this songs because I like this songs and I think showing this songs could be good. I get dancing process from a lot of videos about ‘Lucky strike’ and ‘In the name of love’ I am glad I could show these songs.  But I was afraid a lot that ‘Will people like my dance?” And I am still afraid now too../–;;;/  Because I have to dance a lone!!!( Oh my god!)

First time, I didn’t know I have to do presentation, so I regret a lot. But now, I think it is a good experience that I can do something else. Learning in the ‘Just Dance’, I think everyone like the music, dance. And they were doing their best, so they make me feel proud. *^^* I hope I will do my best and have exciting about this program. I think I practice a lot because I practiced in my house. (Not that much..) One day is important because it is a chance that doing something else. For example, like cooking, dancing, rock climbing and other kind. I think audience will like this show and I hope everyone having excitement.
