Feed The Future 2018

The Feed the Future project is about how to sustain our world in fifty years. Sustainability is being able to maintain something for a long time. FA 7 used their knowledge from science, humanities, and math to make pitches, infographics, posters, and design meals that will help sustain our future. The focuses of groups ranged from alternative sources of protein, reducing waste, changing our diet, and more.

Running in the hallways

We claimed that running in the hallway and tripping is related to the laws of motion. First, our victim, tom was running in the 6th-grade hallway, then a teacher stopped him. Because he was late for class so he ignored the teachers warning and continued running, but he ended up tripping and getting hurt. This relates to all Newton’s laws because it includes unbalanced force and inertia, acceleration and force, and, momentum and motion.

Project Collision- PSA

My group improved safety at ISB by, showing second graders to use safe equipment when they play sport, so no injuries happen to them. I showed our PSA to my brother who is in that class and he said, the video showed him that this problem is very serious. When I showed this to their class they really enjoyed the video and they also learned some science too!

Project Collision Reflection

nvolved me, Ryan, and Austin demonstrating to 4th graders just how dangerous running in the hallway can be. For example, the first law of motion was about the law of inertia, meaning that an object in motion will stay in motion, and an object in rest will stay at rest. Me and Ryan ran around a hallway corner at a high speed, consequently colliding and falling to the floor.
Newton’s second law states that a=F/m, meaning that the acceleration of an object depends on the net force and the mass of that object. For instance, a person trying to push a truck by himself will most likely turn out to be unsuccessful because the mass of the truck is far more than the mass of the person. Newton’s third law states that very object will have an equal and opposite force, meaning that if one person hits the wall, that the person will experience pain, due to the fact that the amount of force the person has transferred to the wall has been brought back to the person who was acting upon the force.
In this unit, the thing that challenged me the most was the scale drawings. This is because most of the time I was focusing on constructing the hydroponics instead of working on my scale drawings. Next time, when doing something like this I should focus on getting my current work done before fixing older work.

Marco Polo’s Changemaker

Project entrepreneur

________________________________________________________________________

This project was to use the principals of entrepreneur meet the needs of our local and global community. Our group was following the driving question, the Marco Polo Snack Bar is aware of not serving meat and no unhealthy ingredients like oil. What made us aware and engaged into the project is that there has been a hypothesis that many scientists made, our planet will run out of resources in around 85 years if we continually keep our consistent habits of wasting.

Throughout the project we had some problems, every process will have a problem point, our problem was that our group was slowly processing during planning, so the first day our group wasn’t able to sell one of our products, so then our group did terrible the first day of selling.

But then we have our successes, we were able to sell the missing product we weren’t able to sell in the first day, and the people who bought our products last bake sale came again, so it was slowly getting popular every few minutes. The most products we sold was our oreo milkshake. So then here come another problem, the third bake sale we weren’t able to sell much oreo milkshake because we didn’t have enough milkshake, and then there wasn’t much people coming to our snack bar.

Our group came to a conclusion that we definitely made a profit out of 2 of the sales. The first sale did not go too well, because our group thought that people weren’t reminded to bring their money and didn’t have anything to buy our product. But the rest was a success because that the other group that was selling bubble tea was gone, that was our observation.

Mystery Boxes


 A social entrepreneur, in my opinion, is a person or an organization that has a dream to impact or solve a global issue. In this unit, we learned and became one of those honored business men. We faced several problems throughout the process of the project. For example, when we were on the wrong track. (inaccessible idea) Our idea got rejected because it might cause a fire. (according to the teacher, water can cause injury to people) Fortunately, we changed the idea of making web shooters in time and transitioned into mystery boxes. At last, we are donating all of the profit to Smile Week, an organization that helps kids with disabilities. We met at least one of the SDG standards by making our product fully recycled.

Don’t be a Phubber!

Driving Question: How do we use the laws of motion to improve safety?

First of all, our group made a PSA about phubbers slipping on a banana peel that’s been littered, for the PSA, we wanted to show that don’t be a phubber, don’t always look at your phone, things can’t rewind, the truth hurts…and we want to show that don’t litter not only that for the environment, it hurts the people around you. And then in the PSA, we add how did the person slip, and how did his head crack and all the things that could be described by Newton’s laws, and we all explained it by Newton’s all three laws. Then at last we presented to a fifth grade class and got advice. so the main thing we did to answer the driving question is that we used pubbers and the banana peel as an example for describing Newton’s laws, and we shared to get advise and shared to warn students.  

PSA: Kids Wear Your Helmets

How do we use the laws of motion to improve safety?

You might consider mentioning: What did you learn? What challenged you about this project? How did you try to improve safety at ISB?

 

I learned Newton’s three laws of motion

I thought it was difficult to understand Newton’s three laws of motion

I used to think riding a vehicle without a helmet was really fine but now I think without helmet is just suicide(but I don’t have a helmet in my house)

Unit 3: PSA + Driving Question Response

How do we use the laws of motion to improve safety?

You might consider mentioning: What did you learn? What challenged you about this project? How did you try to improve safety at ISB?

By understanding the basic laws of motion we can determine if the safety hazard is harmful with enough alacrity to prevent serious damage when making choices we can predict whether we should or shouldn’t. This unit I didn’t learn anything but whilst everyone else was learning the laws of motion I started to try and use different methods of cutting corners and use a vast variety of my knowledge to find things much more complicated and try some of my own predictions. The only thing that challenged me with this project was whenever I worked with a group they would never understand my ideas. This problem has plagued me for almost every project that gave us the freedom to “make our own” my teammates never understand ideas that are more complex and always end up not believing they will work.
