I think that the biggest problem was to actually make the trick shots, sometimes we didn’t make any trick shots in a block, so we stayed after school to work on the trick shots, we stayed after school twice.
If we could do something different, it would be to get more camera angles, then it would make our shots look cooler, also sometimes the ball would go out of the shot.
Our inspiration is a Youtube channel called Dude Perfect, they have over 40 million subscribers and they are extremely popular.
We first started dude imperfect after a soccer practice, me and Alex started trying to make trick shots, and we called ourselves dude imperfect.
We did not expect our trick shots to be that hard but it turned out that the trick shot took a long time to make.
We split our trick shots into different categories by the type of sports, basketball, soccer, football, and badminton.

I hope that the outcome of this ignite week will be a entertaining video.
<——————- This is our list of trick shots that we could do
Our plan is to edit as we do the trick shots so it won’t be too much work on one day.
One of my strength as a collaborator is that I can plan short-term and long-term goals for my team so they can work efficiently and effectively.
I helped my team stay on task and keep us going in one direction so we worked towards a common goal for the day or for the week, this helped us work as a team.
One thing that I could improve on is to be more aware of our due dates. For example, we were late for blog post 5 because we thought that blog post 5 wasn’t due on the day it was supposed to be due, and that made us loose some money.
I learned 1)How to print different images on both sides of the card 2)We don’t have to make a card that’s really big 3)How logn it took to make one card.
I wonder 1)If we will make enough cards before Monday (First Sale) 2)Is there a more efficient way to print?
One thing that I will improve about our prototype is that our font got a little bit messed up.
In ISB, we always try to be more sustainable with our energy usage. But there are always places where we can improve. In the picture above, we can see lots of unnecessary lights on the ceiling of the Middle and High School cafeteria. In this picture, almost every square meter of the lights are covered in lights. I know we humans are afraid of the dark, but we don’t need that much lights! These lights provide at least 3 square meters worth of light, probably even more! If we put one light in every 3 square meter, we would save so much light and help our sustainable goals. Think about it, what are the negative effects? A little darker? Good riddance if you ask me! I hope ISB will see this and change the light usage, thanks for reading.
Looking back on Project ReCharge, I realize that child labor is a big problem (though I already knew that), but I always felt that I really can’t do anything about child labor just because I don’t have a lot of power. This also ties into what we learned in humanities this project: different types of government and also freedom of speech. As I said, I can’t contribute that much, but in ISB, I can voice my thoughts to people who have power like Dr. Hill, Mr. Hurworth etc. can listen to me and act and make a change. But in some places, you can’t voice your thoughts freely, and that is limited freedom of speech, meaning that you can’t say anything.
I think that considering different viewpoints is good because (in the risk of sounding very cliché), nobody is perfect. If I was wrong and I considered someone else’s viewpoint, I might see why that person is right and have a better idea. Even if I was right about something, considering someone else’s viewpoint is still important because that person might have a good idea, or maybe because of some reason that you were not aware of. In science, we learned about different types of rocks (metamorphic, sedimentary, and igneous) and how they are made. We also learned about volcanoes and tectonic plates and studied their patterns.
All in all, I think that Project ReCharge was the best project yet!
