Hey there everyone! So i have been encountering so many problems with this helicopter idea, that i have decided to research a new flight option. This one is not so much a "flight" project as a "hover" project. So first things first I technically have already built a hover board. I used the same principals as today's hover crafts. Or the same idea that is used on an air hockey table. However although cool and cheap (26$) it did not have the power to lift someone larger than 70lbs.Read More...

Hello everybody! I know that it has been a while since my last post but I am back now and am ready to get back into weekly or biweekly posts.

As what I mentioned in the project plan: '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 mistake.' So in the round research 1, I'll discuss: Why people always tend to believe what they want to believe Most people don't listen to understand but listen to reply Notes: Confirmation bias is the human tendency to seek, interpret and remember information that confirms...Read More...

Metamorphosis-Will humans ever come into contact with aliens or travel to another galaxy, and if so, how would it impact humankind?

My inquiry question was will humans ever come into contact with aliens or travel to another galaxy, and if so, how would it impact humankind? When people think about outer space and aliens, it is often a mind-blowing concept. The idea that aliens exist may be frightening to some and intriguing to others. Personally, I have always found space to be interesting, and have always wondered what new discoveries the future may hold. Through my research, I discovered that due to the massive size of...Read More...

Neuroplasticity

“Neurons that fire together wire together” — Donald Hebb. I've decided to look into neuroplasticity and how we can use it to heal patients in medicine. This post goes over what neuroplasticity is, how it works, and examples of doctors using it to alleviate patient suffering. How do our brains learn? The answer to this question is quite simple. Our brains learn whenever we learn. Whether that be memorizing bits of information or picking up new motor skills, we are unconsciously changing the...Read More...

Chapter Four, In Charge, Draft Two

I struggled as I was dragged to the town square by a burly blacksmith. Andrea and Arthur were following me (thank goodness, I don't know what I'd do without her) as well as the mob who wanted to see the new king pull the Sword. No matter how hard I squirmed or how loud I protested, I was brought to the Stone with an audience. All eyes were on me. It reminded me of the time I was in middle school and I fell off the stage in our play. I hated it. “ Pull it!” an old lady yelled from the crowd.Read More...

Research Round 1 - Cycle 2 - Why do miracles happen, and is it possible for them to bend the rules of science?

In this round of research, I will be looking at what miracles are and how science, religion, and humanity looks at them and defines them, as well as some examples. What is a miracle? -Oxford dictionary defines it as An extraordinary and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore attributed to a divine agency. -true “miracles” violate a law of nature, though the word is often used casually -an example of this is the Archimedean Law: “a floating body...Read More...

Chapter Two, Arthur, Draft Two

I stood up and looked around. Where was I? Where was Andrea? Did I push her out on time? “ Andrea?” I called out. I began to walk around one of the buildings, the only nearby sound was gravel crunching beneath my foot. I heard other distant noises like people chattering and laughing. “Andy?” “ Logan?” I spun around to find Andrea sitting in the street, rubbing her head. “How many times have I told you to stop calling me that?” My eyes began to sting with tears of relief as I ran towards her,...Read More...
Hi everyone! I'm so excited to be back to posting again! So, for this cycle, my question is... "How has society's perspective on feminism changed over the past 50 years?" For those of you who have not read my project plan, I have decided to split up each round by every couple of decades, starting with the 60s and 70s. However, before I jump into that, I would like to give a little introduction to what feminism is and why, contrary to what some people believe, it is not a means to show that...Read More...

Immigration

Erika Ceballos (Madison East)
Hi guys! My research project is on immigration issues and possible solutions to these problems. Initially, my research consisted of comparing the different perspectives on immigration from my community at Madison East High and the students from Malek and Sweetwaters. I found that the opinions varied based on who the group of immigrants was. Some groups received little to no sympathy whereas others did. This sparked curiosity in me, with immigration being a global matter, how can we improve...Read More...
