This week we learned a lot about self driving cars and that they require a lot of very complicated coding. Self driving cars need to make tough decisions and if the car makes a mistake, the price may be very severe. People don’t need self driving cars so I think people should focus something more serious.
This week we learned about different types of games like bond breaker, and Phet. I learned alot about:Protons, Neutrons, and electrons. I had no idea we were going to learn about that. Technology has a lot of suprises and hope to see more fun ones.
This week we were reveiwing machines and we did a really fun game called escape the room(we had to open 3 locks instead of escaping a room). It involved a lot of team work, spy work, and patience!!! First time playing the game. I hope we will be able to play again. In technology the machines are really cool. I am excited to use them. I have heard of the machine before but I have never saw or used it. I couldn’t believe that the sauter machine gets hotter than 900 degrees hotter.
Yesterday after our moving up ceremony, we had to go down to our presenting spaces and we had to present to the audience. My mom told me that a trick was if I am feeling a little nervous, I should just pretend that everyone is naked and then it would not be so scary. Before I presented, I was pretty scared and was sweating a lot but when I was presenting, It wasn’t scary at all and I even enjoyed presenting my slifdeshow. This trick really helped me. I presented my capstone fourth. I hope lots of people liked my presentation. After I was done with my presentation, I was really happy that I presented and I was really proud of myself. In conclusion, I really enjoyed doing this project and I am looking forward to the next one.
At the begining of the capstone process, we had to pick out our topic. I chose cell phone addiction because I am addicted to my cell phone and I wanted to see how to help myself. I also chose cell phone addiction because I thought it would be fun to study cell phone addiction. Then we had to fill out a document called “Capstone Search Terms” and we had to find useful databases and search terms. After that, we had to use our databases and we had to get research from our databases. After we finished all of our research, we thought if we wanted to do a ingnite presentation or a ted talk presentation. I chose ted talk because I didn’t want to be pressured. with the time part. I put most of my research in my script. The rest of my research went to my other blog post, CAPSTONE LEFTOVERS. After I finished my script, I had to memerize all of my script. Then I made little notecards that say the first few words of each box and I was just practicing from their. I practiced to my mom and brother and dad so much. I had so much fun throught my process and hope other people also loved it.
An average user checks his phone at least 110 times a day!
3 quarters of the students would rather forget their wallet than forget their phone!
Something is very addictive about the ping of a text.
All of the online addiction is causing more bullying.
There is a class that costs $705 and all of the kids just sit there and are quietly scrolling, playing, or texting someone. Why would someone waist all that money so they could do something else and they will get no benefit.
Phubbing=The act of ignoring someone in a social setting by looking at your phone instead of paying attention to them.

Women is walking outside with 2 year old son and they are waiting for bus. Woman pulls out phone and starts playing games. Suddenly, hears loud crack, looks in the direction of the crack and finds son laying down bleeding because bus ran him over. Tried to bring to the hospital in time but to much blood left from his body. This only left the women weeping on the sidewalk.
Here is my Graphic Novel that I made with Harry Brass. I finally finished it. We had some unfair moments where I did the boring work and harry did all the fun work like drawing. I only got to sharpie for most of the panels so I think this is a learning experience for me.
On Thursday May 24th, 2018, I did my expert interview. There was a dude named Johnny and he was a very nice dude. He answered all twenty of my questions and for each question, he explained even more than I wanted to though for some questions he couldn’t answer them. I copy and pasted all of the questions into a survey and I made some of the answers multiple choice. I also made some of the answers short response. Some student interns that came to our school took the survey and chloe(student intern) sent it to some of her friends so I am going to have a lot of surveys completed. Right now I have six surveys completed so I am on a good track right now(Atleast I think I am). I am thinking about my site visit now and I am thinking I should either go to a resturant and take notes on how many people were on their phones and if it was only adults or if it was kids or if it was adults and kids. I will also try to guess their ages and see the most popular age that are on their phones. I might also go to a food court and take notes there. I think that the food court will be better because there will probably be more people at the food court.
Today we went to a field trip to a Peruvian restaurant. I was sitting with Om, Leo and Marcello and leo’s mom. There were plenty of different dishes like lomo saltado, Pollo saltado, ensalada, and tallarin saltado. We had to try to only talk in Spanish. I said mucho gracias and por favor. I tried a new drink which is called chocho masato. Before the field trip, I thought I would like nothing but after the field tried I really liked it. I liked the food so much that I took some of the food to go. In the end I really liked the food and I hope I can go back there one day.
