At school right now we are doing Capstone. We are doing Capstone for about two months. Capstone is doing research on a topic you choose, then creating a final product to show what you have learned and something to teach others.
On Wednesday I chose the topic Space travel for Capstone, since we are not doing an all about I’m studying the topic Spaceships for civilians that is in Space travel. It was partially a struggle for me to chose a topic because I couldn’t really do more on Exoplanets which was my passion project and I was always interested into battleships but I didn’t feel like doing Battleships because there is nothing I want to research on them. I am really interested into space travel and I want to know when the first design of a successful spaceship is out. The movies Star Wars and Star Trek really got me excited into this topic. I feel like for the site visit and interview I might have to go to NASA or Space X which makes me really excited but I’m not sure I’ll be even able to get there. Yesterday and today everybody got a large poster and started brainstorming questions about their topic on post-its then putting the post-its onto the poster. My main question is “what will the designs of spaceships for civilians be and how will the designers incorporate safety in the design?” I will have to research more on this topic for Capstone. Right now I don’t have my sub-questions but soon I will have them.
