Hi everyone. Last week I conducted the second survey with grade 8’s at my school. I wasn’t able to share it with all of them and was only able to get 37 responses, as opposed to the 68 that I got the first time. The first question I asked was what their biggest takeaway from Screenagers was. For six of them, their biggest takeaway had something to do with videogame rehab. Some had never realized that it was something that even existed, others thought that it was unnecessary and one of them...Read More...

How Do We Determine the Reliability of Online Sources? (PVC Plastics) #3

Hi hi, Now I'll talk about my own research. In conclusion, I began to notice a pattern (remember patterns are very good). Many studies previously mentioned that VC is carcinogenic (can cause cancer), has properties that increases change/damage in DNA, can cause or increase risks of fatty liver damage/disease (steatohepatitis). But through my check list I saw two studies mentioned VC causes steatohepatitis, but they weren't as reliable as the other ones. So I wouldn't put as much weight to...Read More...

How Do We Determine the Reliability of Online Sources? (PVC Plastics) #2

Hello again, As my research came to an end, I have made yet another table, but to its disguise it's a checklist. My ‘checklist’ shows in summary the reliability of each article I looked at. This will help me distribute the ‘weight’ of each article. For example, if one article is making enormous claims that some people would find believable, but in reality it is: Conducted on 2 people Posted in a poor journal And the authors degrees came from the University of Rainbows and Unicorns (or URU...Read More...

How Do We Determine the Reliability of Online Sources? (PVC Plastics) #1

Hello everyone, Quite some time ago I started my research on toxicity of VC (Vinyl Chloride), which is the main part of PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride), a commonly used plastic. We all know how much harm plastic, especially single use plastics cause to the environment and everything around us. Instead I was wondering what type of harm can it cause directly to the people in contact with the production of a well known plastic, PVC. When I first started researching my topic, I googled “is PVC...Read More...
Hi everyone, in my last post I talked about how many of the grade 8’s at my school use technology in their everyday life. Before I continue on in further answering my question, I am first going to talk about why people may use technology and how it can affect them, specifically their mental health, school, and sleep. There is a variety of reasons that people may use technology, but one of the most prevalent is the idea of it being cool. Many teenagers find that “all [their] friends have it”...Read More...

First of all, I would like to say thank you to everyone who sent me information and links last post. They really helped me go into the right direction. However, the war between Modern North American Medicine (Which I am defining as whatever your GP would recommend) and Naturopathy (Specifically traditional medicine and plant usage for one's well being) can be a messy battlefield. Naturopathy articles themselves can often be very questionable... ...so, I've created a chart to help me stay...Read More...

Hi everyone, for this post I will be sharing information about how much students use technology in their everyday lives. This week I watched a movie called Screenagers. This movie explores the impact that technology and screens have on teenagers. It was filled with lots of interesting information about how much kids and teenagers use screens, as well as how technology effects them, which is what I will be talking about in my next post. One of the things that stood out to me in the movie was...Read More...

I've always had a bit of a love-hate relationship with natural remedies. On one hand the idea of a cold-curing remedy hiding away in the confines of my kitchen cupboard sounds fantastic, but it also sounds fantastical. If modern North American medicine costs so much more than a package of organic ginger tea, why is cold and flu medication so popular? While the Nature Vs Science debate can be a harsh and unforgiving battleground, I've decided to look for answers with a completely open mind.Read More...

Hi everyone, it has been a long time since I last posted, but for the next couple of months I will be gathering research about technology and kids. The essential question that I am starting with is: How does educating kids about the impact of technology affect how they use it? I am very interested in how much kids are exposed to screens and technology and how that affects their development. I have been thinking a lot about how if we know so much about technology, why we still continue to use...Read More...

Does being vegetarian help animals and is it a sustainable way to live your life? - project plan

Many of my friends who are vegetarian claim that the reason they are is because they love animals or because they want to save animals. So that got me thinking. I love animals, so for a minute I wanted to become vegetarian. But then I thought about it some more, and I asked myself what effect me being vegetarian would have on animals? And what would I be saving them from? And what effects would it have on me? I thought all of these were good questions, so I decided to base my inquiry...Read More...

Hello and welcome to my second round on the question “Based off of technology's past, present and theorized future advances, how could it change the world around us in the future?” I have decided that rather than answer any questions that arise in the last round, that I’ll change this round into an answering styled thingy. For now, we will simply do the ones that came up in the reply’s that match the idea of what we are looking into. For one there was Jim’s fantastic idea to look into...Read More...

The Science of Beauty My Objective:This project explores the scientific notion of human beauty. Project Goals find out how your brain decides what’s beautiful. Hi everyone! I have decided to focus on the same subject but go in a different direction now They say all kinds of things about human beauty. It’s “in the eye of the beholder.” It’s “only skin deep.” “Looks don’t matter.” But cliches such as these do very little to cushion the harsh reality that how “beautiful” we think we are really...Read More...

Inquiry Plan Based off of technology's past, present and theorized future advances, how could it change the world around us in the future? The idea of this question came to me when I was getting pissed at my computer yesterday due to its low ram and how it tended to slow down a lot when running a virtual machine cause it would take 4gb’s of the ram and allocate all of it to the virtual machine cutting the already low 8gb’s down to 4gb’s. But that’s not from where the question came, the...Read More...

Hi everyone! I'm really excited to be back doing Butterfly Effect and I look forward to starting my upcoming inquiry project. This past year, I have been volunteering at a salmon hatchery (Hoy-Scott Watershed Society) and I've had a lot of great opportunities to meet people and discover a different part of the community I live in. For this cycle, I will be posting about the function of the hatchery, its importance, and what kinds of experiences I've had since I started interning there. My...Read More...

Hi everyone! For the new cycle, I plan to continue on with the same question as before. My inquiry question is: " How should government funding be used for the prevention of wildfires? " As a recap, my first round of research covered information about wildfire causes, factors and how they work. My second round of research was about both the negative and positive effects wildfires can have on vegetation and wildlife. My third round of research was about the impact of wildfires on soil and...Read More...
