Inquiry Question: What does ‘understanding’ mean? The project brings me many new ideas and at the same time, it changes my point of views and gives me more angles to look at the essence while doing researches. First, when I’m looking at the word ‘understanding’, I feel it is something which cannot be discussed in sections because the topic itself is so subjective. However, after reading some psychological analysis online, I changed my mind. Understanding can be explained by reason, result,...Read More...

Hey everyone, I'm sad to say this will be my last post for the year. This year in butterfly effect has been amazing and the addition of new schools has allowed for more interaction throughout the site. I look forward to continue reading everyone's posts and comments next year when we get back to school. Enough with the sappiness and let's get right into my metamorphosis How Does The General Traits Of Teenagers Affect Our Daily Lives? How does my inquiry question impact my thinking? Learning...Read More...

Hey everyone! Sorry I'm a bit late with my metamorphosis; I had a lot to study for during finals week, but I'm back with my last post for the school year! For those who are just joining us, my inquiry question is... How does consumerism in the beauty/fashion industry affect our society today? Let's get started with the metamorphosis! Out of all the cycles I've done this year, I believe this inquiry has impacted my thinking the most for three reasons. First, I was aware that consumerism was a...Read More...

Hello everyone! I'm here for the last time this school year, and I'm going to be ending this research round with my metamorphosis! This research round I looked into humans, value, how we assign value to things, and what makes something valuable. Lastly, I looked at if anything is "invaluable". First, I think my research really impacted my state of mind and my thinking. Before performing this research, I had a general idea of what made something valuable, but I didn't really understand the...Read More...

Hi everyone! This year flew by so fast, it still amazes me that I completed 3 full cycles throughout the whole school year. Through these cycles, I have deepened my understanding and knowledge on topics that I am personally passionate about, and I feel this has allowed me to grow and connect this learning to other things in my life and school work. This is my rap up for my third and final cycle of the year! Inquiry question: “What does a healthy lifestyle consist of, and how do we maintain...Read More...

This is Mundia last post as a student, I hope to come back next year as a mentor. I learned so much this year from teaching at Hillcrest Middle. Just a recap of what happened. We started in September teaching the kids the basics of what Butterfly Effect is and getting to know each other. It seems like such a long time ago now that I can barely remember the details. We started with questioning and teaching them what a good question is… not just a googlable one is, as we like to call it. Then...Read More...

How does recreational crabbing effect crab populations in British Columbia? This is the question I have been trying to figure out for a whole semester, and finally can say I have finished my research and have come somewhat to a conclusion. Now technically my 2nd cycle is the same question as my cycle 1, but that's because this was quite a big project, and it took me lots of time to get out and do the research. So... this metamorphosis is on the same question, but since the last one some of...Read More...

Metamorphosis Cycle 7

Throughout the course of this cycle, I researched "Why are mental health issues common in teenagers and students?". I looked into many different mental health issues and analyzed their effects on teenagers and student performance at school. I learned an incredible amount of new, interesting information, so I would like to share my wrap-up with you all. The new knowledge I acquired while researching my inquiry has a tremendous impact on my thinking now. Firstly, I am much more aware of mental...Read More...

Hey folks! Hard to believe I've been researching the same question for so long. It's been fun and informative, but I feel it's time to wrap it up now. Here's what I have to say for my reflection; How has this inquiry impacted your thinking? I think I'm more conscious of what is going on in the fashion industry because of this project. I am also glad I looked at current fashion in different cultures and places around the world- this has helped me to have a more accurate perception of these...Read More...

Howdy everyone, I am back from a long delay (sorry!) and I am here to post my metamorphosis. For those of you who have never seen my work, I spent the past research round studying the different impacts of the textile/fashion/clothing industry. I looked into how it impacts us on an economic, environmental, social, and media level. If you would like to read my research, you can find my first round here:...Read More...

Hi everyone! My cycle for my second inquiry question this year has come to an end. My question was "Why is Vancouver one of the most expensive places to live?" What I discovered through researching this topic has opened my eyes and made me very aware of all the prices my parents have to pay for gas, food, houses etc. It also gave me insight to how our government is dealing with these problems of high expenses in the city. In the end, I feel I have finished looking into this question, and I...Read More...

Inquiry Question: Are competitive eaters inherent or acquired? This topic can be discussed and conducted in two ways, one is if the eater is inherent, and the other is if the eater is acquired. If the eater is inherent, I can investigate its backgrounds and physical structures. If the eater is acquired, I can investigate its living habits and eating habits. In both ways, I can get a correlation on why someone can eat this much food and what in the original causes this to happen. Also, I will...Read More...

Hey everyone! This is my metamorphosis on my inquiry question... " How has society's perspective on feminism changed over the past 50 years?" I really enjoyed learning about the evolution of feminism over the past few weeks. I had always been interested in the topic of feminism, but I had never really taken the time to do some insightful research on it. While working on this inquiry, I not only learned about how feminism has evolved, but I also learned about how hard the women before me...Read More...

Metamorphosis-Crabbing

Kian Abdollahi (Charles Best)
Hello everyone. When I started my project the question that I went in with was: How does recreational and industrial crabbing effect crab populations in British Columbia? The reason that I chose this topic was because when I first moved here I noticed all these people throwing these odd shaped nets into the water. Dozens and dozens of people in specific locations, throwing nets and catching crabs. Made me think...what's the effect? So that's why I chose it. I wanted to know more, so I got...Read More...
Hello everyone, I am now done the topic of "Why do some teens feel the need to put great effort into their appearances while others don't?" Throughout the cycle, I've come to realise many new things about teens clothing that I haven't noticed until I did my research. Sadly, I feel I have completed my research to the best of my abilities so my cycle has to come to an end. How has your inquiry question impact your thinking? My inquiry question has greatly impacted my thinking in a positive way...Read More...

Hi everyone! My inquiry question for these past two cycles was: Why do cats behave the way they do? Learning about cat behaviour has been very enjoyable and useful to me as I have a cat of my own. I’ve looked into their anatomy, predatory behaviour, communication, personalities, stress and illnesses, evolution/domestication, and environmental factors that shape a cat’s behaviour. How my inquiry now impacts my thinking After doing this research, I’ve learned that cats are actually less...Read More...

Metamorphosis Cycle 6

Hi Butterfly Effect, For my metamorphosis on "What are the controversial aspects of animal testing?" I will discuss what I have learned this cycle. First of all, how this topic now impacts my thinking. Before, I didn't realize how many companies and brands actually use animals to test their products. In reality, the majority of industries do so. I obtained this knowledge through light research, and the information was so easy to find that I was surprised how uninformed our society is by the...Read More...

Our inquiry is less of a question and more of a statement. Teaching Butterfly Effect to Middle School Students Teaching Butterfly Effect has taught us about the different ways to speak to younger kids. We know you can not always talk to them the way you talk to a peer in high school. Of course respect is a quality that is used no matter what age group you are talking to. You also have to form sentences somewhat differently. If we were talking to one of you about what Butterfly Effect is, you...Read More...

My goal for this research round was to look for different ways to organize work and retain more information. Throughout this short cycle, I realized the importance of time management and how it can make a schedule so much less hectic. The organization part of my research was fairly well-known already to me, however I enjoyed researching about external factors and how environment can affect focus. I think that although everyone has different likes and dislikes, we all know that in order to do...Read More...

Hey everyone, This will be my conclusion of my previous cycle of research, and to wrap everything up, I'll be summarizing the impacts that this project had on me as well as how I believe this information could have a broader effect if exposed. I really enjoyed doing research throughout this past cycle, thank you to everyone who commented! My question was: What role do ethics play in the production of GMOs? I would definitely consider this project to have been subjective in relation to how I...Read More...

How do cosmetics effect us?

Hey everyone, This is the conclusion to my research round with the question: How do cosmetics effect us? I'll be wrapping up the stuff that I learnt in this round of research. I really liked looking into makeup and the effects. I am also exited to move on to my next topic. The first thing I looked into was liquid and powder foundation and the effects and contents of these products. for liquid foundation I found that a lot of foundations have the word organic on the bottle and that doesn't...Read More...

Hi everyone! My inquiry question for this cycle is “Why do cats behave the way they do?”. It’s been really fun so far learning about cat behaviour, and I plan to continue with this inquiry question for the next cycle of research. How my inquiry now impacts my thinking From this research, I’ve learned that cats may give signals that can possibly have two completely different meanings. For example, a cat with extremely dilated pupils may either be defensively aggressive, or they may be simply...Read More...

Inquiry question: How might social media affect teens (13-19 years old)? The project brings me many new thinkings and simultaneously, it changes my point of views and gives me more angles to look at the essence while doing researches. At first, when I consider impacts on teens, all that I can think about is the negative influence, for example, cyber-bullying and hacking-stuffs. I ignore these good facets that social media can take on us, for example, education, a new era of coding and...Read More...

Hello everyone! I can't believe my first cycle has come to an end already! For my first cycle this year, my inquiry question was " What are the advantages and disadvantages of incorporating ayahuasca in western medicine?" Before this inquiry, I definitely had my doubts about alternative medicines as a whole. Growing up, western medicine seemed to be the only reliable form of healing. So, when one of my close family members announced that they were going to a partake in an ayahuasca ceremony,...Read More...
