How has clean water shaped the modern world? Few inventions have shaped the modern world as much as clean water. We rely on clean water for our daily lives. Yet, we rarely ask ourselves how clean water came to be? How did it change the very face of our world? Have we finally solved clean water? And what role has it played in the medical field? The goal of the project was to answer that.
I spent time throughout my senior year designing and building a small cabin for my Senior Project.
I tried to learn about one different kind of art or craft a week over the course of the quarter. I would do some research about an aspect of the topic and then I would try to make that art or craft. I did things like painting, drawing, crochet, sewing, and embroidery.
These are screenshots of the venue we have built for an online prom. While not yet complete, these give a fairly good idea of the final product. The event itself is scheduled for May 15; between now and then, more screenshots will likely be added to that folder. The "Buildings" subfolder has not been updated recently, but the "Progress Shots" (screenshots taken over the course of the project from the same positions and give an idea of how construction has progressed) are being updated fairly regularly and reach back to day 1.
This is my presentation for my Environmental Impact Project. I wanted to share about why and how our planet is warming and what we as a community can do to help.
I wrote a paper about the history and evolution of human rights. It starts with the Magna Carta and goes until now. I chose to do this project for many reasons, mainly because I want to pursue a career in human rights in the future.
My project is a research project about Frida Kahlo. It's about her art,and her story - I find her so fascinating and I love her style. I find her very inspiring and creative.
This video was my junior presentation. I have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and I wanted to research how it affects the body and what can be done to treat the disease. I used my treatment team, my doctors, and public research studies for information.
I created a website that goes into why Sputnik 1 was so important, why it deserves more credit then we give it, and what it is.
Jewelry making has always interested me. Over the last year I have been collecting tools and honing my crafting skills to the point where I have so many unique pairs of earrings and necklaces that I didn’t know what to do with them all. I decided to learn how to build a business, how to make it profitable enough to support itself, and how to do all of this in a cost-effective and environmentally-friendly manner. Today I have GrayMoonArts, the culmination of months of curating my collection and learning photography skills and building a website from nothing.
The project is about indigenous aboriginal people in Australia and focuses a lot on the impact of colonization, culture, and religion.
This is my presentation on Japanese language and Culture. This project was originally started from my interest in going to Japan.
It has been a goal of mine for about a year now to build a computer. I decided to commit to it last November. I contacted a student studying computer science at Macalester college to support me and I built it within two months. I wrote a paper about my process, problems I ran into, and the parts of the computer.
My project examines and explores the different types of Powwow dancing as well as taking a closer look at Native traditions. I present multiple types of dancing, the history and differences of each dance.
This project began with my desire to change our state flag. The current flag is problematic because it contains racist imagery, is nearly identical to half of the US state flags and because visually it is unappealing. I created a new flag after research into design principals and into emblematic images of Minnesota. In this new flag, the blue represents the lakes and rivers of Minnesota, the green represents the forests and nature, the white represents the cold and snow of the state, and the star is the state's motto, which is "L'Etoile du Nord" which is French for "the North Star"
