2. Who was in your group? What was it like working with the group?
Kyle, Annette, and Ricky. They were challenging to work with, but overall rewarding because everyone brought something to the table that was unique.
3. What did you make in this project? What are a few things you learned?
In this project, I made a costume, 7 sketches, 2 light collages, a CD containing the 12 songs and pamphlet, one Agram 2000 gun with help from Kyle who helped sand it down, one transformed product, with the help of Ricky the scenic model, I also did all my physics and math portions of the project.
4. What well in this project?
Overall everything went well, we finished everything on time, we never lost any material, and we all knew the correct information for everything to go smoothly.
5. What struggles did you have and how did you overcome them?
The only problem we had was trying to figure out how to make our scenic model to be two stories, which we eventually figured out and construction went smoothly. It was also difficult to go through exhibition and the weeks leading up to it because Annette was gone.
6. What things did you do well concerning work ethic and what could you improve on?
I am able to stay focused for a long period of time and work on a project until it is finished, but I do tend to procrastinate on starting work if its not completely necessary.
7. How would you change this project?
I would change this project so that certain people are required to do parts and if they don’t do it, their grade is impacted, not everyones.
8. Describe your Humanities learning during this project. What did you learn? What will you take away with you? Is there anything you wish you could have explored more?
In this project, I learnt about the history of several different wars and and a lot about literature. Romeo and Juliet helped me better understand old world English and helped me see a play in a completely different way. One thing I will take away with me is the ability to pitch a project, I know I will be able to utilized that skill in the future. I wish I was able to have explored the different wars more, especially the Cro Mangon/Neanderthal war.
9. Describe your Physics learning during this project. What did you learn? What will you take away with you? Is there anything you wish you could have explored more?
I learnt all the physics behind a gun, if I needed to, I would literally be able to build an Agram 2000 from scratch and have it be fully functional. I wish I would have learnt more about the physics behind older weapons, I mostly learnt about new age ones.
10. BRIEFLY answer the driving questions of the project were, now that the project is completely over: What is good? What is evil? Can good ever overcome evil? Is man doomed to repeat history or can he learn from his mistakes?
To be good is to want to do things that benefit others and expect nothing or little in return. Evil is to want to do things to harm others with it in no way benefiting yourself. It is also the unwarranted hatred of innocent life. It has been proven countless times that good can overcome evil. I do think man is doomed to repeat history, but, a lot of people have learned from mistakes from the past and hopefully we will learn in the future.
