The society mounted as mass campaign to pressure the British parliament into banning the slave trade- chosen as an easier objective than the abolition of slavery itself.

Inquiry question: Is there life other than that of the one found in the earth on the solar system? Hello every one, today I intend to talk about a dwarf planet. In my second last research which was on Pluto, on the replies there was a suggestion that I look at the other dwarf planets as I conclude the research on the solar system. According to the International Astronomical Union, which sets definitions for planetary science, a dwarf planet is a celestial body that: Orbits the sun. Has...Read More...

For this round of research I will be talking about principle 2 which is "use you new language as a way to communicate from day 1" this one was a little tricky as using your language in my mind is speaking with people in your new language. to do so you need to find people who speak your new language. if you don't know anyone or know of that particular community it can be hard. something that I found helpful was to look up places in your area or around where you live where people who speak...Read More...

Although it is not directly related to my inquiry on the relationship between exercise and cognitive functions, sleep is a neurological necessity that also has some very interesting relationships with exercise. Not only does sleep replenish the body and mind but is also has huge effects on how effective recent exercise will be. Today I will address what sleep does, exactly what it is, and how it enhances physical gains (through exercise). Last week I spoke on the potential of further mirror...Read More...

Nicole Shimmin’s post on the song “Formation” by Beyoncé impacted me greatly because the post explains how people of colour should embrace their culture regardless of society. The quotation from Nicole's post that is relatable to me is the following: “As it is thought that as POC celebrities become more and more famous, they become "whitewashed" and do not act as they did before to appeal to the American audience. “ The reason this quotation resonated with me is because being women of colour...Read More...

Hi everyone, For my last research round, I am going to go into further detail about the robot that I have already built. I plan on explaining how it works, how the different parts within it interact to create a functional robot, and what I plan on doing next in order to refine my future robots. The Different Areas (Parts) As explained at the beginning of my research cycle, there are three major areas that come together to create a functional robot. These three areas are the micro-controller,...Read More...

Hi everyone! For the fourth cycle of research, I've decided to continue with my research on my inquiry question " How does music affect people? ". So far I've looked into how it affects our brain, our mood, learning/memorizing/studying, the Mozart effect, and I started to look into how music affects our health by looking into how it helps reduce pain, stress, and strengthens our immune system. For the next few rounds of research, I plan to look more into health and society. I will look into...Read More...

Automation based Society The primary goal of an economy based on Automation is to distribute basic goods (that are readily available with little to no cost) on a national level using wide-spread automation. The government (and possibly other organizations) are in direct control of this form of economy. Most citizens would live in a post work society, as manual labor wouldn’t be needed (although many will still retain high position/non automatable jobs). The following goes over how this will...Read More...

Cycle 3: Burn 2

Forum: The Burn
Opal Patil (Johnston Heights)
“The hedonistic approach (though not intrinsically bad), can often turn into a lifestyle filled with vices, violence and evil.” This quote comes from Taryn Trefanenko’s post about the meaning of life. In that specific research round, she took a look at Satanism (LaVeyan specifically), analyzing and commenting on the tenants and values of that religion. I read quite a bit about LaVeyan philosophy a while ago and know a bit about its inspirations. I wouldn’t consider myself “familiar” with it,...Read More...

Hey Everyone! I know I know, im getting bad at posting, sorry about that. But i have been doing some research and i have realized some things. The basic things starting are that i need to one make a leg mold for my leg, so that i can get melted plastic around my leg shape. I need to make a leg cast since i don't want molten plastic on my leg. The second is that i need to layer plastics to create both strength and flexibility. This has something to do with the rigidness of most plastics, so...Read More...

I wonder what motivates permit towards trophy hunting and what motivates a person to kill wildlife. "Trophy hunting is sustainable,trophy hunting generates revenue where alternative may not be variable,trophy hunting does not preclude other forms of resources use,the presence of trophy hunting operators can reduce illegal hunting"Samuel Kariuki(Tigithi). Samuel s work have made me understand that their certain organization that supports trophy hunting also allows illegal hunting of wildlife...Read More...

For this cycle, I'll be discussing the effects that climate change has on mountainous environment going into the past, present, and future. As in my past cycles involved with climate change I've explained some causes to climate change and now I'll be explaining and showing their effects. I'm planning on starting the cycle with a little recap on the basics of climate change, looking at water vapour and clouds. Then what we've seen in the past, looking at statistics of melting glaciers,...Read More...

Hello, For my new cycle, I'm exploring into a new question which is Why do we have trouble sleeping? I don't know anything much about this topic yet, so I'm going to be starting from the beginning. An idea I came up with is I want to uncover some myths about sleeping, so in my opening paragraph for each research round I'm going to briefly touch on a different sleeping myth. Hopefully at the end of my research, I will have 5 myths to uncover in my sixth research round. Now without a father of...Read More...

Inquiry Change

Emily Schaffer (LFAS)
I’ve decided to change my inquiry. Although I still want to work with kids, I realized that I would much rather focus on how children think and perceive the world rather than how they are affected by technology. I created a video for my technology project which prompted my project change. The responses the grade twos had where super amazing and advance so I’ve decided to change. I still need to formulate a new question and project plan. For now I plan to interview different grades (starting...Read More...

Hi everyone! For this brand new Inquiry Question, I'm going to be going back to my roots: looking into astronomy. Astronomy, since I was a little kid, has been a passion of mine, so I'm super excited to be getting back into it! My Inquiry Question for this cycle is: "What makes life on Earth possible?", and, ironically, I will be looking at planet Earth itself as little as possible. Why, you may ask? Because many of us already know the answer to this question; Earth is located in the...Read More...

Hey everyone! I'm glad to be back on butterfly effect posting again, and so far I've been satisfied with the work I've done in the past couple of cycles, but now it's time to try something different. So far historical, psychological, and health sciences have been explored but I'm willing to dive right into a social/ economical issue that dominates our time. For me, I always wondered why countries exist where poverty, illness, and corruption never ceased. Where does all the money go?Read More...

Hey all! So like I mentioned in my Inquiry Question post, I'm going to be continuing with my question from the last cycle, "What is the meaning of life?" however I'll be looking into the question from a philosophical perspective (hence the P.P.). My plan for this cycle is simple: I'm going to look into a different philosophical perspective of the meaning of life each round in the hopes of gaining a better understanding of what our purpose on this earth really is! Some potential perspectives...Read More...
