Introduction: To create my animation, I incorporated the dialogue of the fairy tale into the animation. I created 15 different poses in total of 7 characters. I made sure that everything was linked up and that no speech bubbles overlap. To make my animation interactive for the viewers, I made them able to pick a key to press. Picking the certain key, or button will determine which Act 2 version will be played.
Medical advances continue to amazes us everyday. We live in a world full of endless possibilities; surrounded by people with endless potential. That is why I found Dr. Quyen Nguyen’s research on fluorescent dyes to aid in finding and removing malignant tumors was inspiring and interesting. She collaborated on this project with Roger Tsien, who received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2008 for his work on green fluorescent protein. In simplest of terms, after injecting the dye, you must shine light on the area in order to see the tumor. You can even see the difficult-to-find margins.
This my scratch animation that involves a cat named Jim wjho is looking for food and meets his buddy Pim who asks his friend Tims to help and Tims leads them to a magical bowl of cheesy puffs. Pim eats some and the cheesy puffs run away. They are followed by the other characters and when the cheesy puffs are found by the characters, they begin to fly and the cheesy puffs are eaten by Jim and Tims with the magical ending of them all exploding except for the cheesy puffs and Tims.
This project was very eye-opening. I now have a new respect for people who do this for a living. A nice part about this project was that I decided to be productive for once in my worthless life. I worked for approximately 6-8 hours on this in total. I finished on Friday afternoon when it was due Tuesday in class. I'm proud that I did not procrastinate on this project. I was so glad that I did not have to a pull an all-nighter to finish. But, this project was far from perfect. The conversations did not feel natural, I had to cut out some scenes, and the animated basketball shot was weird.
Organic food is good for us! Right? It's certainly more expensive, and defiantly advertised towards "heath-conscious" people. Yet, there are apparently some articles out there saying it's not actually that much healthier, if healthier at all. Being someone who grew up eating and drinking organic food and being told it was better for me, this shocked me. So, I've decided for a research project I'll look into the argument of whether or not organic food really is worth the money. I'll gather evidence from both sides, choose the convincing side, and refute the loser with my new-found knowledge.
We will design a side scroller game in which the player moves around the main sprite with arrow keys in order to cause the sprite to collect lives, answer questions, and beat the bosses. We will teach 3 different subjects from what we learned in 7th grade.
Rachel will deal with the easy level, which is about math and solving for the variable of an equation.
Game Mechanics: Rules- This game is a side scroller game, so you are only allowed to move right, left, jump up, and come back down. Once you run into a wall and approach a question, you have a certain amount of time to answer or drag an answer from the word bank, or you lose one life. You get three lives. Gameplay- The sprite is able to move through the arrow keys. There is also a space bar shooter. The left and right keys are used to move left and right, while the up arrow key is used to jump. The down key is to come down if on a higher platform.
From what I learned about income inequality, I believe it can be defined as the difference in the money you make from one group to another. But not just groups, it can also be from people to people, or even communities to communities. The major part about income inequality is that people have more than they usually need when people need more than what they usually have.
I took the time to interview my grandmother. According to Ada May, gentrification means wealthier people moving to urban areas and rent rates continuously increasing. She has experienced gentrification in many ways. She says, “I’ve had a lot of friends and people I knew that’s been through it more than I have.” She tells a story about her sister. Her sister’s name is Marie. She used to live in an apartment for 6 years. Many wealthier people, including white people were moving into her apartment complex. Marie’s rent increased by months. Soon enough Marie was struggling to pay her rent.
In the article "Genomic Sequence and Virulence of Clonal Isolates of Vaccinia Virus Tiantan, the Chinese Smallpox Vaccine Strain" the authors investigate the possiblity of researching a cure for weaponized smallpox virus. I found it interesting because they are one of the first sources I found that addressed the possibility of smallpox as a weapon. I also learned that the medical name for smallpox is 'variola'. In the abstract they expressed how the Chises are using the vaccination of smallpox as a model for the vaccination of HIV.
For my economics class we are partnering up with someone to interview a person who is currently living under minimum wage. For the economic project we have to find and ask someone (politely) if they are living on minimum wage. Once we find someone we have to ask for an interview and then set up an interview date. We then ask basic (or not so basic) questions about how is it living under minimum wage and what would be their ideal minimum wage. After all that we set up a follow up interview date to ask new question or if they change their mind about minimum wage or their answer.
Introduction: This is an animation about three young adults who travel to Planet Omicron because Earth is almost destroyed. They find that it is great for life, but inhabited by the monsters. I created this for Tech class, and I used Scratch to make it. It was really fun but challenging to create a story that moves and talks
(The three people’s shuttle appears from stage left, flying ins space. After a bit, the backdrop changes to inside the shuttle).
Jason- Ok, this is it guys.
Sofie- Yeah, lets get ready
(Puts on equipment)
Jason- Prepare for landing!
This is the story of the great hero, Pink, who is on his way to become a great knight of Landloft. However, on his way he faces some difficult challenges! Act 1: Scene 1: (Pink is thinking): I can’t wait until I take my entry test for knighthood! There’s no way I can fail! I’m Pink!

Will, who is a newsboy living in London, decides to try to track down the theif that has taken his friend's bag of diamonds. Little does he know, his friend is a culprit himself, and that the mysterious woman and her black cat are hiding something else.
This is a project created on Scratch. The title of this animation is "The Universe's Ruler." It follows the life of a regular person named Shahreen whose plan is to become the ruler of the universe. However, when she is just a student, no one believes her and feels that she is just mentally insane or something. Later on, she takes over the world, then the next goal is taking over the universe. Many people decide to join up with her to help her take over the universe. There are rebels, too.
this animation shows astronauts who are discovering an alternate dimension that turns out to be the opposite of the way humans view pets. instead in this dimension, the animals rule the humans and they are kept as pets. the planet has a strange set of rules as that if you runaway as a pet, you are eaten and devoured. while the astronauts are exploring the planet, they see a lion who attacks them and kills them. this is because he sees them as pets.

The past month, I was introduced to Scratch, an editing program where you can create your own animations. To create motion and use dialogue in terms of speech bubbles, there are a variety of "blocks" that you can choose from to drag for a Sprite (a character) to make them move, or animate. Scratch, for beginners like myself is quite difficult– it almost feels impossible to use. Once you get the hang of it, it's like riding a bike. The more you practice with Scratch, the better your animation gets. I did enjoy getting to let creativity flow and find out more about the program.
My animation is based off of the book (later broadway show and movie) 'Phantom of the Opera'. The story takes place in the Paris Opera, 1911. The new girl Christine sings for another member of the cast who was unable to make the show, and captures the attention of the 'Phantom', (also known as the 'Opera Ghost') and her childhood lover Raoul. The plot is about the three main characters interacting with one final event at the end where everything is resolved to a certain extent.

My Scratch Project talks about Michaelo Blutho, and his brother Gobo Blutho, who have problems getting along with each other. I animated this project using scratch.mit.edu , and I used different forms of blocks to animate it. I really am proud of how far I did, and I wouldn't mind doing more work in Scratch.
Setting: At the model home, in the living room. Michaelo Blutho is working at his computer.
[Gobo enters stage right.]
Gobo: Michaelo. Still haven’t found a job yet?
Michaelo: It’s better than what you do, performing tricks on people.
My project was an animation on Scratch. You follow a cat named John, who's clearly intoxicated, on his quick journey around the city, all while being chased by his friends, Jon and Juan. John resist his friends, and manages to get all the way to the boardwalk before the climax of the story.
The animation itself is quite short, a little under two minutes, but I think anything over two minutes would become way too boring because of how limited my knowledge on Scratch is.

At first, most of the project seemed simple and I wanted to challenge myself. Had I already known how to use AutoCAD, I would have pushed myself further. I actually learned that being an architect is not basic math, science and skill. It requires a lot of knowledge to create certain things.
What I think of my personal project idea and inquiry question is that I don’t think it would be very easy. Every moment of my entire 10th grade would have to be dedicated to this. I haven’t even found a coach/supervisor yet that would be willing to take care of the baseball team. I am working on that right now. On the other hand, this would be a very cool personal project to do. It would look good on my college transcript and it would very popular in the BSGE community.
