Rube Goldberg Designing the Machine

So I thought originally to ring a bell as the thing I wanted to accomplish for my Rube Goldberg, but then I thought wait could I do something more practical. This was a challenge because there was not a wide variety of things to choose from what I was thinking of so I came up with the idea of getting a ball into a bin. My bins are going to be rectangular baskets and best of all I can use most of the same steps that I was going to use for my first idea and it also has the same amount of steps which is good because the minimum is 8 steps but I have more, that is good so I don’t have to think of a whole different plan. The process required a lot of research, I spent a couple hours after school one day. So basically I had to make some changes to the original and some challenges occurred and the process was hard.

The process for making my podcast was really hard and we had to first decide what topic we were going to talk about. Then we had to write our script and rehearse a lot so we could get it right when we recorded.  After that we recorded and that’s when our practice cane in handy. it was hard to get a sound box and a microphone because there were 20 of us and only 4 microphones so we had to record and the give the tech to other people. last but not least we had to edit and fix our recording. There some challenges during this period of time one was getting a good recording, another one is that we had to add music, and finding the right  music that we liked and also getting our script long enough we had to make sure our script was at least 2 mins long. In conclusion there were multiple steps that we had to finish and challenges along the way but we’re excited to make more podcasts!

One plastic bag

One plastic bag

BY: Miranda Paul

In class I read “One Plastic Bag.” The Story  mainly about a woman who reuses plastic bags.My favorite part was when Isatou and the women make purses out of the plastic bags. Message of this book is polluting is not the way to go.  I think you should too make the purses out of plastic bags because the plastic bags on the ground looked ugly and goats were dying. The book made me think about why plastic bags are bad for the Earth.

Banning plastic bags in Bali

TED Talk
This book was mainly about two girls  end a group of kids who made Bali plastic bag free. my favorite part was when they said that Bali was already of the way to Plastic bag free. This Ted talk reminded me of one plastic bag. The message of the Ted talk is that problems can always be solved. This Ted talk made me think what problem can I solve. The Ted talk inspired me to try to solve a problem.
