I wonder how child labour influences the world we live in and what effects it has towards children.

History of child labour. It began in the mid -of 1800's, and child labor was a major problem.It started at the age of 7 years where children were tending machines in...Read More...

I wonder how the ozone layer protect life on earth.

Hi everyone i will be researching on how beneficial the ozone layer is to us. The ozone is a deep layer in the stratosphere encircling the earth that has large amount of ozone in it.Its also known as the ozone shield .It was discovered in 1913 by the french physicist Charles Habry and Henri Buisson. It is found in two of the earth's atmosphere.It begins at about 6 miles above and extends to around 30 miles above. The ozone is made of the major gases like argon, nitrogen and oxygen.It also...Read More...

My question is: " What is the lifecycle of a Nation?" For Cycle 4, I want to take a look at actual nations, rather than systems behind them (as opposed to 2 of my previous cycles). I was inspired by someone's post about how to improve Kenya through nationalization. It made me think about how countries develop and improve, but also how a country falls. I instantly connected this to a documentary I watched a long time ago called "Four Horsemen" which mentioned something about patterns in the...Read More...

Hello Everyone! Imagine, imagine being 6 and a half feet tall how much more stuff you could reach from the top cabinets. Imagine being half robot like the Terminator, or even maybe being extinct. All of these are possibilities of what we known as, Evolution. Even prosthetics may become for more than just for the disabled. An Oxford-led study showed that some HIV infected children in South Africa, lived healthy lives, it actually turned out that their DNA built a anti-HIV defence, it helped...Read More...

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. The WABAC, LightSpeed, PixelBeams, and Stargates. All of these are Sci-Fi examples of teleporters and Time Machines. Wouldn't it be amazing if we had these in real life? Well, we won't. Not for a while, anyway. So here are the some of the closest things that we do have. HyperSpace we already have the Speed of Light, However, Star Wars HyperSpace is not only faster, but humans can travel in it as well. It moves so fast, I consider it a form of teleportation.Read More...

While teleportation seems an impossible endeavour, the science actually makes sense, by deconstructing and reconstructing particles Through entanglement, teleportation is possible Entanglement is the dependence of one state to another Using this, you could teleport without dying, if you kept it so that your entangled state made you stay alive Idan Entanglement and Molecular Deconstruction Teleportation is something that we’ve always wanted, and in this post I am going to talk about how it...Read More...

Hi everyone, my question is “how has society effected fashion”.i chose this question because i am really interested in fashion and i am happy that i get to research into how fashion has developed through the different points in time for both men and women. If you look back at fashion you will see that fashion has developed as the view of women and men has developed. It went from women not aloud to show skin to women wearing crop tops and bikinis. And men always in hats and suits to men in...Read More...

Why is Dementia on the Rise?

Grace Sun (Charles Best)
Hi everyone, great to be back again posting. For this cycle, I wanted to do something different and I was thinking of things that meant more to me so I would be interested in researching on these topics. Since I volunteer in a senior's home, I have experienced many people with this condition. I had to have training in associating with dealing with people who have dementia. Someone recently brought it to my attention that dementia was rising and I thought this would have lots of information...Read More...

Hi everyone, In this cycle, I will be extending my research from my previous cycle and be focusing specifically on wheeled movement. Last cycle, my inquiry question was "How Can I Create a Refined System For Robotic Movement?". This cycle, I will be using wheels for movement as well as seeing what sensors allow for the smoothest movement for my robot. This will be an ongoing experiment and I will try and post images and explain my process to give everyone a good understanding of my process.Read More...

Hello everyone! As we all know our technology is increasing rapidly and we have to become acceptant of it. Therefor subjects like:Is Robotic Prosthetics A Positive Or Negative way to give someone a new leg or eye, or more importantly will they be accepted into society? I believe it may be a good way to help someone who may have lost a limb in a fight, however the fact that it would be a hard surgery may be too great, causing the patient to have to live without a limb or eye. If you did have...Read More...

Okay, so this is getting a bit off topic, but I believe that Time Travel and Teleportation go hand in hand, as it is called the Space Time Continuum. As I covered in my first post, wormholes are usable for teleportation, and they could be gateways through time, but did you know that Black Holes could be methods of getting through through time as well? The main focus of black holes is the “Big One” as it’s called. It is in the centre of the Milky Way, twenty-six thousand light years away, the...Read More...

Inquiry Change

Emily Schaffer (LFAS)
I’ve decided to change my inquiry. Although I still want to work with kids, I realized that I would much rather focus on how children think and perceive the world rather than how they are affected by technology. I created a video for my technology project which prompted my project change. The responses the grade twos had where super amazing and advance so I’ve decided to change. I still need to formulate a new question and project plan. For now I plan to interview different grades (starting...Read More...

Hi everyone! For this brand new Inquiry Question, I'm going to be going back to my roots: looking into astronomy. Astronomy, since I was a little kid, has been a passion of mine, so I'm super excited to be getting back into it! My Inquiry Question for this cycle is: "What makes life on Earth possible?", and, ironically, I will be looking at planet Earth itself as little as possible. Why, you may ask? Because many of us already know the answer to this question; Earth is located in the...Read More...

Hey everyone! I'm glad to be back on butterfly effect posting again, and so far I've been satisfied with the work I've done in the past couple of cycles, but now it's time to try something different. So far historical, psychological, and health sciences have been explored but I'm willing to dive right into a social/ economical issue that dominates our time. For me, I always wondered why countries exist where poverty, illness, and corruption never ceased. Where does all the money go?Read More...

In many crime fiction books that I have read, the story focuses on the detective solving the mystery and catching the perpetrator. In reality, however, detectives may need assistance from various other groups of people, including forensic scientists. Forensic scientists analyze evidence from crime scenes to pinpoint the culprit and may even be called upon in court to testify their findings. For my fourth research cycle, I will be focusing on the mental health of forensic scientists as their...Read More...
Hey everyone! I'm really excited to be starting my new project plan. This cycle, I will not be continuing with my previous project about loss of marine biodiversity in the Galapagos, but rather starting something completely unrelated. This cycle, my inquiry question is: How influential is the role of prions in evolution and is it more beneficial or detrimental? For my first round of research (next week), I will be bringing some closure as to what prions actually are. I will also start to...Read More...

Idan April 25, 2017 WORMHOLES Many sci-fi movies and books state that travel through time and space is possible via wormhole. Just as as many (if not more) people think this is true. Based on Professor Stephen Hawking’s research (and my own) on black holes and wormholes, it just so happens to be possible. No surface is perfectly smooth, not even specially carved ones. Magnify a surface by a hundred, you would see little niches inside it, and if not, go into the Molecular Field, You would...Read More...

Hey everyone! So for this upcoming cycle, I'm going to be continuing with my last question, with a different point of view. Last cycle I looked at this question from a religious perspective (R.P.) and this cycle I'll be looking at it from a philosophical perspective (P.P.). I'm really excited to get started and to learn about even more perspectives of the meaning of life!! Thanks! :)Read More...

Hey everyone, For my new project, I've decided to look into "Why do we have trouble sleeping?" Do you have those nights where you lay in bed while tossing and turning, but can't fall asleep? Well sometimes I do! I'd like to expand on this basic question and find a way to have a good night sleep everyday. On top of my key questions, I would like to find out the truth behind certain myths like only men snore and that's why their partner can't sleep. My last cycle was more opinionated, but this...Read More...

This is a project that I've been holding off for a while till we finished our mural (which is being printed!). It's a collaboration with Moira that I introduced at the start of butterfly. The question is how can we reduce our ocean waste? We want to create posters and play with photography in different ways to grab people's attention. I'll post an example of one I was playing with on the bottom of the post. We will have to come up with a slogan for each poster to keep it interesting then...Read More...
