Capstone #1 Choosing A Topic

Skiing and golf have been my passion since kindergarden and I’ve always wanted to do something related to those two sports for my Capstone project. But now that Capstone has has came along I’ve added some other things to my list.

From the start of the project I was deciding between four topics. Skiing, Golf, Shoes, and I-phones. Pretty early on I cut I-phones because I’m not really a technology person. It doesn’t interest me. Eventually, after a little time I cut golf. I have huge interest in golf but it just doesn’t seem right for Capstone. So just like that I’m down to two. I’m really having a lot of trouble deciding between the two. But I actually think it won’t make that much of a difference if I choose either of them because one of the inquiry questions I came up with for skiing was, “Does the right equipment help you make a better performance?” That is very similar to shoes because I could ask if shoes help you do better in the sport the shoes are made for.

I’m still fighting between shoes and skiing but I’m 80% sure I’ll do skiing. Researching will help me perform better in races. Until next time, bye.



  1. I like how you talked about your challenges and what you are thinking of now. I can’t wait to here what you decide.

  2. I like the way you talked about all the topics you were considering. Then you narrowed it down. I wonder what you will choose in the end!

  3. I like how you explained your whole process in deciding skiing I thought your post was very interesing. Nice job 🙂

  4. I didn’t realize you had considered iPhones as a possible topic. I liked how you weeded it out by reflecting on the fact that you don’t see yourself as a technology person. Given your experience with ski racing, I’m sure you’ll be able to understand and tackle the research from a higher level than someone with no skiing experience. I’m looking forward to learning more about ski racing!

  5. I thought it was great that you gave so much detail, I learned so much!! I am sure that the idea of ski equipment will work fine. great job.

  6. I like how you said what you narrowed your topics down to, and you explained why you cut them out. I think you did a good job!
