After learning about the relationship sports play in charity we were asked to create a game that promoted awareness and understanding of a specific charity or charities in general. We were paired in groups Read More…

## Atmosphere Pressure

In my math and science course, Street-math, we have recently looked at atmosphere. For my project I choose an equation that measures atmospheric pressures at different heights. I think this issue really is important for me because I live in Chicago where we are known for our tall Read More…

## Table of Values

For my Street Math class,our first action project was to pick a math topic and see how it relates to the real world. The topic I chose was table of values. I related it to electricity and showed why it is useful for electricians. Below is my prezi presentation of it.

## Pascal Triangle

In my math and science class we are looking at math problems and their relationship to urban planning. For my project I chose to look at the Pascal Triangle. The Pascal Triangle is really fascinated and the amount of patterns in it is mind blowing. I connected the math of binomials to the engineering process for blueprints in urban planning as Read More…

## Bridging It Together~DC~

Our first action project in Urban Redux was to build a bridge. My group decided to use bamboo for it’s well known strength. First we calculated the dimensions of the joints and members. With the proper calculations completed we began to construct the bridge. We used guerrilla glue and duct tape to piece together our bridge. Once it Read More…

## Garden Plan BKJ

## How Do Fuel Cells Create Pollution? by MML

In my fuel class, I created a research paper on fuel cells and how they contribute pollution to the earth. In my paper I talk about pros and cons of fuel cell and where they are found in the world. I’m most proud of the pros and cons I listed because it really shows how fuel cells Read More…

## Windmill Milestone 3

For our third and final milestone in our math and science class (design and engineering) we designed, created, and tested solar panels.  We did this by first planning out what materials to use, and then we  drew out the design to see how it would look.  We used paper plates for wings, and used wooden Read More…
