Reflection: Jean Yee

Pre-camp reflections
     What interests you about this project?
For the extraction of caffeine, what interests me is that caffeine is usually not found separately added to drinks to make them favorable, thus the process would be more interesting. For the fastest ball challenge, it is the simplicity of the project that makes it interesting to me as this type of project can usually be easily done in my school.

      What do you want to learn by doing this project?
      What questions do you have about this project?
     What do you personally want to have achieved by the end of this project?

Reflections on Plenary Sessions

My key learning points from each session
  1. Plenary session by Prof Kerry Sieh
I learnt that the sinking of islands may be a certain sign to an approaching earthquake, that geologists use natural items given to also interpret what happened and is happening, like the coral on rocks, or layers of sand on the earth left behind by tsunamis.
  1. IT for Animation by Prof hock Soon
I learnt that a simple animation goes a long way in is production, from it’s storyboarding, to the coloring of the characters, it involves many people. I also learnt that 2D productions cost more than 3D productions.
  1. Innovative breakthroughs in Nano-Science and Nano-Technology by Prof Ma Jan
I learnt that Nano-Technology is very helpful, especially in war efforts, as it provides a better covering for soldiers should a war break out. It also helps in surgical cases, such as replacing a bone, which may be drilled in with screws, but may be replaced by bio-adhesive to prevent the screws from harming anything.
New questions I have about the topic are how can other disasters be forecasted, especially with help from nature.
