Capstone- Choosing a Main Inquiry Question and Choosing Sub Questions

For my capstone after I chose my topic I had to make my main question and sub questions. My main question is “How did Apple inc improve people’s everyday life to now?” I thought that would be a interesting question and a fun question to.  This question is not about the technology, but it is not really all about the company it is about people and the company and the technology. My sub questions are is the design for Apple inc phones better than other phones? Why was Apple inc created? What does apple build of off when they are building something? How often does the technology change? How many times does a ipad iphone or computer take before it is right? I think these sub questions are good sub questions because they can help me with my research and I think they will help me for my main question. How I think my sub questions will help me with my main question is my sub question will help me find more information for my main question.

Capstone- Choosing a Topic

In class we started a new project called Capstone. Capstone is a project where we choose a topic a do research on it. We pick a main question then we do our research based off of that. We do this for about two months, we do this mostly in school.

When we first thought about capstone I had a few different topics. First I wanted to do McDonald’s and is the food actually really bad for you. I also thought it would be a topic that would be fun to research about for two months. Then I decided that McDonald’s was not a good topic for capstone so I changed my topic. I decided to change my topic to Netflix because that would also be a fun topic and it is something I use almost everyday and I think that is very interesting. Then again I decided that this would not be a good topic for me, one because it would be really hard to find an interview, two because after a while it could get a little boring towards the end. Then finally my mom helped me come up with this idea I chose Apple Inc. I thought this would be a good topic because I have four apple devices and I use my phone (which is Apple) everyday. Also this project can be really fun. So I chose Apple Inc. and made my question which is “How did Apple’s products improve peoples everyday life from when they did not have Apple (mostly iPhones) to now?” I really liked this question and I think I can make a good capstone off of this question.
