Capstone Blog Post #1 – Choosing a Topic

Capstone: A big inquiry based project that every fifth grade student participates in.

These last couple of weeks have been stressful for me for a few reasons, one of which is I couldn’t choose a topic! When we needed to pick our topics, I was totally ready. I had my main research question and all of my sub questions due ahead of time, but then when it came to having resources, I knew that I had to change topics. The topic I had chosen was on the brain, which is very ambitious, considering I am in fifth grade, but what can I say is I want to be a neurosurgeon. I knew that I had to change topics because all possible resources for my topic were above a collegiate level and I am in fifth grade so there is no possible way I could comprehend what information they were delivering. Then the hard part came, picking a new topic. The worst part of this process was the pressure I was feeling. What if I can’t find a topic that I think is interesting? What if I can’t finish in time? I kept thinking these things to myself, and wasn’t thinking that every night when I fell asleep worrying about my topic it was right in front of me. One of the only things that really interested me and was a fun topic to study. And that is when I made my final decision, Yogibo. Yogibo LLC is a very original company that takes bean bags to a whole new level. I have one in my room and it is the most comfortable thing ever! Unlike a normal bean bag a Yogibo conforms to your body and supports your lumbar spine. It is designed to be extremely light weight and space efficient. Another thing I find interesting about Yogibo is that it is very international. Every part that is used to make the finished product is made in a different country, and then assembled in the US. The coolest thing about Yogibo is that it supports and designs their products to aid people living with Autism or Sensory Processing Disorder. Also, Yogibo isn’t just a bean bag company, they offer a variety of colorful pillows, frisbees, ottomans and more. I think that Yogibo is a very interesting and cool company, when I thought of this topic I knew it was perfect for me, and didn’t doubt myself once.
