Chloe's Projects of 2015-2016

Earth Science

Earthquake pbl

Driving Question: How can we, as structural engineers, construct a two story house in California for Tony Stark that will withstand seismic activity?

This project was a group project. We had to build a model of a house that will not break down when a earthquake occurs. Since it was a model we used popsical sticks and strws and other materials. Our house had broken down (some parts) when the final shake test occured. This project was done in our Earthquakes unit.

Atmosphere humans 30 hands project

This project was based on the human impact of global warming. We made slides on pic collage and downloaded them to 30 hans and made a presentation. These are the slides from my 30 hands project. This project taught me the explanation of why global warming is happening and what are the effects. It also taught me what's happening to Earth. This project was done in our atmosphere unit.

Invention Convention

The invention convention is a group or single project where you make a invention out of trash that will do one or more of the 3 R's. Recycle, Reuse, and Reduce, are the 3 R's. Also, the invention that you create has to run on a renewable energy. My invention is called Sun and wind car. For short it is S.A.W.C. It reduces the amount of oil and gas used. It uses the sun and wind to move. Our invention solves the oil and gas used for cars and it solves it by running on sun and wind.

My favorite unit was Erosion, Deposition, and Weathering unit. I got 100% on the test and I was really intrested. My favorite part was the pic collage we made about the different kinds of weathering. They were chemical and mechanical weathering. This unit was about the cycle of rocks breaking. This cycle is called the Geologic cycle.
