Iowa State OPPTAG Experience Reflection

The first class I took in Track I was Protect the Pringle. In that class we were given 5 pieces of paper, tape, and a pringle. Then we had to protect the pringle. We did the challenge again but with only 3 pieces of paper. My second class was called There's Science In My Food. In that class we combined milk and vinegar together to make cheese curds. We also got to try some different types of cheese. I learned the most from the Virtual Reality session. I learned a lot about how people make Virtual Reality they made the C6. One of the things I learned about the university is that it took 50,000 bricks to make their clock tower. The most fun part of the day was touring the campus and seeing a lot of the buildings. One of the things that would have improved the experience would be not having to wake up at 4:00 am. I think we did this so we could see what college is actually like.

Independent Project Reflection 2017

My project was on Duct Tape. I chose this for my project because I use Duct Tape quiet a bit and I didn't know anything about Duct Tape, and I wanted to learn more about it. One of the coolest things I learned about Duct Tape was that people have been using it since World War 2. some of the things I still want to learn about this topic are how many different types of Duct Tape that are in the world. I chose to do a Google Slide for my project because I have used it before and I'm familiar with it. One of the things that I would improve on my project is having less text on my slides. One of my favorite things about my project was how I had examples at the end of some things people have made with Duct Tape.

DWA Publishing 1st Quarter

 DWA 9/6/17
 I think that imagination is more important than knowledge because you can imagine anything you want but there is a limit on what you can know. There is no limit on what you can imagine. I also think that imagination can make you happier.

DWA 9/8/17
I think that what it means to talk less and say more means to say important things and don't just talk about stuff that is not important. Also don't just chatter or talk about white noise.

Words of Wisdom

Here is the link to my Words of Wisdom:
One of the many things I learned while doing this project was that a lot of people had really insightful wisdom to give. Some people gave really deep advice that shocked me. I also learned that it was impressive how many responses I got. I had asked a few extra people and I had quite a few extra Words of Wisdom.

Nauvoo Field Trip Reflection

My favorite part of the trip was the rope making because I never knew how they made rope and i thought it was cool that they used plant fiber to make it. Something new I learned was that they would store candles in a box underground and that they would put straw with the candles. I also learned that in 1 day they could make 200 candles and I thought that was crazy. The Mormons moved west because they were being persecuted for their religion. I thought that is was interesting that the Mormons din't fight back against the people who wanted them to leave. I would want to go to the gunsmith and probably learn about how they made the guns back then because I think it would be cool to see if today we still use some of the same ways that they hunted back then.

Lit. Circle Moral Dilemma

A moral dilemma is when you have to decide between doing something right or wrong. The moral dilemma in The False Prince was if Sage should go through with Connor's plan or defy him and tell the regents Connor's plan. The author of the book is Jennifer A. Nielsen.                                                                                       DON'T READ ON IF YOU HATE SPOILERS!!!
As you read on later into the book you find out that Sage is actually Prince Jaron. You also find out he has been hiding in Avenia for 4 years after the pirates tried to kill him. He knows he is doing the right thing by going through with the plan because the throne is actually his. If I was in Sage's shoes then I would not have done things differently because the throne was his because he was next in the royal bloodline.

Independent Project Reflection

My project was about people trying to get to Mars. I told about how robots have gone to Mars and plans to send people there. I presented using a slideshow. What I liked most about my project was that it involved space and I have always liked to learned about space. the hardest part of my project was figuring out to make a bibliography. It was actually easy to figure out once I got about halfway through. I learned quite a lot If I could do it over I would have more pictures and less words.
