Sofia and I created a iMovie for Ignite week Make a Moment project. The subject that we are filming is energy wearables but they changed it to energy wearables and usable. The success that we have during this week is that the filming the video and editing/making the video. The challenges we have for this week is getting it done on time, since the week is so short and people in energy wearables and usable hadn’t finished their product and we need to take a picture of their product in order to finish our video that we created, so that we are kind of behind the schedule. The L21 focus area that I choose for this time is creativity and innovation. I have grown in my L21 focus area by that in the past I don’t really get what innovation means and during this week I truly get what does innovation means, and that during editing and filming the video Sofia and I had thought of a lot of creativity ideas like creating bloopers in the video so I sure improved on creativity and innovation. The skills I learned during Ignite week that would be value for me in the future is the editing skills, the filming and photography skill I learned from Mr.Moniz and the public speaking skills. The filming, photography and editing skills of video is important to me in the future because I am sure that I would use it a lot, and the public speaking skills(the courage to speak up) is very useful in everyday life.

To raise awareness for Global warming, I decided to create a FA farm. I decided to pick this project because, a lot of people know that Global warming is important, but they do not really take care of it.
During this year book, I learned about using different instruments and tools. Also, I had to be very creative and be unique.
If i have a chance to do the same project next time, i would work with a partner or in a group, because i had really difficult time doing everything alone.
Why did you pick this Ignite project?
Arissa and I picked this Ignite project because we have a huge passion for dogs, and more importantly, we want to reduce our carbon emissions by upcycling old clothing to make dog toys.
What did you learn?
Through this project, we learned that we have to be thorough when looking for materials. Arissa and I also learned that making sure we have all the materials for our project is essential; if we are missing a material to our final product, then we wouldn’t be able to complete it. We also need to measure out everything and make a few tests to make sure our final products are perfect or good quality.
What would we do differently:
We would prepare materials ahead of time, make sure we are satisfied with our project and product, and make sure we have an organization to donate to.
I picked this project because I love drawing, I can sit and draw for the whole day.I grew by seeking out for feedback and use them efficiently, asking myself questions looking at my artworks how can I make it better. My idea is feasible and challenging for me, I tried different types of drawing techniques. My drawing skills with makers improved, also sketching and Zen tangle. My biggest improvement is on my drawing speed, I used to need more than 4 hours to draw one picture, but now I only need 2-3 hours which is a lot faster. For my exhibition, I put a risk because I am using a new way, letting people comment by using sticky note instead of just showing.
Roy and I picked this ignite project because we had an interest in composing music and making videos. Roy has multiple previous projects on composition and I have experience with video editing, so we thought this project will be the best fit for us. From this project, we got to practice our video editing skills and composition skills which can help us in our future. If we had a chance to do this project again, we might add some first-hand video clips and pictures in our video.

My partner and I once saw a bird smashed on the floor by a motorcycle, because it was eating a bread on the road. We wanted to make bird feeders, while using wooden materials might give bird a longer and steadier place to have food. During the time at making the wood house, I learned how to use the sail to cut the wood, how can I sand it, how to nail them together, and how to use all these special machines. Those skills are really going to help me in the real life such as you can fix your thing by your own, and create stuff that are handmade, it could be really useful. If next time i would do this again, I would like to measure clearly the weight or length to make the birdhouse neat.
What happened if an environmental issue and Chinese fiction are combined
For this Ignite project, I will be writing my own Chinese Xuanhuan fiction book, Creating my own characters and a unique storyline. The story’s dark side will reveal or imply a lot of serious environmental issue.
This is my first time ever to write a fiction book in Chinese and I always wants to do that since I am a big fan of Chinese fiction myself, and this project will be super challenging for me.
Here is my powerpoint.
Read my story
For my Ignite project, I made edible utensils. I picked this project because I feel like there is a need for environmental care. I learned many new skills throughout this project, like molding, 3d designs+3D printing, Baking, Cooking, Problem-solving and many other new skills. Is I had to do something differently, I would work on my cup earlier because I didn’t have a lot of time do work on my cup.
I picked this Ignite Project because I wanted to experience impacting on a small group, which was birds. This will also have an impact on bird life by providing food for them. A positive impact by demonstrating how we can upcycle and inspire other people to be kind to animals and the environment. I learnt that I should first make a detailed plan before starting the project. Next time what I would do differently is to collect more recycled paper or cartons of drinks in order to create a more vivid birdhouse.
For this ignite week, I chose to write a research paper on famous historians that have changed the course of the study. I chose it because I have a strong interest in writing and researching, and it worked out cause it was really fun to write. I learned about the hardship of people, and what work goes into people’s passions. If I had a chance to do it differently, I would try and research different historians instead and try to bring out my message more.
