Super cool Paige! I like the simplicity mixed with the utility of the phone charger and the cooker. Have you considered using solar power for methods other than cooking, like drying clothes, or heating water in a water tank?

Re: HERE COMES THE SUN **doondoodoo**

well I already dry my clothes n an outdoors clothesline for most of the year, so having a separate indoor dryer for clothes hasn't really occurred to me. My neighbours are experimenting with heating water in large black outdoor tanks, but it's quite an investment so I'm going to see how their situation turns out before considering installing some in my own home. Thanks for your input!

wow! i loved reading this and having pictures to go along with instructions to build such things has inspired me to go onto one of the links you posted and try. i think i will start with the phone charger! have you looked into the popularity and success rate of solar roof panels in other places? with more sunny climate? i love looking at and reading about the designers that build energy sufficient homes because they often have such a modern take throughout. good luck!

Hey Deondre, fascinating topic! It is interesting too to hear that you plan to modify your completed inquiry project into that of a video documentary. Your question is exceptionally well stated as a very specific yet dissectible topic, great job. It is imperative, as you stated, not only to find a way in which to create a sustainable future but also to understand potential challenges and biases. Of course, it is always overcomplicated with such questions. You would think that, given the...

Re: New Cycle 2 Project Plan

Hey Deondre! This is a fantastic topic, and one you already seem quite knowledgeable about! I believe one of the biggest (non-environmental related) challenges is that people are lazy. Until humanity gets smacked in the face with the problem, they rarely seem to care. Here's an article I think might help you, https://www.lego.com/en-us/abo...building-a-wind-farm It talks about Lego's plan to become 100% renewable by 2020. Hopefully it helps! Good luck

Wow. Those are actually really good questions, Danica. I've also wondered the same thing before, when I would watch the Winter Olympics. Not specifically about meat production, but global warming in general. What happens if years from now, it's too warm to go skiing, snowboarding, etc.? I don't play any winter sports myself, but I find it sad that the production of meat could possibly affect whether or not certain athletes will be able to find a good place to do their sport years from now,...

That is so cool! I hope you get the grant. I'm not saying you won't get it, but while you are waiting to hear back maybe look into alternatives. That info could still be useful even if and when you get the grant. I don't know what else to say. Good Luck! Can't wait to hear if you got it.

Hey Yihoy, I guess you could say you got "two birds with one stone" there with your tablet use. It was quite surprising to see the difference in numbers when looking at your battery use. Anyways, on a larger scale you could look at ways a school could save energy as I figure schools probably use up a lot of electricity. Nice Work!

Re: Round of research #3 - What will the future of electricity look like?

Hi Yihoi, Because of the fact that there are so many theories on what the future of electricity will look like, it's obvious that there are so many possibilities for our future and we will never really know what's in store for us until it happens. Let's hope it's good! And let's also hope that it's energy efficient, and that energy efficient electricity starts becoming more common very soon. The reason for that is because it would be a lot easier to slow down climate change now, compared to...

Hi Rhea, nice thought! I like your discussion on AI, it sounds very wonderful and all of your ideas represent in a logical way. When we look at the advantages that AI can bring for us, we should be also aware of the risk it might take on us, for example, the morality issues of certain applications of A.I. How to prevent A.I. being taken advantage of illegal activities? How will A.I. change our understanding of privacy? How will A.I. affect our perceptions of “ownership”? Think about these...

This is a really broad topic! I like how you incorporated the example of the development of iPhone/smartphone technology in just the last ten years and considered how much technology will change in the next ten years. Artificial intelligence is a very interesting topic as well. Consider looking at the advantages/disadvantages of AI and the development of technology.

There are some AI that can in fact learn from itself and its own experiences and situations.

Re: Cycle #3 - Metamorphosis - How are people with developmental disabilities/disorders affected emotionally?

Hey Anika! This research has been so fascinating to read and it is soooo important! You mentioned that you had trouble finding information on a global scale which is crazy! There are people all over the world, of every race and culture, who have developmental disabilities and are not receiving the support and understanding that they need. I think solving any problem starts with knowledge. If people learn about and understand the issues, the path to solving these problems begins being paved.

Re: How will the world of electricity change in the future?

Hi Yihoi, I think your action is very well thought out. I like how you are going to compare your past electricity bills with the new one! Maybe during your third round of research, you could take a looks at using wind power plants to create more electricity while looking at what scientists are trying to do to make electricity better. Even though these are already being used today, this could possibly be a way to create more electricity in the future! Here is a link:...

This is a super interesting topic and is, of course, a very important field of research in the creation of a cleaner, more green future. I like where you are going but have a suggestion. If you are focusing on how fossil fuel usage and the need for such usage is diminishing perhaps you should look into the car scene rather closely. How likely will electric cars be the way of the future? Ben Laird

Hey Allan. The idea of robots taking over humanity is a pretty cool (also scary) concept, though there are alternatives to robot domination. In the event that robots become self aware and are as smart as humans, both sides can engage in diplomacy and work together, rather than come into conflict. It could also be that robots don't achieve self awareness, and remain workers without causing any issues.

This topic is great! Going completely off grid is a very ambitious goal, but it would be great to learn about smaller ways that even those of us living in suburbia can try to live more sustainable lives. I wonder why people living off grid are often so isolated. Wouldn't it be easier if you had a community supporting you?
