Hey guys its been a while once again but we’re back with yet another round of research. This round I focused on social behaviours relating to plastic usage as well as some popular misconceptions. Littering is a behavioural issue and has increased in parallel with our use of disposable products and packaging(1). Over 340 metric tons of plastics are produced in the world annually and about 50% of this volume is for disposable applications(2). A leading cause for littering could be greenwashing...Read More...

This round I will be looking at: What are the benefits of self driving cars, how do they impact the world in a good way and when can we expect them to be implemented? My last research round was: what are the ethical problem associated with self driving cars? The benefits: I chose to look at the benefits because last research round I looked at all the problems with it, and it was all pretty negative. I know that there are many reasons that self driving cars could be beneficial, so I wanted to...Read More...

Hey everyone, this is my metamorphosis for this cycle with my question “Why do we dream?”. During my research, I’ve looked into multiple different things such as different kinds of dreams or different sleep disorders and how they affect our dreams. It was quite interesting to read and research and I enjoyed it a lot. In my first research round, I looked into what dreams are and what happens in the brain during dreams and the whole process of it. In my second research round, I looked into...Read More...

Hey everybody! This will be my last post of my cycle, meaning I will be going depth for my metamorphosis. As you probably know, the question for this inquiry topic is: "Why are people being affected by drugs at music festivals?" 1. Discussion of how your inquiry now impacts your thinking Before starting my inquiry, my knowledge about music festivals and recreational drugs weren't too high; meaning I had to research for quite a while to understand my very own questions. But now that I have...Read More...

METAMORPHOSIS How does the criminal justice system affect children with parents who are incarcerated?

How does the criminal justice system affect children with parents who are incarcerated? Discussion of how your inquiry now impacts your thinking. I have always been interested in my topic because of my hope to pursue a career in law and the criminal justice system. This topic also resonated a lot with me because I have a absent parent. I related a lot towards the side of absence more long term because I have not seen my mother in over 9 years. Because of the absence of my mother I live with...Read More...

CYCLE 5 - METAMORPHOSIS

Hey everyone! This is, unfortunately, my last post for this cycle which makes this post my metamorphosis on my inquiry question... Does socially accepting drug addiction affect its usage among consumers positively or negatively? So, let's get started! With my previous inquiries, I always had an end answer in mind - even before I started my research. With the evolution of feminism, for example, I already knew the overall view of society on feminism when it first started compared to where it...Read More...

Hi everyone! The cycle has come to an end, so now it’s time for me to post my metamorphosis! My question is: “ How should government funding be used for the prevention of wildfires? ” So far, I’ve done four rounds of research. In my first round, I did some research on important background information I might need to know later on in my research such as how wildfires burn, causes and factors and types of wildfires. In my second round of research, I researched both the negative and positive...Read More...

Hey everyone, Since the beginning of the year, I have been researching the foster care system and the effects it has on children and my findings have been eye opening for myself. This question had some meaning behind it for myself because over the summer, I became acquaintances with someone who was in the foster system and I wanted to figure out what experiences he went through during his time. There has been some controversial topics within the system, especially abuse of the children, but...Read More...

Hi everyone! This is my first metamorphosis for my cycle concerning the inquiry question: “what does it mean to be conscious?”. A reason why I choose to do this question was because people experience perceptions, sensations, emotions and thoughts. Consciousness is a phenomenon we all experience independently of each other. Just thinking about this is fascinating. During these past four research rounds, I had hoped to being into the light the importance of our awareness and that we can be...Read More...
