Jake Schmidt (LFAS)
Hello everybody my question for this round's question is going to be about yawning. For each question i will make connections between yawning and something else related to the question.

What inspired me to do this topic was my cat because right after my cat yawned i yawned so i...Read More...

Hi, everyone! Today I am going to explain me new inquiry question: "Are competitive eaters inherent or acquired?" Recently, I found a lot of You Tubers who are mostly focusing on the competitive eating, which means they usually can eat at least five times of food than the normal people do. Also, I found that most of the competitive eaters are female. No matter how much food they eat, their weight is always steady with no increase. This fact makes me interested. Therefore, I will expand this...Read More...

Hi everyone! I'm glad to be back on the site! For my cycle three question, I will be focusing on feminism and it's overall evolution over the past 50 years. Specifically, my question is...

I firmly believe that communication is an art that we should not ignore. Improper communication can cause many problems, such as misunderstandings. I wish to find out why the misunderstanding has occurred and how we can deal with it in a nice way. Thus, I'll divide the topic into 5 sections to discuss. Round research 1&2: When a misunderstanding occurs, the common excuse is 'you got me wrong, I didn't mean this', it means people tend to consider that receivers have responsibility for the...Read More...

Hello everybody! I'm back with an all-new question; why did fashion evolve in the late 20th century? Unlike my last question, this is something I don't know a lot about, and I'm intrigued by fashion and style. I want to look at trends, styles, what influenced them, why trends come back, what influences fashion has on Western society, and probably other things will come up. This is all I can think of for now. The time period I want to focus on is everything from the 1970s to the late...Read More...

Hello everyone, For my second cycle of the year, I'm going to continue the with same question "Why do teens feel the need to put great effort into their appearances while others don't?" because I feel like there is more information that needs to be discovered. In the first cycle, I examined the general idea of what is "fitting in?" and I looked into how peer pressure can effect how teens dress. Some ideas for this upcoming cycle I had are .... - Social media and the impact it can have on...Read More...

Hello everyone, For my research round, I would like to look into how the textile industry impacts the world around us. Instead of looking at different aspects of the textile industry itself, I want to look into different impacts (e.g. environmental, mental, social, the media, economic) it has on us and those around the world. Moreover, I would like to see ways we could lessen any negative impacts that the industry has on Earth, and how we can move forward to better ourselves as people. I was...Read More...

In our daily life, sometimes we feel hard to be in a group because of misunderstandings. And in some occasions, you probably think that you've declared your perspectives very clearly but others become being estranged from you, and at the time, you suddenly realize that others' understanding is diametrically opposite to what you mean. Or at some points in one's life, he/she feels regretful because of misconstructing someone's words and it results in a stalemate over months/years. We all have...Read More...

What does Anime bring to us?

Ivy Hao (Charles Best)
Hey guys, do you ever see any Anime or Manga? How do you feel about it? Or......I mean, how do you think it bring to you? In my opinion, it is an good entertainment to waste your time, but it can also bring something "extra". As the rise of the animation industry, animation technique, drawing skill, sound effect, score, plot......goes into people's eyes. In another hand, the extension of Anime either. For example, Galgame (a type of Japanese video game centered on interactions with...Read More...

Therefore, for this cycle, potentially building on my 3rd cycle (animal abuse & veterinary care), here is my inquiry: "What are the controversial aspects of using animals for research purposes?" I am looking forward to learning everything I...Read More...

Hey everyone! I've decided to stick with the same inquiry question as the last cycle, as I feel that I could still learn a lot more from it. My inquiry question is: Why do cats behave the way they do? I have already learned about the basic cat anatomy, their predatory behaviour, and how they communicate. For my next rounds of research, I hope to look into personalities in cats, stress and illnesses in cats and how to find the signs of it in their behaviour, and perhaps a comparison between...Read More...

Drugs

Jayna Hagen (LFAS)
Hello everyone! Following my inquiry question how do drugs affect your brain, I decided to start my first batch of research on methamphetamine and cocaine. Majority of drugs release and flood dopamine into your brain causing you to feel an extreme high, yet by overusing your neurotransmitter you become unable to release dopamine and feel pleasure and well being without the extreme high felt from these damaging drugs thus the addictive nature of drug use. Methamphetamine can be produced in...Read More...

I've always been very interested in psychology and music is a big part of my life so I decided to make a inquiry question about it. How does music effect your mood? Research shows that music stimulates many emotions with specific brain circuits. For example this happens when a mother sings to their baby. My plan is to work my way through all emotions happy, sad excited and so on. I’m going to look at how when you listen to certain genres it can change the way you feel and also how your...Read More...

Hey guys. Working on the Inquiry Question was such a big challenge for me. At the beginning part of this inquiry project, I was struggling with my topic and didn't know how to handle it. My first inquiry question was "the brain effects of learning another language"; however after I shared this with other butterfly effecters, I truly realized how I was just too optimistic toward this topic. After that, I started thinking about it more widely, and found a project partner named Haleigh...Read More...
