Only about 35% of precipitation ends up in the sea or ocean while 65% is absorbed into the soil. The main type of precipitation in Kenya is rainfall . The rainfall distribution pattern in Kenya is bimodal with long rains falling from March to May and the short rains from October to December. According to the Kenya...Read More...

Hi guys! I've been thinking all week for an inquiry question, and I finally came up with one. My question is: How are sports different in different parts of the world? I've played sports for basically all my life, so its something I'm really interested in! I want to find out what sports people play in different countries, how they are played, and why they are different than what we play in Canada. If anyone has any suggestions on how I could make my project better I'd love to hear them:) Thanks!Read More...

What Would Happen If A Human Passed Through A Wormhole?

Ever since I could remember, I would stare into the night sky, wondering if I could possibly find a black hole, or maybe even a wormhole. As I got older, I got more and more interested about these unexplainable forces, but the one that stuck out to me the most was the classic wormhole. Imagine going through a spinning, empty void and ending up somewhere completely different. Curiosity plays a big part for us humans and the more thing we understand, the more we want to know. I found that this...Read More...

Hi everyone! For our first inquiry question this year, we have decided to do our project on gender roles in art. Our question is : Are women actually more creative/artistic than men, or is it a thought that has been influenced by society? Has society/family/media taught men that being artistic/creative is not good? Are there simply different standards for women in art? If it is true that women are more creative than men, why? Is it something in a woman's brain? However, many years ago, men...Read More...

I am interested in the scientific principles behind science fiction and cartoons (like the DC Action series) that are based on these concepts. So for this project, I intend on researching Captain Boomerang's boomerangs. I will need to study the chemistry behind this, as well as physical principles. While I know that his "tricks and tools" are fictional, I am interested in the real life science behind the creator's ideas. This means that I will have to study the real physics behind the...Read More...

Hi everyone! I have chosen this question because, as I'm sure many of you can relate to, I will soon have to choose my career. There are so many different fields to choose from, and it's hard not to think about the salary associated with those jobs. I'm curious as to whether or not a brain surgeon would want to be a brain surgeon if they were paid the same as a postman. I'm looking forward to exploring this topic.Read More...

Hi, everyone! My inquiry question is "How does the environmental force change crystal structure?". When I was a child, I was interested in the crystal. There were so many crystal things such as the princess's shoes, crystal ball in the movie. As I grew up, I saw the real crystals that have many different colors and structures. Then, I found that salts, rocks, and wax are all crystals, and they have different structures. Therefore, I have some question "What factor may change the structures...Read More...

Hi everyone, I was thinking about some topics that really interested me, and it dawned upon me that we have such a fixed ideology about our "self", but we don't really have any hard evidence that we are what we have perceived. In the 1500's, Descartes, a French philosopher, thought about this idea as well. How did we know that we actually existed? He knew that our senses of touch, taste, smell, sight, and hearing could deceive our minds, so how could he prove that we were not just a figment...Read More...

Nanobots are tiny "machines", but the ones I'm interested in are made of proteins. Biotechnology is the scientific manipulation of living organisms and their organic processes, especially at the molecular genetic level, for Human benefit. I hope to develop a sturdy understanding of these subject areas by the end of he...Read More...

Hi everyone! My inquiry topic is theater. I have always loved theater and have experienced the power and effect it has on people first-hand. This issue of diversity in art has been around for many years, and is one we continue to battle even to this day. We see it now even more than ever, with things like #Oscarssowhite and the like. My plan is to explore different plays that have been used to express political and social commentary, and what they have done to initiate conversation about...Read More...

Woman throughout history has always had a certain standard of beauty that they would have to reach to be socially accepted. A woman’s weight, height, ethnicity, skin colour, and social class has influenced how a society would act towards a them. Often If these standards were not met it would lead a woman being shunned, bullied, abused or even killed. These standards lead woman throughout history to partake in surgeries, diets, and terrible habits in order to been accepted and to be seen as...Read More...

What is intuition?

Nazaha Muntafi (Johnston Heights)
I chose this question because I am really interested in the detective stories of Sir. Arthur Conan Doyle and I read somewhere that Sherlock Holmes was modeled on a real person admired by Doyle, his good friend, Sir Dr. Joseph Bell. Sources say that Bell could pinpoint a problem with one glance when working with his patients, and could intuit their whereabouts for the previous months before meeting with him. It got me wondering if this was an acquired set of skills or is it a genetically...Read More...

Hello everyone. For my inquiry question I chose something based on concussions. This subject is very close to me because I myself has suffered from 2 of them.

Also, my parents and I think that my concussions may have effected my brain development as well. So I wanted to look into it and see how I can help other children through their concussions. -LaurenRead More...

What would happen if our solar system got close to a black hole?

Hey guys! So once again, I chose to research about a space related topic. My question is; what would happen if our solar system got close to a black hole? I actually started my research back in June, but I never finished it which is why I'm continuing now. The reason that I'm interested in this topic is because there are still so many unanswered questions about black holes, so it will be a challenge. If you guys have any suggestions, please let me know :)Read More...

Us humans are all familiar with that constant feeling dissatisfaction whether it be towards your life in general, or yourself as individual. After a lot of contemplation I've come to question whether or not experiencing a state of total happiness and satisfaction is truly possible. I am particularly interested in this topic for it relates to my fascination with the human body and its complexity yet is also something that we all experience in our everyday lives- questioning the very purpose...Read More...
