Inspiration

Our ideal customer is MS students (but also other people) wishing to help the environment and upgrading their lunch card case to be fancier. A lot of people are interested but wishes it to be cheap. We believe it is a feasible idea, but we are wondering if we can make it in large demands. Yeah. Click here for our prototype!

SDG辩论的反思

我们怒力的讨论了一堂课,可是我们最后还是没有达到一个结论。可是呢,在这个辩论时,我看到了好多精彩的表现,也好多没有那么好的点。伍卓逸,我的队友就有一个比较好的表演。他提到 “inflation”,可是不知道在中文怎么说。有一个组想要所有的人都有够钱,可以舒服的生活下去,没有贫穷。可是呢,伍卓逸说的点关于货物膨胀,比如说在委内瑞拉里,它们没钱了,所以想复印更多钱,更有钱一些。可是那,钱那么多,只会把钱的价值降低,直到基本上一块钱什么都不能买。世界上没有呢么多钱给别人,只好复印更多了,所以钱的价值也降低了,所以贫穷的人还是买不了什么。我认为我最想有反驳的点是陈子谦的。他说的是如果我们做更多的学校,可以有教育来准备下一代,这样下一代很聪明,可以把我们现在的问题解决掉。我不同意。只有1/3的人才想学习一些关于外国叫“STEM Education”,比如科学,科技,工程和数学类的教育。别的人选择来学另外一些帮不到我门的东西,比如电影,美术等等。那2/3的钱都会被浪费掉,就因为有写高中生认为他们能当大导演。再说了,那33%还不一定能解决这个问题。现在世界上最聪明的人和领导都不能解决,为什么一个刚出大学的小屁孩就可以把世界变得完美那?就算我们假如该学校会帮助到别的SDG,这个问题已经在为它自己解决了。已经有太多人在概学校了,每天,8,0000更多人会开始被教育。这个问题已经很容易被解决掉,为什么还要努力来为它思想呢?

The Impossible Task

The dark forest we ventured through

It happened again. A new impossible task had arrived. We were sent again to collect more data on the AQI near the dangerous WenYu River. And so we arrived. It was hard, but we managed to persevere through and get the information we needed. This day, however, did not fit into the trend that we expected. Recently, it had been a steady climb of better skies and cleaner air, but this time, it was different. It still looked the same, with the azure sky up above our heads, and the dark forest up ahead on our venture. But as we learned from our data, the air quality was much worse than we’d expected. It skyrocketed to 150 AQI, although the last time we were here the air was much better, around 50 AQI. I think that even though in spring and summer the air is generally better, there are still a lot of unconsidered variables, so as more factories opening, or that there will be international conventions being held so that the air is better with cars being restricted for a day or two.

One Bulb to Save the World 用一个灯来救世界

In this current world where we have almost everything at our fingertips, so we begin to forgo the safety of our world and go right to how we can get the cheapest bed mattresses. In during that, we make an abundance of energy, to just to get the cheapest item, and to get it fast. The Earth can’t take which leads to our world smacking us right on the head, in ways like natural disasters. This is no longer something up to the government, but up to us. That’s why ISB is also helping to tackle this issue. They installed lights that turn off when no one is around, which is nice. It doesn’t just save energy to reduce pollution and help the world, but also saves ISB budget. We need to help this world, and every step matters.

I am the green-shirted guy, being abused by the red-shirted guy who is sitting on me. I am abusing the red-shirted under me, while the grey-shirted girl is abusing all of us. We’re showing the chain of abuse in the supply chains of chocolate production.Looking back on Project ReCharge, I learned more about the human rights that we currently have access to, but others don’t. I didn’t know how and where my products came from. I knew that child labor existed, but not to the scale that most of the objects we use have a small trace of child labor. Like shirts and clothes, where most of its cotton comes from child laborers, and even some are in sweatshops to make these clothes. Before this project, I used to think that most of the everyday items that I use were child labor free. I would waltz into a store and not have guilt in picking up my chocolate. Now, I do. I think about the consequences of biting into the delicious Hershey bar. Sometimes, I still can’t resist, it’s good. But now I reduce my purchases. I spread awareness. I am doing something so that when my taste buds take the better of me, I feel better.

Looking back on Project ReCharge, I realize that we should really be grateful. If we were born into the family in poverty, we may have been toiling to make chocolate, not eating them. Looking at the perspectives of the large corporations, I pity them. They have to balance satisfying his/her company and him/her self, but also how to make his customers happy. Additionally to that, he/she has to make sure their products are child labor free. It’s really hard. With great power comes great responsibility, and if I were them, I wouldn’t be able to pull it off. But they should really put helping the laborers above themselves, and that’s hard, to be more ethical when you can be more satisfied. There are many sides to this issue.

Adventures in the Field

The dark forest where we fought away evil spiders, trying the impossible task of recording the AQI.

The data that we risked our lives for.

 

On a somewhat cold day of March 7th, 2019, a group of brave adventurers consisting of Ethan, Billy, and Aidan ventured out into the cold and perilous unknown. They came back with data, enough to unveil the hidden secrets of the WenYu river. They fought back dangerous spiders, resisted other adventurers and avoided muddy dirt. We found out that near the dangerous rapid river, the AQI was in fact 38 AQI, or 9 PM 2.5. This was similar for the location of the loud and dangerous vehicle that was suspended on a bridge. We crossed under the bridge and found similar results to the river. We then traversed into the dark forest, where the trees whispered death at every corner. We found that the AQI was in fact 42, and the PM 2.5 was 10. We stealthily slinked back to the road in which we arrived, hoping not to awaken the hidden evil. The results were similar to the sylvan forest, and with our findings, we returned. It was very different from last time. The last time we were there, a fog had descended on to forest. The AQI was in fact above hundreds, before it started decreasing in January. The veteran explorer Aidan deduces that the AQI is slowly decreasing, and Billy and Ethan agree. We believe that since in Winter, more people are using heaters, the AQI is worse, and in the return of Summer, heat has returned to combat the evil darkness of AQI. Our story will continue next month, where we set off again to fight against this evil.

MY DAY

During Ignite Week – Express It!, I created a piece of art that depicts my day on Tuesday, Feb 12th, 2019.  To complete this project, I completed my art, with different panels that show my different classes and time of the day, like the bus ride home for example. I also recorded my drawing time in a video, and I used that to create a Behind the Scenes video. During the process, I learned that I am not good at drawing, hehe. However, my process was enjoyable and my day is unique and special.

The L21 area that I focused on was “My product is well-crafted, striking, designed with a distinct style but still appropriate for the purpose.” I made a lovely comic, and it is an accurate description of Feb 12th, 2019. To meet my goals in this area, I worked hard, and I drew over the course of 2 days, with each panel defining a part of my life. For example, in the second row of the panels, it depicts my morning routine. My skills are improved for future drawing comics, and this Ignite Week has really helped me show MY DAY and how I am quite unique and different and who I am.

I will use the materials known as the Holy Invention of the Mechanical Pencil. I also use rulers and erasers to help me illustrate my masterpiece, my awesome life. I need the skills of being able to draw, and you can always improve on that. I draw, well fairly well, but my comic has turned out… under expectations. Perhaps I am used to drawing the goblins and dragons of the imaginary world, and not ordinary things like humans and furniture. But nonetheless, I am still enjoying this endeavor and continue to shape it into the way I want it to be. I plan to get inspiration from drawers near me, like Jun and Julian but also professionals, who work on graphic images for a living. I hope this will let me achieve spiritual enlightening with my pen and my mind.


Using this feedback that I received, I will add labels and captions to the different times of the day to further ensure that I am captivating my audience, and making sure they understand what I mean to show and express.

Narcissism does not exist in my dictionary

I want to create an artistic masterpiece that is quite amazing to marvel at with your eyes, but also recounts a generic day from my life, so that future me can reflect or use this to make myself a better person, or just simply see what I was doing when I was just a little boy in 7th grade. I hope to learn more about myself and expose and bring light to the little details and things we do that may normally seem mundane and typical, but each day is new and unique. I want to make sure that my comic looks nice, and not some gibberish slop. I don’t want to capture every single moment of my life, but still let my audience know about MY life, MY day, and how I AM AWESOME!
