Day One Simulation Reflection-Ancient Mesopotamia


During the activity, I personally was the law enforcer, this job was very interesting as I got to evaluate what crimes match with the reasonable punishments, and I learned about the different crimes that could be committed. Such as Murder, Manslaughter, Mayhem, Common assault aka assault, battery, and assault with intent to rob.

As a group, we divided the workload up by having us architect Dylan design the temple, have Julia and Lily do the trading and language of our society and have me to be the law enforcer. We choose to divide the work up like this because trading and language are especially important to society as this intellectual experience will help us thrive in the future. Whereas, architecture and law all depend on the trade of our society.

Our biggest accomplishment as a civilization was having such a huge surplus for architecture this occurred since Julia and Lily traded and bargained for the materials.

Our weakest point as a civilization was how we did not collaborate, instead, we worked separately which I thought was less efficient.

If I could do this activity again, I would work together as a group instead of separately.

The Amazing Hutong Adventures

Picture or video of the final product:

What you decided to do and why:

I decided to do The Amazing Hutong Adventures because when I was small I would always eat the Szechuan Food that my grandpa prepared for me, but now that he has passed away I want to re-create that feeling by cooking the dishes by myself. Also, I have a strong sense of connection to the Chinese culture so I want to explore more about the Chinese culture and create the dishes.

What did you do well?

I am most proud of the dishes that my team made because they were prepared, designed, and cooked by our team.  I am also most proud of what I learned about Chinese tea and why they go through the process of tea celebration. I also did very well with designing a tea package for my tea leaves.

What did you learn?

I learned how to cook three Szechuan dishes. The three amazing and delicious were, Shui Zhu Niu Rou (Sichuan Style Boiled Beef), Douchi Caihua (Stir-fried cauliflower with black beans), and Sichuan Ji si Liang Mian (Sichuan Noodle Salad With Chicken). I also learned about the Chinese Tea Ceremony, and why they go through this long process.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them:

Some of the challenges were communicating and collaborating with my peers and teammates because at some point we were arguing over who did what job, additionally, we were having trouble deciding how much chili we were supposed to put in the dishes. We overcame this by coming up with a compromise by having one dish spicy and the other un-spicy or less spicy.

Why is OneDay important

One day is very important for us because it is a day where we can pursue our hobbies and dreams by working and collaborating with a team. In the end, we had a sense of huge accomplishment and also learned a lot about cultures during the process of this day. It is also important because it is a day when we can learn without actually going to core classes. More like a day where we can learn all subjects in one activity.


What is Sichuan?

Sichuan is a province in southwest China occupying most of the Sichuan Basin and the easternmost part of the Tibetan Plateau between the Jinsha River on the west, the Daba Mountains in the north, and the Yungui Plateau to the south. Sichuan’s capital city is Chengdu. The population of Sichuan stands at 81 million.

Funerary Processes in the Egypt Civilization

This is a project that Aidan, Bill, and I have worked on for the past few weeks. During this process, we learned about the inventions and innovations of our civilization and with that information we planned, made, and edited this iMovie. Hope you enjoy it!

What are the advantages of living close to the river?

Water is “a colorless, transparent, odorless, liquid which forms the seas, lakes, rivers, and rain and is the basis of the fluids of living organisms.”  But was it better for people to live close to or farther away from the river? It is better for humans to live nearer to the river because water helped support the main civilizations, provided a wider variety of food to the people who lived near the river, and provided additional water to the plants and animals who lived near it. Water helped support the main civilizations because their waters provided places to hunt and fish. Also, as the rivers flooded, the lands around them became fertile. This allowed them to support farming. Since the land along the rivers is fertile, then crops can be grown. Animals can also be raised if there is enough food and water for them. People learned that they could stay in one place and grow enough food to feed their community if they were near a water supply since they had a surplus of food. That is why it is better for humans to live nearer to the river.

AA Café Cup Insulator

Aidan and I designed this highly durable cup insulator that is capable of keeping your cup of hot beverage nice and warm throughout this freezing winter. It is made of rubber that is easily foldable and a booster that refrains your beverage from moving about. This booster has been sewn with a layer of felt so it adds a grip to the surface you place it on. Statistics show that this insulator can keep your beverage 8˚ celsius warmer than a cup with no insulator in 10 minutes. Together as a group Aidan and I attached a piece of velcro for easy fastening and so that it is also easy too remove. Some flaws are crevices that made thermal energy escape through the insulator. We are incredibly proud on the amount of effort we put on making the cup insulator look elegant. We would fix the flaw by thinking of a way to stop the thermal energy from escaping through the small crevices. Possibly by adding weight on the edges. The hardest thing about this project is being able to work together with a partner when we could not decide on one idea and coming up with a compromise. Another hard thing was to decide who would bring the final product home as we both incredibly like the insulator.


I am from poem

This is the poem I made in humanities. I used StoryBird for  the illustrations and to create my story, I used GarageBand to help me create my background music, and iMovie to help me put everything together. I wasn’t here for the week that we made the music so the music will be simple. Enjoy the video!

Filtering our Earth- A Project by: Andy K and Larry K

This is a project that we designed in the design lab to help the children and adults that can not consume healthy water. We basically designed a water filter that goes through a series of purification.
