We have now presented our capstones to some of the kindergarten and second grade classes. We also presented on camera. It was very nerve racking and kind of scary too. I performed fairly well, and messed up only a few times. It was also an exciting experience, as we had finally finished capstone! I felt relieved when i finished because all of the tension had been building up inside me. When I was actually presenting, I was thinking very carefully about what I had to say, especially the parts where I usually have trouble. I tried to be relaxed, but it was extremely hard. I was a little more relaxed at the live performance. Overall I really enjoyed capstone, and learned so much from it. It was such a fun project!
I finally finished my presentation! I learned so much from just putting it together. I learned how to choose the right pictures that fit with my presentation. I learned how to get clear picture that make sense. I also learned to get pictures with not a lot of writing. I learned how to put images from the internet into my slideshow. The hardest part was finding a good picture for slide 5. I tried 3 different images before I found the right one. My main problems were that the picture either was too stretched out when I put it on the slide or the picture had too much writing. This was very frustrating as I was looking for a long time before I found the perfect picture. Sometime I found pictures I liked better that the one I had originally picked out. Sometimes the pictures were inappropiate, and that was fairly annoying. Overall I learned so much from the making of the presentation and have had fun, even though it was frustrating at times. Here are all the resources I used in my capstone:

You wouldn’t want to live without vaccinations

I have finally completed my research and answered my main inquiry question (see Capstone 1 and 2). I have learned so much. For instance, I never knew the process to FDA approve a drug. I definitely didn’t know how complex that process is. I also learned a lot about the cons of vaccines. I knew the pros, but not so much the cons. I also learned a lot about the laws surrounding vaccines and how mis-information affects parents decisions about whether or not to vaccinate their child. Overall, I learned so much! I am so excited to take the next step forward and put together my presentation.
