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.

Re: Research S3 Round 9 Picking yourself back up: What allows us to actually do this?

Hey Jim! Great research round! I like how colorful your research is and how easy it is to understand. For your next research round about cancer, I assume you'll be looking at how you can pick yourself back up after being diagnosed with cancer. I think that is a great topic to research because imagine how it would feel after being diagnosed with cancer. You don't know where your life is going to go and what will change because there will be big changes. Here are some websites to help you:...

Hey Jim! This is fascinating research! While reading your work, I was agreeing with everything you were saying about needing a bit of a boost and then it getting easier. However, I think a huge problem for a lot of people is getting that boost, and finding the motivation to boost yourself back up. It could be interesting for you to look into where we can pull motivation from to pick ourselves back up. When people feel hopeless and have no will to do anything, how do they find the motivation...

Re: Research S3 Round 9 Picking yourself back up: What allows us to actually do this?

Hi Jim, Thank you for replying to my comment! That aside, you wrote a great post. I think having the mindset to keep going is very important when trying to "pick yourself back up." As you mentioned, it is the primary response needed from within to even begin taking that first step. Jim, when you mentioned incentives, do you think different parts of the brain responds to positive incentives and negative incentives. If so, how can an individual "train" their brain to not respond to negative...

Hi Justin, I think it would be cool to look into why A.I. is being developed at its current rate. What is the purpose of A.I.? Is A.I. created with the intention of providing humans more convenience, or is it a fantastical idea that sparks interest in people and creates profit for inventors? I would love to hear your opinions surrounding matters that involve artificial intelligence. Good post!

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.

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.
